Christmas entertaining can so stressful, can’t it?! But with a few cocktail classics up your sleeve you WILL be the host with the most! 

Here is Lucky Pineapple’s  round up of five simple – yet super special! – festive cocktails to quaff merrily this Christmas.

Let’s get you feeling festive, not frazzled!

Gingerbread Spiced Clementine Fizz…

15ml clementine juice & gingerbread spices syrup, 1 tsp Campari, top with chilled Prosecco & stir.

Garnish suggestion: Dehydrate an orange slice and pierce with a small rosemary sprig. Attach to the side of the glass with a bamboo clip. A clementine skin twist also works well as an easier alternative to dehydrating fruit.

Happy National Margarita Day gang – not that I ever need an excuse to knock up (or knock back!) a cocktail or two…

When it comes to margaritas, my one piece of advice is to always, ALWAYS, choose a good quality tequila if you don’t want it tasting like the naff 2 for 1 you used to get down at the student union back in the day!

I love Don Julio or Herradura tequilas and in fact, I would be happy to sip these neat over the course of an evening, they are that delicious.

A good drink should have you feeling all kinds of fabulous (at least until the morning after!), so it’s quite fitting that the classic margarita was apparently invented by a bartender back in 1938, in honour of Mexican showgirl Rita de la Rosa.
