I'm having a tacotastic dinner party for my boyfriend's birthday. What's a tasty cocktail/punch recipe that goes with the fresh, rich, spicy flavors of Mexican food?

I'm looking for places in the DC area to enjoy a hot winter drink - hot toddies, spiked egg nog, etc. Any ideas?
Two days ago I made a simple quinoa dish with carrot and zucchini squash. I added copious amounts of brewer's yeast for flavor and nutrional value, and threw it all into a tightly-sealed tupperware container while it was still warm. I then placed it into my backback for later consumption. [more inside]

Over the years, my wife and I have managed to accumulate many bottles of different kinds of alcohol. For the most part, though, we don't drink it, and it's just taking up space. So we're looking for culinary ways to use it. What good recipes do folks have that use stuff like rum, vodka, schnaps, etc.? Wine and beer recipes are welcome, too, although we're mostly trying to get rid of harder stuff. Anything from sauces to marinades to whatever would be great.

Is there a liqueur that tastes like vanilla extract smells?
I've been tasked with providing the wine for a holiday dinner. I know nothing about wine and the dedicated sites are pretty heavily loaded with jargon. [more inside] [more inside]
