This is my current favourite – a deceptively drinkable combination of rum, lime juice, ginger beer and cranberry juice, it’s one of those Christmas drinks ideas that it’s quite easy to have perhaps one too many of.

Who doesn’t love a bit of prosecco now and then? If you’re looking to jazz yours up a bit this Christmas make a prosecco negroni – it’s a longer version of the cocktail that mixes bubbles and botanicals.

Mulled cider

This is hands down one of the best Christmas drinks. Mulled cider is really easy to make and is bound to be a crowd pleaser. It’s especially good if you’ve a few people who need a bit of a break from mulled wine after the previous night!

Mulled gin is always a popular option at this time of year – with its subtle spices, gorgeous botanicals and easy going nature, have yours with tonic or warmed with apple juice.
