Christmas is just upon us now, so with that in mind I’ve selected are a few Christmas drinks that will take no time at all to put together. And will certainly get you and your guests in the festive mood. For more bevvy inspiration visit The Life of Stuff ‘Bevvy of the Week‘.
Patrick’s Top Christmas Drinks with Recipes
Kir Royal Sparkling Cocktail
1. Kir Royal Sparkling Cocktail
This is a really easy cocktail to put together, and perfect for Christmas drinks.
Just add some Cream de Cassis into a Champagne flute.
Top up with a nice chilled Champagne.
Cassis is a blackcurrant Liqueur, but if blackcurrant isn’t you thing a strawberry liqueur works very well too.
2. Whiskey Sour
Jameson Black Barrel is great for whiskey sours. Into a mixing glass or shaker add:
30ml of lemon juice
One spoonful of sugar
Tablespoon of sparkling water – to help dissolve the sugar
Then add 40ml of whiskey
Handful of ice
Stir well, strain and serve
3. Bucks Fizz
This is a real crowd pleaser and so simple to put together. All you need to make Bucks Fizz is sparkling wine and orange juice. I like to use Prosecco but any sparkling stuff will do. Fill your glass with your sparkling wine of choice and top up with OJ. Simple!
This is an old favourite. All you need is a bottle of Advocaat and white lemonade. Mix half and half, add a bit of ice and that’s it.
5. Chocolate Cream
Pour out a nice glass of Irish cream. Top up with milk and sprinkle on some chocolate powder and since it is Christmas you could even sprinkle a little cinnamon over the top too.
