We certainly wish it could be Christmas every day, so we’ve compiled 5 of our fave festive beverages to get you stumbling through the season. Because after all, it is Christmas!
Our first decadent delight may bring Santa Claus to town, and it’s a berry fruity concoction from @Menagerie_Resturant rightly named ‘Merry Berry Kiss’! Containing raspberries, vanilla and cranberry juice all beautifully topped off with a rosemary garnish, these flavour’s together will certainly warm you up when you’ve got the winter blues. The Menagerie have out done themselves and even have two more gorgeous Christmas cocktails on their menu called ‘Santa Pie’ and ‘Elf Nog’ so head over to their gram to get all the deets!
Next on our list is a peppermint potion created by the babes at @tonightjosephine. ‘Ho Ho Hoe’ is top of our nice list this year, and we certainly want to keep it all to our-elves (sorry, the cringe xmas jokes will be over soon we promise!) It includes Eristoff Vodka, cranberry juice, fresh lemon juice, strawberry jam and grenadine and is finished off with a candy cane to keep you busy after indulging in the sweetie goodness.
Forget Rudolph! We’re going to be the ones with red noses after this next Crimbo cocktail! @sunsetmcr better known as ‘Sunset by Australasia’ have spoilt us with a twist on a classic creating the Mince Pie Margarita! Filled with creamy goodness such as Martell VS Brandy, Baileys, mince meat (weird we know but trust us, it works) and milk. Creating the perfect fireside refreshment, they also have a spiced rosé, so get yourself down there!
Wobbling around the Christmas tree leads us to our next winter warmer by @LondonCocktailClub. It’s one of the recipes from their founder J Goodman’s brand-new book. When we think about festive chocolate, one thing comes to mind, Terry’s chocolate orange, and the London Cocktail Club haven’t disappointed with their chocolate orange mulled wine! This gorgeous beverage is made with, Monkey Shoulder Whisky, Red Wine & orange hot chocolate gently stirred with cinnamon syrup, demerara sugar & orange juice. Now if that isn’t Christmas, we don’t know what is!
To wrap up (get it?) our festive cocktails, we have a lot of Christmas chemis-tree with this one as it’s from an ice bar in London known as @BelowZeroLondon. They’ve created a cocktail called ‘crumble’ containing Absolut Vanilla Vodka, vanilla syrup, apple juice, blackberry purée, fresh blackberry and cinnamon. Sounding so delish its almost chilling!
Whether you’ll be walking in a winter wonder wonderland or roasting chestnuts on a open fire, we know you’ll be equipped with all your festive cocktail knowledge now keeping you a little tipsy the whole season! Enjoy x
