Our New Book!

8th January 2024

To our friends, followers and fellow mixologists,

From an idea (perhaps even a frustration!) 10 years ago, Make Me A Cocktail has been the true meaning of labour of love, growing in to a vast, worldwide and inclusive community of cocktail enthusiasts, channelling their creativity or looking for inspiration. We are truly proud to have shaken, stirred and served you all these years.

We wanted to take it one step further and produce a permanent piece of cocktail inspiration in your home. We wanted to create something for you, your family, friends and perhaps even work colleagues that makes not only a special gift for you to give. 

Make Me A Cocktail At Christmas is the first recipe book from makemeacocktail.com, to keep in your home and brought out year on year to make sure your Christmas gatherings and events have that little bit of festive magic. We have tried, tasted and selected the most festive cocktails; from festive Mince Pie Martinis and twists on classics like the White Russian Christmas for you to make at home, making sure there is something for all your friends and family at any time over Christmas!

As soon as it is available to purchase through Amazon we will make sure you, the Make Me A Cocktail community, will be the first to know. 

Merry Christmas,

Bartender's top tip

Ice plays a crucial role in cocktails, not just for chilling but also for dilution, which can help meld flavors together smoothly. Use large, clear ice cubes or spheres for spirits-forward drinks like Old Fashioneds, as they melt slower and dilute the drink less. For more refreshing, highball-style drinks, ensure your ice is fresh and plentiful to keep the drink cold and vibrant.
