Inspired by an age-old American recipe, Mother Root’s Ginger Switchel is a delicious, all-natural infusion of pressed ginger juice, blossom honey and organic apple cider vinegar that will excite your tastebuds and leave you feeling revitalised. At least, I was!
Best enjoyed as a pre-dinner aperitif over ice with soda or a light tonic, a slice of orange and a fragrant sprig of rosemary.
No need to worry if you don't have any oranges in your fridge, you can still make your Old Fashioned zing with a spritz of Linden Leaf Cocktail Elements. They are atomisers that spray the natural essences of fresh fruit on your cocktails! Lemon and Lime join Orange in this range, so you're good to go with your gin and tonics as well!
I must admit I am swayed by their gorgeous festive packaging! It's a good thing that Hotel Starlino Maraschino Cherries taste amazing!! They are matured for two weeks in their natural Marasca juice, then rested for another week to achieve their peak flavor. This means they are good for all non-alcoholic cocktails as well!!
I wrote about World of Zing's bottle cocktails in my post on the best canned cocktails that I've tasted! For the holiday, they've made Christmas cocktail baubles to adorn your tree! These are filled with totally new Christmas themed cocktails: Mince Pie Rumhattan, Sloe Gin Bramble, Salted Caramel Espresso Martini, and a Rhubarb Cosmopolitan! So how long do you think they are going to stay on your tree? 😉
Luxury Russian vodka Beluga has released a Lush gift if there ever were one!! Not only does it include a bottle of Beluga Gold Line which is individually numbered and features a cork closure secured by sealing wax, but also an art deco-inspired cocktail shaker! You'll also find a hammer to break the wax and a brush for cleaning it! Time to start shaking those Christmas Cocktails in style.
When my friend Daniyel Jones, the Global Brand Ambassador of Angostura, revealed that they had developed a Cocoa Bitters, I thought Christmas had come early! Not only fab-u-lous in cocktails, it is insane on ice cream, yogurt, and a dash or two on your Christmas pudding!
If you are going to the effort of making gorgeous cocktails, then it's only right that you serve them in gorgeous glasses! I could have every one of the glassware sets that Audrey of Antiquevintagefind has in her collection. I am hoping I find one or more under my tree!
I am a sucker for an embroidered cocktail napkin and I love the ones that are on Food52. These are made by Henry Handwork and are all winter themed . Snow-covered Douglas Fir trees, skiers in red jumpsuits, and Champagne glasses are just a few of the designs to add that XMAS bling to your table!
Yauatcha, the world renowned Chinese dim sum teahouse, has their Festive Macaron Collection, ahead of the festive season. Head Pastry Chef Jolan Thiry and his team have crafted six new macarons inspired by traditional flavours of the season.
Of course, these include some boozy-flavored options! The festive macarons include Mulled wine, Chocolate and peppermint, Gingerbread, Milk and cookie, Spiced cranberry and Espresso.
The Cocktail Hour is a subscription booze club that also creates one-off boxes. Don't miss out on their Winter Wonderland limited edition box, which includes not only cocktails, but sweet treats as well.
