One of the biggest parts of Christmas (apart from the food) is the booze! Going to a local liquor shop and mixing alcohol are part of many families’ tradition. Whether it’s sipping on eggnog, brandy or choosing your favorite bottle from your wine cases, everyone loves a festive drink. So how about a few Christmas cocktails to spice things up a bit? This martini is so simple to make but looks and tastes fantastic! Give it a go and impress your friends and family on Christmas Day.
We love cocktails and always have them whenever we go out. Dean’s favourite is a French Martini and mine is a Bellini. We actually made the Christmas martini last year for my family and it went down a storm.
Dean has always been into the idea of cocktail making so I bought him a mixologists set a few Christmases ago. You don’t have to have one to make this drink but it helps to get that authentic taste – plus it provides a bit of entertainment when everyone has a go! Just make sure the lid is firmly on as you don’t want to be cleaning cranberry juice out of the carpet!
When making the cocktails for the blog we had our friends Tristan and Gemma round to be our taste testers! They enjoyed the cocktails very much 😄
