Everyday this week we’re bringing you our tried and tested top-fives to help you feel a little more festive in the lead up to December.
First up! Top five Christmas Cocktails!
1. Fish Market’s St Germain cocktails
Fish Market, near Liverpool Street has partnered with St Germain this Christmas to create festive tipples on their warming winter terrace. Underneath their cosy heaters, you can sip on Christmas themed cocktails such as a Merry Margarita, Christmas Spiritz, Bloody Festive or Holiday Cheer, all for around £10.50. (Whilst you’re there check out their set menu, very reasonable for the food!)
Dirty Bones will be upping the festivities this year with their Fig Poppa cocktail (£9). Made with Bulleit bourbon, Pedro Ximinez sherry, cinnamon, figs, lime and Fee Brother’s plum bitters, the cocktail is served on the rocks with a rosemary spring and cinnamon stick to finish. The cocktail will be available across all Dirty Bones restaurants, and they’re even putting on a festive menu to match the festive cocktails on offer!
The most expensive on our list, but the arctic themed lodge at the City restaurant, this year is one you can’t miss. A brand new cocktail list has been created to reflect the colours of the Northern Lights in hues of green, blue and purple with such examples as Green Sky with Hennessy fine de Cognac, Jasmine, and Chandon; Star Walk with Hennessy fine de Cognac, Finca Malbec, creme de figue, vanilla, lemon, glitter jam and raspberries; and for something extra warming Arctic Wilderness, a unique hot cocktail combining Hennessy Cognac, grape tea, moscat sweet wine and ginger candy syrup. All at £13.
Old Bengal Warehouse (Near Liverpool Street) this Winter is where, in collaboration with Woodford and Old Forester, they have created a warming festive terrace, Whiskey in the Woods. The Rye Nogg (£11.50), a take on the classic eggnogg, is an indulgent mix of Woodford Rye, Frangelico, caster sugar and cream, and there are plenty of others to make you feel festive if that isn’t up your street!
The after-work favourite are back with their Christmas cocktails for 2017, with five festive cocktails for December. Super indulgent and one for everyone’s taste, try the mince chai, with Bold London Spirit, Bitter Truth Pimento Dram, gingerbread syrup, chai tea syrup, pressed apple juice, egg white, citric acid & Fee Brothers Cherry Bitters. Delish!
