It looks like more and more of us are going to be enjoying a merry ‘little’ Christmas this year in our own homes. Get cosy, put on some of your favourite festive tunes and treat yourself to some Christmas Cocktails Sloemo style. We’ve come up with 4 easy Christmas Cocktails;
We think this is top of the tree and one that can be enjoyed on Christmas morning.
Put 25ml Sloe Gin in the bottom of a champagne flute or coupe, top up with Champagne or Prosecco.
In a pan, gently heat (don’t boil) 1.5l cloudy apple juice, add 2 cinnamon sticks, 6 whole cloves, 6 whole allspice berries*, peel of an orange cut into strips, peel of a lemon cut into strips and 50ml Bramble Whisky.
*use a selection of spices that you may have at home
You could make a batch without the alcohol for the children.
HEDGEROW BLOODY MARY
Perfect for Boxing Day!
Pour 50ml Hedgerow Botanical Vodka into a tumbler, add 200ml premium tomato juice (we like Big Tom very much). Add a couple of shakes of Worcestershire Sauce (Henderson’s relish is Vegan option), a couple of shakes of Tabasco, a pinch of black pepper and a pinch of celery salt – add juice of half a lemon for tangy twist. Stir all the ingredients together with ice then serve garnished with a fresh slice of lemon and a stick of celery.
It’s got to be a bit of fizz for New Year – and more so this year to see off 2020 and toast in 2021.
Put 50ml Hedgerow Gin into a coupe or martini glass, add a splash of fresh clementine juice (juice of 2-3 clementines), top up with Champagne. Sprinkle with edible glitter for a bit of New Year sparkle!
