Party season is very much upon us, office parties have commenced and soon family and friends will be joining up all over to celebrate and toast to Christmas. This is my round up of drinks for Christmas dinners, family parties and New Years Eve glitzy dos.
Starting with the non alcoholic drinks:
J20 have a new range of flavours which are perfectly festive including Midnight Amber (orange, lemon and winter spice) and Midnight Forest (cherry,chocolate and orange):
Echo Falls have an alcohol free sparkling infusion which would be great for guests who don’t want to drink alcohol or are driving yet still want a glass of something sparkly:
James White juices offer something a little different. We love this Lemon Refresher:
QCumber – a cucumber flavoured drink which just happens to go perfectly with Gin.
Moving onto the definitely not suitable for under 18’s drinks..
Starting with Gin. I’ve never managed to get my head around the idea of Gin. It always had an odd sharp almost bitter taste and I really did not enjoy it. It turned out I was drinking the wrong stuff.. Oh and using the wrong mixers because good Gin is really good. Here are two that I rate:
Blue Nun wine would look pretty on a Christmas table:
Drinks that would also make great gifts:
Demijohn is a liquid deli, doesn’t that sound incredible? I tried some of their chocolate rum liqueur which is just a little bit special!
Raisthorpe Manor have a selection of mini bottles which would make great stocking fillers, we love their Toffee Vodka and the Damson Port:
We like to have something with a little fizz and sparkle for our Christmas dinner table and why not??
Asda have fabulous Prosecco and Champagne offers including this Pierre Darcy champagne reduced from £18.00 to just £10.00
Iceland Prosecco is currently just £5 so go grab some before it disappears:
And drinks need to be served with extras at Christmas..luckily Opies have all the accompaniments you need to make your cocktail or drinks extra special from preserved lemon slices to cocktail cherries and gherkins.
