3 fabulous Cocktails to enjoy this Christmas

When I was (a lot) younger, I used to work in a bar and used to enjoy this time of year more than any other because people used to order cocktails and I loved making them.

Cocktails then went out of fashion but now it seems they are back with a vengeance and Christmas is the perfect time to learn how to create your own.

So what are the perfect cocktails to try this festive season?


The Snowball cocktail is light and fruity, yet rich and creamy at the same time. Its velvety texture and rich creaminess makes it perfect for this time of year.

Snowball Cocktail

  • ice cubes
  • 40 ml Warninks advocaat*
  • lemonade, to top up
  • juice of 1 lime wedge
  • orange, sliced, to garnish

Simply fill a highball glass with ice, pour in the ingredients and garnish with the orange. For an extra festive touch, stir with a cinnamon stick.

* For an extra alcoholic kick at 10mls of Cognac

Did you know, for a sweet treat this winter, try adding Warninks Advocaat to a warming Hot Chocolate. *adults only*

The Fresh Scicilian

The Fresh Sicilian is the perfect cocktail for every occasion! Made from Solerno, the world’s first blood orange liqueur, it’s bittersweet taste and invigorating aroma brings a welcoming contrast to those dark winter nights.

Fresh Scicilian Cocktail

  • 50ml Solerno
  • 2 lime wedges squeezed 
  • 3 sprigs of mint 
  • Soda or sparkling water 

Pour the Solerno into a stemmed wine glass and top with soda or sparkling water. Add three sprigs of mint to taste and garnish with a slice of orange.

Chambord Bellini

A wonderful combination of Prosecco and Chambord Liqueur create this raspberry flavoured, light, refreshing, delicious and bubbly elegant cocktail.

Chambord Bellini

Pour the Chambord Liqueur into a champagne flute. Hold a teaspoon upside down inside the glass, over the top of the liqueur, and slowly pour in the Prosecco, pulling the spoon up slowly as you go – this will create the pretty two-tone effect. Add in in the frozen raspberries for an extra chill.

What are your favourite cocktails for this time of year?
