Christmas is nearly upon us, and it’s time to start getting into the spirits of things (see what we did there?) with some festive gin cocktails!
We’ve come up with some of our festive favourites, and they all have two things in common – gin and indulgence! Christmas is all about over-the-top and over-indulging, and these fabulously festive gin cocktails deliver as reliably as Santa!
Gin and eggnog combine in this decadent treat! It’ll be grandma’s favourite for sure (as well as everyone else’s!)
75ml heavy cream
1 egg yolk
Whisk together the egg yolk and sugar. Gently heat the milk and cinnamon in a saucepan for 5 minutes, before folding in the egg yolk mixture, followed by the remaining ingredients.
Serve warm with a cinnamon stick.
A warming, fruity treat that looks just like the big man’s classic hat!
Dip the rim of a martini glass into water, and then into desiccated coconut to rim the glass. Stir together gin and grenadine with ice, before straining into the prepared martini glass.
A white chocolate ball or strawberry candy cane make the perfect compliment to this sweet drink.
Move over mulled wine, it’s mulled sloe gin’s time to shine!
50ml sloe gin
100ml apple juice
50ml orange juice
Tsp cranberry sauce
Simmer together all ingredients except the gin for several minutes. Strain into a large mug and top with gin.
This cocktail looks best with a heaping helping of garnishes, so pile on the cranberries, orange slices and cinnamon sticks!
This frozen treat will get the whole family walking in the air!
1 egg white
2 tsp sugar
Place all ingredients in a blender and blitz until well combined. Pour/scoop into a glass.
A corn-cob pipe and a button nose. Or make your own snowman face using Christmas candies!
Sweet, spicy and loaded with gin – just how we like it!
15ml gingerbread syrup
Stir all ingredients with ice and strain into a chilled martini glass.
A frosted glass is a must, and balancing a mini gingerbread man on the rim is a sweet way to finish it off!
Wind down after a busy, bustling day of Christmas shopping and socialising with this laid back, soothing classic. Pop on the Elvis classic for the full experience.
35ml blue curacao
15ml dry vermouth
Stir together all ingredients with ice and strain into a chilled coupe glass.
Use a star cookie cutter on an orange slice to make a perfectly festive garnish to float on top!
