Holiday Cocktails For Everyone On Your Guest List

Holiday Cocktails For Everyone On Your Guest List

Planning a holiday party can be incredibly stressful, especially when it comes to selecting what drinks to serve to guests, each with varying taste. Here is a list of drinks that are perfect to please everyone on your guest list:

The Whiskey Connoisseur

Keep this one simple, serve a delicious whiskey neat and give guests the option of adding ice or water. The trick with this is to serve a high quality whiskey that people want to sip. I recommend Egan’s Irish Whiskey for its Amber like color, delicate aroma and malty and creamy taste, with complex hints of cereal and a smooth silkiness, Egan’s is guaranteed to please even your pickiest guest.

The Classy Socialite

For those on your list that will keep the party going long into the night, serve them the Midnight Zest. The tantalizing, elegant and intriguing blend of botanicals and notes of blueberry and blackberry in Brockmans Gin shine when mixed with fresh lemon juice, simple syrup and topped with champagne, making it the perfect companion to turn your holiday party into a night like no other.

Midnight Zest

50ml Brockmans Gin

25ml Freshly squeezed lemon juice

15ml Sugar syrup (created by mixing equal parts sugar and water until completely dissolved. Speed the process with hot water and then cool the syrup

Top with Champagne, Prosecco or good quality English sparkling wine

Shake the gin, lemon juice and sugar syrup with cubed ice. Strain into a champagne flute and top with the sparkling wine. Garnish with a twist of lemon zest.

 

The Wino

It can be very tricky to please the wine lovers on your list. It is important to find the right balance between taste and price, luckily, Caldora offers the perfect solution with its Chardonnay Terre di Chieti from Abruzzo, Italy. This chardonnay is full-bodied and balanced with notes of tropical fruit making it easy to drink and approachable for everyone at your party.

The “Who wants a shot?!” Guy

Not everyone is interested in or can handle a straight shot of tequila, so purchase a few packs of LIQS Cocktail Shots, ready-made fusions of premium spirits, real fruit juice and natural flavors and everyone on your guest list will be able to join in. LIQS comes in four flavors, Lychee Grapefruit, Kamikaze, and Lemon Drop as well as a Cinnamon Orange Tequila, which means they offer a little something for everyone!

Brockmans Hot Collins

Brockmans Hot Collins

It’s officially been fall for about a week. The days have slowly been getting colder and the nights increasingly longer and today is no exception. It would be so easy to let the chilly, gloomy day turn into a predictable, uneventful evening, but instead let’s heat things up with a seasonal cocktail unlike any other, the Brockmans Hot Collins. The dynamic blend of botanicals and notes of blueberry and blackberry in Brockmans Gin are key to developing the smooth, delicious flavor of the cocktail. Pair the gin with lemon juice, agave syrup and boiling water and you have the perfect drink to turn your night from ordinary to anything but with just a couple of sips!

Brockmans Hot Collins

2 parts Brockmans

1 part lemon juice

1/2 part agave syrup

4 parts boiling water

Mix all ingredients and pour into small mug or thick, heat-proof glass. Garnish with Grapefruit zest, a Cinnamon stick and Cloves.

**Note: This can also be served as a batch cocktail for a party by simply multiplying the quantities.
