It’s almost the final stretch of the year, which means it’s time to raise a glass and celebrate the holidays and the end of 2021.

December is one of the biggest months for alcohol sales, according to data from the Census Bureau and the Federal Reserve. And compared to 2019, dollar sales for prepared cocktails increased 177%. We can raise a glass to that.

So, what will you be drinking?

Will you make your own bitterscotch or take a class on how to mix holiday cocktails?

Or maybe you’re a beer drinker looking forward to picking up a seasonal favorite like Harpoon’s Wintry Mix? After all, Boston is one of America’s best craft beer cities.


If you’re skipping the alcohol but still toasting to health and happiness, what’s something special that you will you sip on this holiday? A white mocha hot chocolate? A bubbly Cranberry Bramble?

We want to hear about your go-to holiday drink and why it’s your favorite in the survey below or e-mail us at [email protected]. Your submission could be featured in an upcoming story.
