Are we really less than a week away until Christmas? Argh! How do I let this happen every year – where I’m scrambling those last few days to get all the stuff in that I should have been doing the weeks prior?! Good thing there’s booze! With the release of Mount Gay’s Limited Edition XO Cask […]

Merry Christmas, foxy ones! I hope you’ve all had a wonderful holiday season and you’re surrounded by loved ones, comfort and joy! And cocktails! Let’s not forget the booze. Cheers!
Ah, eggnog…one of the most divisive holiday treats. It’s up there with candy corn and fruitcake and sweet Manischewitz wine. It’s traditional and has to be included in holiday roundups, but do people really like it?? I, for one, am a fan of the homemade stuff and I’ve made it for years to rave reviews. As I’ve mentioned before, it’s […]
I hope every last one of you foxy mofos gets everything your heart desires this year! I’ll just be hanging out next to this raging fire in my leopard print cat suit until the new year. Feliz Navidad, my foxes!

It was delightful in both the summery Hibiscus Lemonade as well as in the hot cocktail I created […]
We’re in the homestretch of our 12 Days of Cocktails list here at Bit By a Fox, and while the temps are reaching close to 70 degrees in New York City(!!!), I’m getting more and more in the spirit! This morning, for instance, I decided it would be particularly festive of me to put a […]
Oh, hi! How does a steaming cup of spicy sugar butter sound to you right about now? I’ve always loved the idea of hot buttered rum but I haven’t always been crazy about the actual variations I’ve had over the years. Sugar? Butter? Spices? Rum?? Yes, to all of that! But once that combo is […]
