More Christmas cocktails to try!
Now that we’ve got you in the mood to get merry, here are a few other Christmas cocktails you can shake and stir up this festive season:
Eggnog is the unofficial drink of Christmas, and we love turning it into a super tasty Eggnog Martini. Best of all – you can use store-bought eggnog and nobody will be able to tell the difference. It’s a quick, easy and delicious mixed drink that also works a charm as a batch cocktail to serve a crowd.
Okay, so the Grasshopper might not technically be renowned as a festive drink per se, but its creamy green vibe goes perfectly with holiday decorations, don’t you think? Plus, it’s like a classy milkshake for grownups, with just enough kick to make awkward festive banter a little more tolerable…
A festive twist on the classic amber-hued Italian aperitivo, the Christmas Negroni also features Campari and Cinzano Vermouth Rosso as ingredients. The spin comes in the form of gin that has been infused with cinnamon sticks, anise pods, cloves, black peppercorns, and bay leaves. It takes a little patience to do this bit, but man, oh man, is the pay-off legendary!
The velvety Peppermint Martini is a supremely sip-able dessert in a glass that plops the cherry on top of any Christmas menu. Gorgeously indulgent, it’s a little extra, which is exactly why it’s tailor-made for the holidays!
When to serve the Grinch cocktail
The Grinch Christmas cocktail recipe is quite obviously a Yuletide classic. However, we like to think that it also goes down a treat on other occasions. We like to serve it at:
- Halloween when its green hue makes a ghoulish impression
- St Patrick’s Day when everything is green
- Movie-themed parties (Dr Seuss has gone mainstream, folks!)
And more! Let us know when you whip up this tongue-in-the-cheek drink and remember to tag us in your Grinch cocktail recipe pictures when you share it online!
