Christmas Cocktail Guide
Poached Pear Fizz
25ml of your favourite gin, we love Glaswegin.
Stir and top up the glass with prosecco.
Garnish with pear and a cinnamon stick.
Hint: Any old prosecco will do, the real star here is that Poached Pear Liqueur.
50ml Maker's Mark
1-2 dashes of Angostura bitters
1 tbsp Cranberry Compote
Add caster sugar if needed, to taste.
Stir well and garnish with a fresh orange peel twist.
Hint: To be extra fancy, trace the peel along the rim of the glass for a more fragrant drink.
Gingerbread White Russian
50ml of ginger infused vodka
Top up with cream.
Hint: Crush up some ginger biscuits, dip the rim in some cream and then into the crumbs for a stylish rim.
Posh Hot Toddy
50ml Dunvilles 1808
2 tsp brown sugar
Half a cinnamon stick
15ml lemon juice
Four cloves, studded to orange slice
Top up with boiling water.
Hint: Dunville's is a perfect base for this drink, as it adds a whisp of smoke.
Winter Spice Irish Coffee
1 tsp Brown Sugar (alternatively, a homemade brown sugar syrup works best)
Top up with freshly brewed coffee.
2 tbsp double cream, slightly whipped with 5-10ml of brandy.
Use the back of a spoon to layer the cream on top, and add a pinch of mixed spice to garnish.
Hint: For the ultimate Irish coffee, replace the brown sugar with sweet PX sherry. Extra boozy!
