STORY
Biltmore Estate in Asheville, N.C., the largest privately owned home in America, celebrates Christmas with some traditions begun when George W. Vanderbilt first welcomed his friends and family to the French Renaissance chateau on Christmas Eve 1895.

This beverage, though, is made from modern ingredients and served at one of the estate's restaurants, Deerpark. It's all part of Biltmore's Christmas festivities that include holiday ensemble music and candlelight Christmas tours of the 8,000-acre, 250-room estate.

So yeah, drink this and you'll feel like a billion bucks. But you might have to stop before you feel like two billion, cause this joker is sweet.
