The holidays are quickly approaching and what better way to get into the spirit by trying a mystery holiday drink made with random ingredients we found around the office.

We call it Santa's Piss.

Jon and I concocted this mystery punch, but our unsuspecting coworkers had no idea what was in it.

Here are their ridiculous (and some surprising) reactions.

First up was Chelsea...

“What is that, noooooo!"

“I really want to spit it out."

"It tastes sour." After a second sip she said, "I still don’t like it, but it’s not as gross on the second sip."

Next was Bryant...

"It's not bad, but, I wouldn’t like order it. But, I’d drink it, if it’s free."

Then it was James' turn.

“It smells like bananas...and like bourbon or something.”

"Is it, banana with seltzer water, and bourbon?"

"Ew, ok.”

Next was Sarah.

"It's actually really good...but a little fizzy which is weird?"

"I would feel better if I knew what was in it."

Then it was Alex's turn to take the plunge.

"You know what, I like it. I think it tastes good."

So even though I made the "Santa's Piss", I still didn't know what it tasted like. We paused, and I decided to try it out.

One thing's for sure, it definitely smelled weird...

Jon tasted it and was NOT into it.

"Ughh, WTF did I just make...It's the Worst."

We resumed and Michelle was next.

After Michelle got over the initial first sip, here's what she had to say, "It's not bad, actually, it’s pretty good. It's very acidic, 'applely', it tastes like its kinda carbonated."

"I don’t know, I don’t mind it."

David stopped by for a taste and he was very... skeptical.

"No comment."

Julia seemed optimistic about the mystery drink... But, she had never tasted Egg Nog before...

But after a whiff she said, "Oh god, I hate it already."

“Oh. It’s not bad," she said after taking a little sip. "I think because it's primarily rum it's OK. But i don’t understand what nog is. I don’t like that, I don’t understand that."

Tanner jumped right into it and took a full chug.

“It’s a disgusting color."

After that first chug, Tanner wasn't feeling the drink, “Oh God, oh God, it taste like medicine."

"Like its got a real medicine ~wang~ to it. It’s tingling, in a weird way like it has alka seltzer in it."

Dave stepped up and decided to waft the drink first to get a feel for it.

The first thing he noticed, "it smells like banana... OK, I’m gonna take a big sip."

"Does it have Nyquil in it," he asked. "It literally taste like red Nyquil."

"It doesn’t taste good that’s for sure."

Sylvia was very excited to try the cocktail.

“You know what, it's not bad, it’s really not bad,” she said.

"If you wanted it to be bad maybe you should have put more weird stuff in it," she said after she found out what was in the drink.

Kiebs was the last of the group to try our cocktail...he just went right for it.

After his first swig he smiled and said, "It’s not bad. It tastes kind of like, chocolate milk with booze in it. Or like, a melted ice cream, kinda."

* 1 oz. Serpent's Bite Apple Cider Whiskey

* 2 oz. Southern Comfort flavored Egg Nog

* A splash of Guinness Stout

Shake with ice and pour into a glass. 🎄
