Cocktails - The Perfect Mix

Christmas and New Year are the perfect excuses for a cheeky cocktail or two.

But of course, a cocktail is good at any time of the year; in moderation of course.

Margarita glass

Whether the refreshing flavours of a good Mojito are what you're after, or a colourful Sangria to remind you of summer.

Margarita glasses are also perfect for making the most ordinary dessert look stylish.

Back in the summer I made a Cherry Ice Cream Sundae but for Christmas, you could use these glasses to serve up small slices of Christmas pudding with Brandy Butter; just an idea but I may well have to give it a go!

Happy cocktail making - please drink responsibly.


  1. My favourite in the winter, when I can get one, is a Brandy Alexander. 1 part Fresh cream, 1 part Cognac, 1 part Crème de cacao, sprinkle with nutmeg!

  2. That is beautiful! I'm having fun with the cocktail wheel, what a great idea!

  3. These are gorgeous cocktail glasses or even pudding bowls. My favourite non-alcoholic juice/cocktail is raspberry juice, pineapple juice and grapefruit juice mix.
