Food and drink is arguably just as important as the presents when it comes to spreading Christmas cheer. Here are a few delicious easy festive drinks that will take you from Christmas to New year.
Disaronno wears Roberto Cavalli
This is a pretty sexy bottle, and Disaronno wears Roberto Cavalli very well. When I posted the bottle on Instagram, it was suggested by a couple of followers to try Disaronno with cloudy lemonade, and now I can’t get enough. I don’t measure it but go by how strong I want the drink, and adjust accordingly. but there is plenty of ice either way. In the mood for something a little stronger? definitely try the Disaronno Jazzy hour
- ½ part Disaronno
- 1 part Vodka
- ½ part Tangerine liqueur
- 1 part Pineapple juice
- Splash lemon juice
Shake with ice and strain into a martini cocktail glass. Garnish with an orange slice.
Echo Falls Mistletoe Mojito
To help with the party season Echo Falls partnered with one of London’s expert mixologists, Clotilde Lataille, to create five delicious fruit fusion cocktail recipes guaranteed to get everyone in the party mood. The Mistletoe Mojito created with the Echo Falls strawberry and lime was my favourite.
70ml Strawberry & Lime Echo Falls Fruit Fusion
10 mint leaves
Garnish with a sprig of mint and some black pepper
Pour 70ml Strawberry & Lime Echo Falls Fruit Fusion into a julep tin or hi-ball glass, add 5ml lime juice and 5ml sugar syrup. Stir and top with crushed ice. Garnish with a sprig of mint and a sprinkle of black pepper.
Babycham harps back to my childhood. It was the first drink my mother let me sip in my tween years, and the sparkling perry is just as delicious now as it was then. Add a retro vintage glamour to the festivities with the original or newly released sparkling perry with a hint of cream soda, or the sparkling perry with a hint of cherry soda. For some added luxe, add raspberries, then you can eat the soaked fruit.
If you were in the mood for a party classic, which is quick and easy, of course you can’t go wrong with a Funkin Mojito cocktail mixer. Muddle chopped mint, and chopped limes at the bottom of the glass, and most importantly don’t scrimp on the ice. Add your rum, then pour in the Funkin mixer to finish garnish with a lime wedge, and pop in a straw. It is essentially perfect mojitos every time.
