Grab yourself a cinnamon stick, some cranberry juice and a few candy canes and you have the ingredients for some great holiday cocktails. In fact, any holiday party will be made more festive by making one of these easy Christmas cocktails.
For the best Christmas cocktails this holiday season, I suggest having on hand some traditional ingredients such as apple cider, red wine, dark rum, orange liqueur, as well as brown sugar, egg yolks, lemon juice and simple syrup.
One of these Christmas drinks is sure to raise your holiday spirits! These are a mix of cold and hot cocktails!
This Christmas, visitors can enjoy a rich and complexly spiced cocktail at the intimate St James Bar, which is tucked away within the grand Sofitel London St James. Guests will be able to indulge in a wonderfully balanced festive tipple, enchanted with notes of sweet cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves as well as subtle hints of dark, earthy chocolate aromas which accentuate a naturally barky finish.
Award-winning Belfast-based mixologist Emily Doherty' inspiration behind this drink is the iconic golden star on the Gelston’s bottle. And with the festive season fast approaching, she created this drink to enjoy on a cold winter day.
She explains: “Samuel Gelston's Irish Cream Liqueur is a warm hug in a glass, it’s smooth, creamy and sweet, and perfect with hot coffee and spiced brown sugar syrup.”
