9 Holiday Drinks Popular in the North Pole

It’s holiday season! Who better to give you drink recommendations than the heroes chillin’ in the North Pole?


Does anyone else find it funny that Christmas time seems to be the one time of year when everyone hangs out in the one room you don’t ever hang out in?


It seems like people always gravitate towards the kitchen until there’s a tree posted up in our living rooms. But we never hang out in the living room, so what’s the deal with the holiday season?


Is it that people always gravitate toward an indoor tree? Is it Christmas spirit? The delectable scent of pine?


Hard to say, but as long as we’re warming up the previously empty room with a fire, a good looking Christmas tree, and plenty of holiday activities to keep us occupied, we might as well carry on with the holiday warming theme and warm up our insides by getting some tasty drinks delivered for the whole crew.


Unsheath your Ugly Sweater, get out the boxes of ornaments dating back to Great Granny’s first Christmas, and crack a cold one, pour one up, mix a cocktail, take a shot… However you plan warm up this holiday season, warm up a little extra with Handoff. Welcome back to the living room!


Anyway, the folks up at the North Pole sent us a comprehensive drink list to boost Christmas spirit and have been generous enough to make all drinks available in the Handoff app. They’ve been around for a few hundred years, so when it comes to shopping for alcohol delivery, it makes sense to trust their judgement.

Beer: A Reindeer’s Favorite Snack 🍻

It’s a well-known fact that every reindeer loves beer. Here are some selections from the most famous reindeer on the planet.


Comet’s Selection: Breckenridge Brewery Christmas Ale $9.99, 6-pack, 7.1% ABV

Comet told us to mention he never drinks and flies.


Prancer’s Selection: Founders Brewing Breakfast Stout $10.49, 6-pack, 8.3% ABV

Strong beer for a strong reindeer. Prancer knows you can’t drink all day if you don’t start in the morning. Tastes a little like coffee… must be breakfast time 😎


Rudolph’s Selection: Avery Brewing White Rascal $9.99, 6-pack, 5.6% ABV

A red nose in a White Rascal is a pretty festive move. Rudolph said he was inspired to drink this beverage during his time on the Island of Misfit Toys.



Liquor: Santa’s Naughty Juice 🥃

Santa works all year round to make sure everything’s in order, so at the end of every long work day, he has a very particular taste in what he chooses to drink. Here are his top 3 liquor selections because everyone deserves a day on the naughty list 😏


Making A List: Glenmorangie Original 10 Year Scotch Whisky

Santa makes a mean old fashioned with cinnamon on his list-making days… Sounds pretty damn Christmassy to us!


Checking It Twice: Yolo Rum Gold 10 Year

Santa mixes this rum into his eggnog all the time. In his words “Checking it twice also means drinking it twice.” Seems like the Big Man’s got it all figured out.


Finding Out You’re Naughty: Fortaleza Reposado Winter Blend

If Santa’s naughty, there might be some discrepancies in his annual lists… but if you find out you’re naughty and can’t figure out why, just take a shot of the Winter Blend and you’ll be mentally prepared to get some coal in your stocking this year.



Wine: Mrs. Clause’s Afternoon Delight 🍷

Mrs. Clause has her hands full dealing with the sheer debauchery of elves, reindeer, and Santa himself. We all know she’s the one who really runs the show up North, so she deserves a stiff drink now and again… sometimes it’s completely necessary in the afternoon. Here are her go-tos for:


Scolding the Naughty Elves: Apothic Inferno Red Blend

Gotta drink cheaper because this is a daily occurrence.


Correcting Santa’s Grammar: Whitehaven Sauv Blanc $17.99, 750 ml

“C’mon Santa! I before E except after C!”


Taking A Snowblower to the entire North Pole: Cakebread Cellars Cab Sauv

Always good to hydrate after some hard work. #treatyoself
