Jules' top 5 Xmas Cocktails

12 December 2013

Tis the season for celebrating which means lots of parties, catch-ups with friends, family gatherings and client meetings. These usually call for a festive tipple of two...

So in honour, I've picked out my 5 favourite Christmas cocktails, and trust me this was NOT an easy task...

1. First up is the Starry Night served at the Strawberry Moons bar. The cocktail is pretty simple and mixes Smirnoff Blueberry with Rose fizz, certainly beats a plain old glass of champagne.


2. The Hot Spiced Negroni, yes that's a negroni served hot mixed with winter spices that has been keeping revelers warm at Night Tales, the pop-up street food market in Dalston. It's only on until Dec 14th so you best move fast if you want to sample one.


3. Looking for some bling? Then the Gold Fashioned from Abacus bar is the cocktail for you. The concoction of Smirnoff gold and creme de cacao white comes served with a chocolate bar...seriously who doesn't want a choccy bar on the side?


4. Like your Chrimbo cocktails with an Indian twist then Dishoom's naughty eggnog chai is the choice for you. Think of a traditional egg nog mixed with chai spices and rum and you've hit the nail on the head!


5. Punch isn't just for the Caribbean, oh no it's for Christmas too and the Winter Punch at The Last Bar hits the spot, Tanqueray, pressed apple juice and Cinnamon Gomme shaken and served with a Cinnamon stick. Good tidings this will certainly bring...


So get on your glad rags and hit the town, after all Christmas is about giving and if that means giving yourself a festive cocktail or 5 then so be it!
