Christmas Cocktails

Christmas is a great time to entertain with family and friends and what better way to kick off the festive spirit than a Christmas cocktail (or two)!

These simple cocktails add a sense of occasion to any event and will take you through the holiday season in style.


Holiday Cocktail

  • Champagne
  • Cranberry Juice
  • Raspberries
  • Mint Leaves

The colours create the perfect festive cocktail. Grab your favourite bubbles, a pretty glass and add the other ingredients and enjoy!


Christmas Mojito

  • 10 fresh mint leaves
  • 1/2 lime, cut into 4 wedges
  • 2 tablespoons caster sugar
  • 1 cup ice cubes
  • 45ml white rum
  • 125ml soda water
  • Cranberry juice
  • Cranberries

Mojito's are a refreshing drink on a hot summers day. Place mint leaves and 1 lime wedge into a glass and use a muddler to crush the mint and lime to release the mint oils and lime juice. Add 2 more lime wedges and the sugar, and muddle again. Do not strain the mixture. Fill the glass almost to the top with ice. Pour the rum over the ice and fill the glass with soda water. Garnish with the remaining lime wedge. Add a splash of Cranberry juice and cranberries for a festive twist.


Espresso Martini

  • 30 ml vodka
  • 30 ml kahlua
  • 30 ml espresso
  • coffee beans to garnish

Now, not typically Christmassy, but we just love them! Simply pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice, shake until chilled, and then strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Top with a few coffee beans and serve!
