Christmas Came Early!

Let’s get creative this Christmas, and what better way than to put the spirit in Christmas spirit!

Christmas cocktails are a great way to get the party started so our AA Rosette awarded Silks Bistro’s mixologist decided to concoct a few to help you celebrate in style!

 

Just mulled that one over

Warm the soul with this traditional twist of Christmas!

 

What you’ll need is:

 

  • Mulled wine
  • muscovado sugar
  • Cointreau
  • Cinnamon
  • Clementine juice
  • Lemon juice
  • Dried Clementine segments

 

Pour a glass or two of delicious mulled wine (warm or cold) with a sprinkle of cinnamon, muscovado sugar & Cointreau. Then add a little squeeze of clementine orange and lemon juice. To finish, top with a dried clementine.

 

 

Christmas kick

 

Now not everyone can be a cocktail connoisseur and a quick spin on things is always handy.

Take your classic espresso martini and add a cinnamon sprinkle! Simple!

 

What you’ll need is:

 

  • 50 ml Vodka
  • Ice
  • 50 ml brewed espresso coffee
  • 50 ml coffee liqueur (we used Kahlua)
  • Sprinkle of cinnamon
  • Tablespoon of sugar syrup

Chill your martini glass, while you make your delicious cocktail. Brew your espresso and add a sprinkle of cinnamon. Add plenty of ice to your shaker, add your vodka, sugar syrup, cinnamon-infused espresso and coffee liqueur.

Now, to make the best espresso martini, a little extra shake is required. In order to create a smooth crema on your martini, shake the shaker a few more seconds than you usually would with another cocktail. This ensures the cocktail separates into smooth but distinct layers.

Dust with cinnamon and add a few espresso beans to decorate. If you prefer, substitute cinnamon for chocolate. A sprinkle of choco instead of cinnamon works just as well. Why not add chocolate sauce to the inside of the glass!

You are a cocktail connoisseur now!

Blitzen’s Cranberry Spritzer

 

Making drinks for the family may mean a pitcher or two for a quick top up as your guests arrive. This recipe makes four so double or reduce if needed.

What you will need:

 

  • Prosecco
  • Sprig or two of Rosemary
  • 200 ml Cranberry Juice

 

Put the cranberry juice in a small saucepan with a sprig of rosemary. Bring to the boil and reduce for a few mins until syrupy. Leave to cool, then chill until ready to use.

Fill your champagne flutes with Prosecco about four fifths of the way. Top up with your homemade syrup and watch it infuse like magic!

Just a few delicious drinks to get you in the party spirit this December.
