FABULOUS FESTIVE COCKTAILS WITH EVERYDAY KITCHEN ESSENTIALS

Wednesday, December 15, 2021

With the festive season fast approaching and merriment on our minds, we teamed up with The Cocktail Service to craft a selection of Christmas tipples which are not only spectacular to look at, but are quick and easy to make with everyday ingredients you’ll find at home in the kitchen.

Rum & Honey Old Fashioned

The Old Fashioned is aptly named – it’s one of the oldest cocktail recipes around. This twist on the recipe switches whisky for a delicious blend of Aged Caribbean rums, providing a fiery and warming mouthfeel, sweetened by the addition of honey.

Ingredients:

Duppy Share Rum 50ml

 Orange Bitters 2 drops

Tiptree Honey half jar

Method:

Stir the ingredients together in a rocks glass and finish with cubed ice an orange twist.

Espresso Martini

A modern classic created in London in the 1980s, this recipe is an elegant serve, perfect for a late-afternoon pick-me-up.

Ingredients:

Vodka 25ml

Coffee Liqueur 35ml

Espresso 50ml

 Sugar Syrup 5ml

Method:

Shake and strain into a couple glass and finish with three coffee beans.

Appliance:

Siemens coffee centre.

Orange Moscow Mule

The addition of orange marmalade to the classic Moscow Mule recipe creates a luxurious and comforting experience, livened up with fiery ginger ale.

Ingredients:

Vodka 50ml

Orange Marmalade half jar

Lime Juice 15ml

Fever Tree Ginger Ale 100ml

Orange Bitters 2 drops

Method:

Add to a mixing glass, churn and build (stir down with ice to control the level of dilution), then pour into a hi-ball glass with cubed ice, an orange slice and lime wedge.

Apple and Cinnamon Martini

There’s nothing quite like cinnamon to brighten up a recipe during the cold and dark winter months. It combines delightfully with the apple flavours, with the gin balancing the sweetness from the syrup.

Ingredients:

Warners Gin 50ml

Cloudy Apple Juice 50ml

Cinnamon Syrup 10ml

Method:

Shake and strain into a couple glass and garnish with an apple fan.

Mulled Wine

The ultimate Christmas beverage, mulled wine is said to date back as far as the Roman Empire.

It’s safe to say the drink has evolved since then, with something resembling the drink we know today appearing in in “Mrs Beeton’s Book of Household Management”, published in 1861.

Taking the time to infuse your syrup with the orange, cinnamon, and lemon means you’ll pack your mulled wine with as much flavour as possible.

Ingredients:

Red Wine 150ml

Hennessy V.S 15ml

Christmas Syrup 20ml

Orange Zest 3 zests

Christmas Syrup:

Infuse sugar syrup with Orange Zest, Cardamom, Lemon Zest, Cinnamon, Star Anise and Currants.

Method:
Stir the ingredients together on the hob, bring to the boil then simmer. Serve in a hot toddy glass with orange peel, cloves and a cinema stick.

Tip: keep your mulled wine bubbling safely for hours using an induction hub on a low level which gives you far greater control.

Appliance:
Siemens induction hob

Above all, we hope you enjoy a very, merry Christmas however you celebrate it.
