Most of us have a drink or two at Christmas time, whether it be at the works Christmas Do or around the dinner table. We don’t tend to drink that much at home but at Christmas and New Years we like to try different drinks or make cocktails etc.
Here are a few of the different drinks we will be enjoying this festive season:
A Pretty Pink Prosecco – I use Villa Vincenta Prosecco NV from Waitrose to make this drink along with raspberry or strawberry sirop from The Preservation Society and it’s just incredible. You could garnish with a strawberry or raspberry to make it look even more appetising.
Salted Caramel Hot chocolate – I use the Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate from Gu along with Tesco Salted Caramel Liqueur for THE best hot chocolate. Served of course with piles of cream and chocolate shavings. YUM.
After Eight Cocktail – I use Baileys or any supermarket Irish Cream to make this cocktail and add some whole milk, chocolate milkshake powder and peppermint flavouring. You could garnish it with an actual After Eight on the side of the glass or a candy cane.
As well as cocktails and hot chocolate we need wine for the table and to have with cheese and crackers. I’ve got all my wine needs covered with this Festive Box from Waitrose
And the Bin series from Lindemans
After dinner we may indulge in a glass of Cockburns Port:
And we always, always have mulled wine and of course Bucks Fizz! What drinks do you always enjoy over the festive period?
