Tips for hosting a memorable Christmas drinks party
Let's face it, Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without a bit of overindulgence. Traditional Christmas food is usually at the top of everyone’s lists but, when it comes to Christmas drinks, we’re often left with little inspiration. So, we've picked out a few of our favourite Christmas cocktails to ensure your Xmas drinks party goes off without a hitch.
1. Slow-cooker spiced wine
Also called mulled wine, gluhwein or (in French) vin chaud. With a warm sweet scent of cinnamon and cloves, this delicious drink is perfect for warming up your guests at an intimate Christmas drinks party. And, with the option to create the delicious spiced wine in a slow cooker rather than on the stove it’s easy for guests to access refills (and believe in me, there'll be many) from your lovely bartenders.
2. Drivers’ sparkling Christmas punch
Although you might be planning to drink all the mulled wine you can get your hands on that doesn’t mean everyone else is. In a large pitcher or punch bowl simply combine 100g of cranberries, 100ml of cranberry juice, 500ml of blood orange juice, the juice of one lime, mint sprigs, some thin wedges of lime and orange, and 600ml of Appletise (or other sparkling apple drink). The perfect festive non-alcoholic tipple!
3. Hot buttered rum
Everyone loves eggnog during the festive season, but why not re-brand the traditional, and create something a bit more soulful? Mix together rum, brown sugar, melted butter and spices and you've got a delicious mugful of rum-spiked, buttery comfort.
