Richard's At-Home Christmas Cocktails 2020

December 11, 2020

This Christmas we're spending more time at home than we would normally, but that doesn't mean you can't enjoy some mixologist-worthy cocktails! Rival even the best bar experiences by making some of Richard's favourite at-home Christmas Cocktails:

1. Negroni

If there’s one thing I could probably make with my eyes closed it’s a Negroni. With equal parts London Dry Gin, Campari and Vermouth, it’s the one of the easiest and tastiest cocktails to whip up to impress. Simply add the ingredients together in a cocktail shaker, and strain over some cracked ice in a Double Old Fashioned tumbler before garnishing with a simple orange peel.

2. Whisky Highball

Is there anything more warming on a cold, winter’s evening than a whisky? No, we don't think so either. If starting the evening with a neat whisky seems a little full-on for you, too, then simply top it up with some soda water and some ice, to the brim of your highball. It absolutely must be served in a tall, beautiful glass, with an aromatic citrus twist, to really make the whisky pop.

3. Affogato Amaretto

Perhaps not technically a cocktail, but it’s certainly a digestif I can get behind. Spruce up your regular Affogato with a couple of shots of Amaretto mixed in with your bath of hot espresso, poured beautifully over some equally indulgent vanilla ice cream. Serve in a Coupe that does this heavenly digestif justice.

4. Pink Gin

As soon as the cooler months arrive, I swap out my traditional G&T for a more warming, pink gin. Whilst it’s still as refreshing as its summer counterpart, the addition of Angostura bitters works wonders to give it an extra oomph of flavour. Serve in your Tumbler of choice.
