The Perfect Christmas Serve

THE PERFECT CHRISTMAS SERVE
Choosing the perfect Christmas serve is too hard a task to narrow down to just one drink. We have created a list of our favourite serves for every part of the Christmas period.
BUCKS FIZZ / BELLINI
Starting with the most essential part of the Christmas period, Christmas morning!
The kids have been up since 4am, wrapping paper is everywhere, and dad is 3 hours into building a toy that says it has a build time of 30 minutes. This is the time to reach for the bubbly.
The perfect morning or brunch tipple and so simple to make.
For Buck’s Fizz simply pour 100ml of orange juice into a flute and top up with 200ml of champagne or prosecco
To create a Bellini, swap out your orange juice for peach pureé
MULLED ROSÉ WINE
Our take on a classic. Perfect for a late-night Christmas tipple on the way to listen to the Christmas eve carols or even keeping you warm on a Christmas morning walk.
Pour a bottle of Rosé wine in a large saucepan, add 1-star anise, a ball of stem ginger, ½ teaspoon of black peppercorns 5 allspice berries, 1\4 pink grapefruit sliced and 2 tablespoons of crème de cassis. Bring to a simmer over a medium heat. Strain into a jug and serve.
Advocaat is the Michael Bublé of drinks, hidden 11 months of the year only to pop out at Christmas like it never been away.
Simple but satisfying, the snowball is a great all-rounder, perfect for Christmas meals and parties this easy to make drinks is perfect to pull out for any occasion.
Fill your highball glass with ice, pour 50ml Advocaat and top up with lemonade.
Don’t forget to be classy and garnish with a cherry.
YOUR VERY OWN CHRISTMAS GIN
Why not create your own spirit of Christmas and have it ready for an occasion over the festive period?
All you need to make your very own Christmas gin is a bottle of vodka, 2 tablespoons of juniper berries, a strip of orange peel, 4 cloves and 1 cinnamon stick.
Open the bottle of vodka, add your juniper berries, orange peel, cloves and cinnamon put the lid back on, shake and leave for 24 hours in a cool dark place.
Strain your newly created gin into a clean bottle, and you’re ready for any unannounced guests.
