The Twelve Cocktails of Christmas: Spiked Cinnamon Apple Cider and Christmas Memories with Megan Ruger

The Twelve Cocktails of Christmas: Spiked Cinnamon Apple Cider and Christmas Memories with Megan Ruger

What’s your favorite Christmas memory?

One year when I was around 6 years old, my family and I were sprinkling “special reindeer food” all up and down our street for Santa’s reindeer to eat. When we came back to the house, there were sleigh marks in the snow, the back door was wide open, and there was a note on our kitchen table saying…”sorry I had to use the back door because there was a fire in the fireplace” – Santa.  I was just getting to the age where I was becoming skeptical of Santa, so my parents were determined to still make me believe.  And I did!!! I cried so much when I saw all of the things that had proven that Santa had been there. Especially the half eaten cookies and empty glass of milk that I had left out for him.  My parents rock! 

What’s your idea of a good Christmas Dinner?

Lots of laughs, card games, and my mom’s homemade mashed potatoes!!!

Do you have a favorite Christmas album?

I love Brenda Lee’s Christmas Collection. 

Do you have any favorite traditions or favorite movies for the holiday season?

Yes, for the past four years or so, my family and I started a tradition of going to the movies on Christmas.  It’s been a blast watching new Christmas movies on Christmas day!!! 

Whats been your favorite album of 2016?

SIXX:AM “Prayers for the Damned” I’m a rocker and a big fan of Nikki Sixx! 

What are your hopes for 2017? Any exciting plans?

I plan on touring a lot and I am hoping to have a tour bus and driver this year!!! Instead of the sprinter van and me as the driver. Lol, I’m a great driver, but I’m ready to hand over the reigns to someone else and to move my career to the next level as a recording artist.

Signature cocktail? 

I love Apple Cider ! So…maybe some Captain Morgan and Apple Cider.
