However, ice always masks the taste and should be avoided, unless you have to down the cheap nasty stuff.

It's really not rocket science, most Scotch drinkers consider the above basic knowledge, Google it yourself and you'll see.

I'd rather enjoy the drinks than googling about them, and passing that "knowledge" on to message boards

Of course, no impurity from the tap water to spoil the taste They even say the best source of water will be the spring water from the same area where the scotch is produced, but I guess that's pushing it.

Never tried fine aged cognac with a bit of water, will have to next time.

Agree, the glass is a must. I usually just stick with Riedel.

I love enjoying those kinds of drinks in the winter. However, one of favourites to use is Sangster's Rum Cream, which is a lot like Bailey's but has more of a rum/chocolate taste to it.

Eggnog anyone?

Eggnog, also egg nog, is a sweetened dairy-based beverage made with milk, cream, sugar, beaten eggs (which gives it a frothy texture) and flavoured with ground cinnamon and nutmeg; alcoholic versions also exist with the addition of various liquors, such as brandy, rum, and whiskey.

Eggnog is a popular drink throughout The Americas, and is usually associated with winter celebrations such as Christmas and New Year. Eggnog has long been believed to be an excellent source of magnesium. Eggnog is also very popular in Central Europe, but only its cognac version, which can be bought almost everywhere, mostly in Christmas-markets, during November and December. Commercially, non-alcoholic eggnog is available around Christmas time and during the winter.

History

The origins, etymology, and even the ingredients used to make the original eggnog drink are debated. Eggnog, or a very similar drink, may have originated in East Anglia, England, though it may also have been developed from posset (a medieval European beverage made with hot milk). An article[1] by Nanna Rögnvaldsdóttir, an Icelandic food expert, states that the drink adopted the nog part of its name from the word noggin, a Middle English phrase used to describe a small, wooden, carved mug used to serve alcohol. Another name for this English drink was Egg Flip. Yet another story is that the term derived from the name egg-and-grog, a common Colonial term used to describe rum. Eventually the term was shortened to egg'n'grog, then eggnog.

The ingredients for the drink were too expensive and uncommon for the lower classes, but it was popular among the aristocracy. "You have to remember, the average Londoner rarely saw a glass of milk", says author and historian James Humes (To Humes It May Concern, July 1997). "There was no refrigeration, and the farms belonged to the big estates. Those who could get milk and eggs to make eggnog mixed it with brandy or Madeira or even sherry."

The drink crossed the Atlantic to the English colonies during the 18th century. Since brandy and wine were heavily taxed, rum from the Triangular Trade with the Caribbean was a cost-effective substitute. The inexpensive liquor coupled with plentiful farm and dairy products helped the drink become very popular in America.

Absolut Mandarin + Cranberry Juice is excellent. Very dangerous though, they go down like kool-aid.

Vodka redbulls, gin&tonic, rye&ginger, and vodka limes for me. As for shooters, typically jager bombs or lemon drops (vodka shooter with sugar rimmed glass and a wedge of lemon). B52's, china whites, or liquid cocaine if we feel like something different.
