Food Jargon of the Day: Make Room for the Beer Cellar

Age-worthy Beers
High-alcohol beers (8% to 15% alcohol) that improve with age. According to the LA Times, examples of age-worthy beers include strong-brewed ales, barley wines, abbey ales, saisons, bières de garde, Christmas ales and Anheuser-Busch's vintage-dated Brew Masters' Private Reserve.

A non-alcoholic cocktail or "mock" cocktail.

Drinking Chocolates
Hot chocolate made with high-end ingredients and definitely not powdered mixes. Also known as European Drinking Chocolates.
