Deck the Halls with Cocktails
Christmas doesn’t have to be all about the kids! If you are looking to celebrate the festive season with a few Christmas cocktails, then we can recommend a few drinks that are sure to put you on Santa’s naughty list!
One of the most popular seasonal films of our modern times is Elf, but we’re not sure Buddy would approve of this beverage! Made with lemon juice, milk, guava juice and a fruity liqueur like the X-Rated Fusion Liqueur, this is a smooth, sweet drink that doesn’t quite cover the four main food groups of candy, candy canes, candy corns and syrup!
After a long night delivering presents all around the world, Santa deserves a treat, and what could be better than this chocolate-based cocktail? A creamy blend of Kahlua, milk, dark rum and chocolate chip cookie syrup, we can’t think of a more appropriate way to round off the Christmas festivities.
A classic White Russian might seem like a fairly Christmassy choice on its own, with the creamy texture and high alcohol content, but this variation is sure to be one of your favourites throughout December each year. This drink adds peppermint schnapps to the mix and is garnished with candy canes, so you can indulge your inner child and irresponsible adult sides both at the same time!
Christmas Cake Martini
Did you forget to make this year’s Christmas cake in time? Don’t worry – simply throw together this delicious cocktail variation and all will be forgiven! Made with all the traditional cake ingredients, including cherry brandy, whiskey, almond syrup, cognac and lime juice, with a cherry and cinnamon garnish, this drink might possibly be better than a fruit cake anyway!
Perfect for Christmas get-togethers, this festive punch is sure to warm up any red noses! A variation on the summertime sangria, this drink contains triple sec, orange juice, cranberry juice, sugar syrup, red wine, brown sugar and almond extract, with slices of orange and a few cinnamon sticks for an extra Christmassy taste. Served warm in a punch bowl, it makes a great table centerpiece.
If you are spending any time with friends or family over the festive month as you prepare for the big day, these cocktails are all real party pleasers, sure to impress even the most bah-humbug of family members!
