Tis the season to be jolly, eat too much and share drinks with friends...

Get into the Christmas spirit this year with some of our favourite festive cocktails...

Candy Cane Martini
2 x Peppermint candy canes
12.5ml Peppermint schnapps
25ml Crème de cacao (white)
25ml Vanilla vodka

Crush one candy cane using a rolling pin, dip the edge of your martini glass in a shallow dish of water and then into the crushed candy.
Shake ingredients hard with ice and double strain into a martini glass.
Hook second candy cane onto side of glass.

Just looking at that candy cane garnish makes us feel Christmassy inside. If this recipe seems a little strong you can always top with a dash of soda or tonic water.

50ml Advocat
12.5ml Lime Cordial

The classic 80's snowball; shake Advocat with lime cordial and ice, strain over a fresh hi ball glass of ice and top with lemonade. Garnish with a slice of lime. Easy peasy! Now who's up for a cheese fondant and a game of Trivial Pursuit? 

Brandy Alexander
37.5ml Brandy
25ml Crème de cacao (dark)
Half and half (1/2 milk & ½ cream)
Nutmeg for dusting on top

This cocktail is delicious served hot or cold. Shake with ice for frappe style or if you like it hot (our favourite), pour brandy and crème de cacao into the bottom of a latte glass, top with steamed milk or half and half and dust with nutmeg.


Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
