Getting ready for Christmas

Christmas Drinks Party

In this age of austerity.  Many will have  to cut back a little and what better way of celebrating the festive season is with a drinks and nibble party.  By offering your guests nibbles and drinks you can cut back on the expenditure and still have fun.  If you got ahead in October and made your own Sloe Gin or Blackberry Vodka these will now be ready to use.  If not, here are some great ideas for that party you are planning next week.  We have put together some of our favourite drink recipes which are so easy to make and taste really great!

Make your party sparkle

Sea Breeze (The Christmas classic from the USA) Makes 6 portions

1 Slice of Lemon and lime

370 mls of pink grapefruit juice

1 Litre of Cranberry juice

In each glass, place an ice-cube ,one sixth of vodka, one sixth of the grapefruit juice then add one sixth of the cranberry juice this gradually blends together and looks lovely.  Add your citrus slices and serve.

Sloe gin Champagne

Using your home-made Sloe gin (or bought bottle)  put a small amount into Champagne glasses and top each glass up with good Champagne.
