    My favourite Christmas Cocktail is Mulled Wine with an extra shot of brandy to make an extra-special Winter Warmer

  2. Kristin says:

    My favourite Christmas drink is Rachel Allen’s glühwein, it’s the best mulled wine recipe I’ve ever come across and I make several batches every Christmas.

    I go for something warm – heat a glass, add 1/3 boiled water, 1/3 orange cordial or Club orange, a shot to a shot and a half of Captain Morgan (none of your dark rum here) and a splash of lime to top it off. Not sure what to call it, but it smells and tastes great – nice, slow, warm cocktail.

    Same as Ken. I would like to win but don’t actually drink cocktails and have never made one. Which leaves me either copying and pasting or fessing up ;)

  5. Kevin says:

    It’s got to be a Virgin Mary Cocktail for me :)

  6. Neil says:

    gluhwein without a doubt. It just smells like Christmas. We went to the Christmas market in Munich last year. With tempatures of -10c, This helped keep us warm! :-)

  7. Emma says:

    I love anything prosecco based around Christmas but especially Jamie Oliver’s Christmas in a glass! Take some tangerines or mandarins, cut them in half and juice them. Sieve and add mint leaves. Chill, then serve on Christmas morning topped with prosecco.

  8. vanessa says:

    Sangria, served with an extra dash of cinnamon is a lovely warming and refreshing beverage for Christmas Cocktails. Salud!

  9. Sarah says:

    Hmmm, Baileys with some creme de cacao and dark chocolate curls on top. Rich and delicious!

  10. Liana says:

    Baileys with ice, definitely!!

  11. Conor says:

    Quite possibly not a cocktail, but I would have to say a hot whiskey with lemon and cloves and a smidgen of sugar just to take away the slight bitterness!
