Christmas is most definitely a time to dust off your fanciest glasses and glace cherries and work some cocktail magic. But with these crackers, you don’t need to lift a finger… or shaker, because frankly, you’ve got enough to do already. These cocktails come freshly mixed by a pro mixologist and arrive through your letterbox. Which leaves you to deck the halls and don the glitter. Chink chink to that.
Family Christmas Party
The gang is back together and the celebration is ON! Start the proceedings with this classy little number, a Winter Spiced Negroni – the classic Italian aperitif. Talk about adding festive cheer, with its warming, rich spiced winter flavours. This drink is boozy enough to turn even Santa’s nose red. So switch the festoon lights on, light a few candles, sit back and dream of a white Christmas while the kids create havoc with a classic game of charades.
New Year’s Eve Party
It might have been a while since you’ve partied like it’s 1999, so play the long game with this spiced long drink, the Orange and Cranberry Spritz. It’s light and fruity but not overly saccharine, with a slight bittersweet tang from the cranberry syrup. And whether you go for a party photo booth or disco backdrop with this fab gold star curtain, you’ll be rocking it in this epic gold sequin skirt (it’s even from an indie Oxon boutique!).
If you’re one of the many urban escapees who’s found your gorgeous rural bolthole in recent months, welcome! And here’s a tip for your festive house warming party – give your guests a glass of this warming Mulled Wine Hi-Ball and they’ll instantly feel welcome (and a teeny bit sozzled).
The Kocktail version is served on ice and includes a splash of rich and sweet sloe gin and a few drops of orange bitters for that perfect balance. This pomegranate candle will complete the ambience and we adore these small decorative plates for a party buffet with style.
Date night in
The Kocktail version of Dick Bradsell’s classic Espresso Martini has the perfect festive twist… introducing the Gingerbread Espresso Martini. It’s genius – a comforting slow sipping little number that’s perfect before or after dinner a deux. Or to pep up your candle-making session – we love this cheeky little kit that has everything you need to make the pot and pour the wax. Round off with this box of posh chocs – there’s two of (nearly) every one.
