We’ve spent the past few weeks collating cocktail recipes, some fancy, some simple but all created to serve during the festive season. In truth we could have just highlighted the wonderful recipes in Victoria Moore’s fabulous book How To Drink at Christmas, it’s got all the ingredients you need for this special time of year…
The handy guide is chock-full of winter warmers, essential drinks for small and large parties and top tips for stocking the drinks cabinet; there are even a few inventive non-alcoholic concoctions for drivers. The pages dedicated to matching traditional Christmas foods to particular wines and spirits will prove invaluable, as will the delicious hot toddies including the Whisky Mac, Applebuie and Hot Buttered Rum created to welcome you and your guests in from the cold.
We have five copies of How To Drink at Christmas to give away. Simply sign up for our newsletter, including ‘Christmas’ after your surname and we’ll aim to get your book to you just before the festivities get started. Or you could just buy a copy – it makes the ideal stocking filler.
