Christmas is all about the food and booze! Obviously Christmas cheer comes into it, but you can’t beat cracking open a bottle with your family or friends and enjoying the festivities. Here we take you through some of the best cocktails you can make at home to add some spice to your Christmas.
1. Gingerbread Latte Martini
This Gingerbread Latte Martini Cocktail Recipe is perfect to make if you have some leftover Christmas gingerbread. If Starbucks threw some booze in their Christmas coffee range, it would a look a little something like this.
If you like an Espresso Martini or Bailey’s then this is certainly the Christmas cocktail for you!
2. Spiced Negroni
A Negroni is an Italian cocktail and is considered an aperitif. It has grown in popularity in recent years. This Spiced Negroni Cocktail Recipe is a twist on the classic, although it still follows the traditional process of making a Negroni, which is equal parts, Gin, Campari & Vermouth and then all stirred together with ice.
3. Christmas Mimosa
The Christmas Mimosa is a simple and perfect cocktail to make at home for the festive Christmas period combining Champagne, Orange and Cranberries.
4. Winter Whisky Sour
The winter whisky sour is a cocktail containing whisky (or bourbon), lemon juice, sugar syrup, and optionally, a dash of egg. In this version we aren’t going to use egg white as it is more for aesthetic’s rather than taste. If you do add egg white the cocktail is sometimes called a Boston Sour.
5. Bailey’s Hot Chocolate
Sometimes life calls for nothing but a hot chocolate alcoholic beverage. A dash of Baileys makes it perfect!
