Holiday-oriented drinks are not a new phenomenon. Eggnog has roots that trace back to Medieval times. But with the recent trend toward menus that evolve with the seasons, wintry beverages are more popular than ever in the Annapolis area.

The Annapolis restaurant and pub imports its creamy liquor, bottled just for them, from a company in County Cavan, Ireland. It arrives sometime in October. Last year, thanks to its massive popularity, it didn’t even make it through December. People go crazy for it, says Galway Bay General Manager Sean Lynch.
