If there’s one time of the year we all enjoy drinking something a little special, it’s Christmas. Whether you like a boozy tipple, or you’re after something non-alcoholic but still festive; I’ve pulled together a list of seasonal suggestions for Christmas drinks and there really is something for all the family to enjoy.
Alcoholic Christmas Drinks
From Snowballs with Grandma, fizz with friends and mulled wine round the fire; bring some Christmas cheer with this selection of boozy favourites.
Mix things up with some deliciously warming Mulled Apple Cider from Daisies and Pie. Mulled cider makes a real change from mulled wine; lighter, sweeter and you can swap the cider for apple juice if you’re mulling for the whole family.
This Christmas Hot Punch from Susan Earlam is full of festive flavours, including cranberry, amaretto and spices. It’s a delicious sounding drink, perfect to drink in front of the fire.
If you want to jazz up a simple glass of festive fizz, we’ve been trying Pop A Ball which are little tubs of bursting bubbles and drink shimmers which you spoon into your fizz. Pop A Ball products are suitable for vegans, vegetarians and coeliacs. They are also are also free from dairy, nuts, eggs and soya.
Non-Alcoholic Christmas Drinks
I’ve got lots of friends who don’t drink alcohol, but why should they miss out on Christmas drinks? I always think it’s nice to make something the whole family can enjoy too. Here are some suggestions for non-alcoholic Christmas drinks for all the family.
After a chilly day riding a sledge, or taking the dog on a winter walk, nothing warms you up like a nice steaming mug of hot chocolate, Daisies and Pie has created this delicious sounding recipe for Peanut butter hot chocolate, just the thing for peanut butter nuts like me!
For mulled wine fans who are cutting down on their intake, this Vimto Mulled Wine recipe is a great way to still enjoy all the seasonal spices of mulled wine, but swerving the alcohol content. It’s also delicious because it’s based on Vimto.
