What holiday drink would be the best for an older crowd?

My husband and I are having family over for thanksgiving, and I wanted to spice things up with a sophisticated drink and hopefully get them to loosen up. What would be the best drink to serve? Thank you for your advise.

    Mulled wine or cider

    For wine add orange zest, cloves, nutmeg, a cinnamon stick & a small amount of sugar to red wine and heat gently – do not boil

    To cider use a flat, traditional cider, add an apple studded with cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon stick, maybe some star anise – again heat but do not boil.

    For both of the above you can experiment with the spices, or cheat and buy a mulling syrup.
