If you live somewhere where the snow doesn’t fall, then here’s something you can do to stop the kids from clamoring for a white Christmas (because you can’t give that to them anyway, not unless you buy fake snow by the truckload): a holiday bonfire. There’s nothing like roasting marshmallows and drinking steaming cups of hot cocoa in the great outdoors, singing Christmas carols and handing out homemade eggnog to whoever wants a glass.
There are also extra treats for the adults who might otherwise prefer to stay indoors: fluffy booze-infused marshmallows that can get you toasted on the sly. Take extra care to keep them out of reach of children for obvious reasons (and also because nobody really wants to clean up vomit from the carpet on Christmas day.)
They’re available in two flavors: Maker’s Mark and Guinness. You can get your fill from Wondermade, who sells these marshmallows in boxes of 16 for $7.50.
