Not only is Christmas about gift giving and food, it’s also about the alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, especially Christmas cocktails (for me anyway). Cocktail making is a great way to get creative, plus you get to taste and enjoy your own yummy creation afterwards. I’ve collated a selection of recipes for gin Christmas cocktails and also included one of my own little creations.

The wonderful Rachel and Caorunn offered to send me some of their gin so I could have a go at making my own cocktail and try their gin for myself.

Method

Pour 50ml of Caorunn gin into a glass over ice*. Add 1 tbsp of Chambord (black raspberry liqueur). Top with tonic water or lemonade and stir.

*I don’t really like ice, so didn’t use any for my cocktail.
