Posh Poinsettia

New Years wouldn't be right without a bit of fizz, jazz up your flute with this cocktail full of festive flavour.

25ml De Kuyper Triple Sec

50ml cranberry juice

Top up your flute with prosecco

Hint: garnish with Christmas leftovers: cranberries or oranges, rosemary sprigs or bay leaves.

When Harry Met Sally Sidecar

We can imagine this was their tipple in that classic ending to Norah Ephron's romantic comedy.

50ml Four Roses Bourbon

25ml De Kuyper Triple Sec

Half a lemon, juiced.

A dash of Angostura Orange Bitters

Prep your glass by dipping the rim in some lemon juice, and placing in sugar to frost the glass. Shake in your cocktail shaker with ice until both hands feel cold, and serve straight up with an orange twist garnish.

Hint: chill your coupe glass in the freezer before serving.

Irish Mule

A cosy yet refreshing NYE drink, use up the last of your Christmas Irish whiskey in this warming blend.

50ml Irish whiskey (Bushmills American Oak Cask Finish pairs well here)

Half a lime, juiced

Shake in a cocktail shaker and pour 150ml of ginger beer over crushed ice.

Garnish with a lime wedge and sprig of mint.

Hint: turn your ice cubes into crushed ice by taking a rolling pin to them under a tea towel.

Apple Pie Champagne

Combine your two special occasion drinks to usher in a very special 2023.

25ml Jack Daniel's Tennessee Apple

Top up with champagne (for NYE, it has to be Moet & Chandon)

Garnish will green apple slices.

Hint: leave this one for after you've had a couple, its super simple and is easily layered in the glass.

Happy New Years from all of us at The Whisky Shop!
