Understandably perhaps, I often get asked what a mixologist chooses to drink on Christmas Day. Admittedly I do pretty much have everything to choose from – especially all the weird and wonderful liqueurs. However sometimes perfection is achieved with simple things.
Also, I don’t necessarily want all the hassle of cocktail shakers in the minutes which lead up to the serving of Christmas dinner. So as a suggestion then, perfection for Christmas Day can be Marmalade champagne. This is one I discovered just a few years ago, but it is simply brilliant. All you need are 2 ingredients ; a bottle of something bubbly such as Champagne, Prosecco or Cava and some of Chase’s sublime marmalade vodka.
No great trickery either. Just add 25 ml of marmalade vodka to a flute or champagne saucer (as pictured here), top up with your choice of fizz, and you’re good to go.
I am a fan of champagne style cocktails generally, and there are many you can choose from to accompany your meal, your evening or your day!
There are more champagne cocktails here and I will write a second blog soon with some more cocktail suggestions featuring champagne.
But for now, enjoy your day. Happy Christmas one and all. Cheers 😉
