Let’s face it: most Christmas party hosts overheat the mulled wine and burn off the booze anyway. So if you want all the spiced, burgundy goodness, without the let down of not having a buzz buffer during conversation with the boring guy in the ugly Christmas sweater, head to Rain or Shine. Their just-in mulled wine sorbet is like Christmas party in your mouth. And you don’t have to make small talk with what’s his face. Another festive alternative: rum and eggnog ice cream.
