Christmas Cocktails 2022
Who doesn't love a cocktail? And there's no better time than Christmas to sit back and enjoy one!
What is the most popular drink at Christmas?
All of us like a drink at Christmas, be it mulled wine or cider or port with an array of cheeses, but the most popular one at Christmas is Eggnog, known as the drink of Christmas. It's traditionally made with milk, cream, sugar, whipped egg whites and egg yolks, which unsurprisingly is where it gets its name. A particularly popular drink because of its warm temperature and addition of flavours like cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla that represent the festive season!
Christmas Gin Cocktails & more recipes
In keeping with the spirit of Eggnog, you can try out this Christmas Gin cocktail recipe! You'll need gin, lemon juice, orange juice, Campari, sugar, egg white, nutmeg and orange peel to finish! All you need to do is put everything (except nutmeg and orange peel) into a cocktail shaker, give it a good mix, strain it into a glass and top it off with nutmeg and orange peel, and there's your gin equivalent of Eggnog!
Hot Toddy & more warm Christmas drinks
Hot Toddy is a classic warm drink, not just for Christmas! It's made from hot water, whiskey, honey and lemon. It differs from your usual mulled wine as it's lighter and refreshing rather than very sweet! But don't forget the classic mulled wine you can sip on at Christmas Markets as well as the delicious hot cider! And if alcohol isn't your thing, have a warming hot chocolate with marshmallows!
