The Best Christmas Cocktails – Prize Draw

Christmas and cocktails go hand-in-hand if you ask us. Be it a festive twist on a berry-infused spirit or a creamy liqueur topped with all the trimmings, we’re completely on-board with the rising trend of luxury Christmas cocktails.

With that in mind, we’ve compiled a list of all our favourite boozy beverages for you to try at home. We’ve even added some glitz and glamour to our beverages thanks to the Unicorn Shimmer Co– and you could win a bundle of their amazing products. Cheers, Glossies!

Cranberry Wine Spritzer

As with everything else this time of year, your Christmas cocktails should be indulgent and sweet, starting with this luscious fizzy cranberry spritzer.

To make a large pitcher, you’ll need:

Pour the prosecco, ginger ale and cranberry juice into a large pitcher and stir well. Pour 5ml of cranberry shimmer syrup into individual champagne flutes and top up with the punch. Watch and admire as the shimmery swirls come to life.

Gingerbread Sour

Who doesn’t love a good gin cocktail? Add a Christmassy twist to everyone’s go-to spirit with this dessert-like beverage.

To make five of these Christmas cocktails, you’ll need:

Raspberry Russian

Boozy, creamy and sweet, give this fruity take on a classic cocktail a go.

Christmas cocktails GLOSSYBOX

To make five cocktails, you’ll need:

  • Fresh Raspberries
  • Ice Cubes
  • 150ml of Heavy Cream
  • 150ml of Vodka
  • 150ml of Raspberry Liqueur
  • Red Shimmer Powder

Start by crushing a small handful of raspberries at the bottom of each glass using a wooden spoon. Add the ice then pour the cream, vodka and raspberry liqueur over the ice and stir well. Sprinkle the red shimmer powder over the top for a glitzy flourish.

Insider Tip: Why not create your own raspberry-filled ice cubes? Place a raspberry in each slot of your ice tray and fill the rest up with water. Allow to freeze for at least two hours.

Sparkling Clementine Cocktail

Nothing says Christmas quite like the wonderfully-citrusy smell of a juicy clementine. Traditionally slipped into stockings, we’ve added our satsumas to this delicious tangy drink.

  • 120ml of Vodka
  • 240 ml of Clementine Juice (Orange Juice will also do the trick)
  • 120ml of Prosecco
  • Gold Shimmer Powder
  • Ice

Fill each glass with ice, then pour the vodka, juice and prosecco over the top. Give it a quick stir and watch the sparkles come to life. Lovely!

Winter Wonderland

Reminiscent of a magical and snowy day, these Christmas cocktails are the perfect beverage to get you in the festive spirit.

To make five cocktails, you’ll need:

  • 150ml of Cream of Coconut (not to be confused with Coconut Milk or Coconut Cream)
  • 225ml of Vanilla Vodka
  • 225ml of Crème de Cacao
