    My company is having it's christmas party tonight. Every year we have it in a place where there is a bar attached somehow. This year we are renting a hall without a bar. So I am wondering if people have any tasty concoctions. I'm gonna go to the liquor store and buy just one bottle (hopefully) of something. They will have pop at the party to mix stuff with if need be. What do you folks suggest.

    Looking for something different here, something out of the ordinary, which is why I made the thread.

    Not really out of the ordinary for a Christmas party, but I'd go with some spiced rum. You can mix it with the pop, or with eggnog if you want something more Christmasy.

    If you're looking for "Staples", and don't think people are going to want anything out of the ordinary,

    Vodka is the universal solvent of alcohol. There's nearly nothing you can't mix it with that doesn't taste at least as good as the original mixer. There's also plenty of infused and flavored vodkas you could try instead.

    Rye whiskey is great as well, goes great on its own or with ginger ale. Or you could go for one of the other "brown" liquors, like bourbon or scotch, though the former goes better with coke, and the latter is better neat or with a dash of water.

    Rum's another good choice, you could mix it with coke, or even cider. Just take care which rum you end up getting, in terms of white, gold, dark or spiced.

    Or you could class it up with some gin and make martinis (provided someone else has vermouth), gin and tonics, etc.

    But if you're looking for something a little more exotic...

    What about Calvados? It's an apple brandy, a bit expensive though, but works great as an apertif or just something during cocktail time.

    Another idea is Advocaat. It's something like a creme liqueur, with a taste like butterscotch or pudding. Great for the holidays, alongside such staples as egg nog.

    Or port? Port is a sweetened fortified wine, again, great as an accompanyment for dessert, and even better in the cold weather of winter.

    ^ I'm thinking Rum too. I drank that 7 days straight when I was in Disney this summer.

    I just didn't know if people had any weird Schnapp's concoctions that they have tried lately.

    I also like the Brandy idea. Too much good tasty things to choose from.

    Gin, lots of it. Mix it with club soda, or tonic water, and you'll be a happy camper.

    If you have not left already, consider Drambuie. Old-school (so you have some style), delicious (so people will appreciate it), mixable with several options (so it's convenient), and they've just kicked off an advertising blitz (so you'll have some hipster points for being an early adopter).

    ...it works like snorting pop rocks works.
