Looking for inspiration for a festive cocktail? Look no further. We’ve asked the industry and its top bartenders to recommend a tipple or two and compiled a list of our favourite Christmas cocktail recipes.

Christmas cocktails

Is there a Christmas cocktail recipe amongst our list for you?

Predominant flavours dominating the festive cocktail suggestions this year are the obvious spices, chocolate and honey, with several traditional recipes featuring time and again. Punches are big this season, with consumers continuing to favour sharing bowls and dishes, while hot drinks also feature highly.

There are a few recipes taking a break from traditional Christmas flavours, including a hot meaty punch, and sunshine-filled tiki cocktail.

Take a flick through our list and see if any take your fancy. If we’ve missed out a particular favourite of yours, leave a comment below.
