I would do something simple like adding a shot of raspberry liquor to a sparkling wine or champagne.

What about something with cranberry?  Like a vodka cranberry with a sugar rimmed glass.  The sugar would look kinda icy!

Spiced cider with rum. Works best with spiced rum like Captain Morgan’s. The cider can be heated in big batches and kept in a coffee urn/pot/etc to keep warm.

For a drink you can drink all night, how about vodka sprite with just a splash of peppermint schnapps. You could also make a variation on white Russians (maybe a different flavor kahlaua) and call it a snowball.

Since egg nog is sweet, creamy, and will be mixed with rum, I’d suggest something with different ingredients.  Maybe a wassail, a spiced cider with whiskey, or a mulled wine?  I also really like the idea of vodka & cranberry, but I’d probably do vodka with ginger ale and a splash of cranberry – this would be my bet for an all-night drink.  Or just make it easy – champagne (or your choice of sparkling wine) is always festive around the holidays.  And maybe toss in some fresh cranberries as a garnish.

I plan to have bubbly available for my entire reception (we’re having our favorite blueberry sparkling wine for the toast, so that won’t be available until after the toast).

I love Christmas!  When I saw your thread, I immediately thought of this holiday martini bar menu I saw posted on another site:

Hot cocoa (and spiced cider, etc) is ridiculously cheap and everyone loves it. It;s the alcohol that drives up the price.
