With September now drawing into a close, many of us with start to think about Christmas. While still a few months away, the excitement of the upcoming festivities can often take its toll. This is especially the case at Urban Spirit, with our Mixology team already coming us with Christmas drink ideas to showcase at Christmas events.

So, if you are struggling with ideas for a festive-centered event, below are a few ideas and tips to think about.

Cinnamon-infused drinks

Nothing screams Christmas more than cinnamon; a spice that is aromatic and incredibly flavoursome. As a central ingredient in many scrumptious drinks, below are just a few you can use a touch of cinnamon in to give it a Christmassy feel:

  • Hot Toddy with Cinnamon
  • Old Fashioned with Apply and Cinnamon
  • Manhattan Cocktail with a Cinnamon kick
  • Sparkling wine, Ginger Liqueur and Cinnamon

So, if you are feeling short of Christmas spirit, give any of the above a try!

Sherry

Now, no Christmas celebration is complete without a Sherry. While thought to be a bit of an old lady drink, Millennial drinkers are slowly but surely bringing the spirit back. Below is a Sherry cocktail recipe that we at Urban Spirit just love. Called the Sherry Splash, this drink is on-trend and more importantly; easy to make!

To make the drink you will need to add the following together:

  • 1 ounces sherry
  • 1/2 ounce gin
  • 1/2 ounce elderflower liqueur
  • Ice
  • Lemon twist, for serving

Baileys

Here we have another iconic Christmas tipple. Being creamy, boozy and versatile; what isn’t there to like about Baileys? But, did you know that you could serve Baileys a part of a cocktail?

Here is our favourite variation; the Flat White Martini.

To create this Wintery Wonder, shake the following ingredients together and pour into a chilled Martini glass:

  • 50ml Baileys Original Irish Cream
  • 25ml Smirnoff Vodka
  • 25ml Espresso
  • Ice cubes
