Whilst the first snows have begun to fall in the Cotswolds and we are getting ready to hunker down for Christmas,

find a bit of festive cheer with our selection of Christmas party cocktails and canapés to make and enjoy with your friends and family. Light the fire, settle in and have a jolly good Christmas and New Year.  See you in 2018!

Snowdrop Cocktail

  • 250ml Vodka
  • 250ml Martini Bianco
  • 5ml Angostura Bitters
  • 2 x 75cl bottles of Champagne/Sparkling wine
  • Sprigs of rosemary
  • In a jug mix the vodka, vermouth and bitters. Keep chilled. 
  • To serve pour 35ml into a chilled flute glass add a sprig of rosemary and top with cold Champagne.

Mulled Sloe Gin

  • 1 litre of apple juice
  • Juice of 3 lemons
  • 3 cinnamon sticks
  • 6 dashes of Angostura Bitters
  • 2 oranges
  • 300ml sloe gin
  • Cranberries to garnish
  • Combine apple juice, lemon juice, bitters and cinnamon sticks in a large pan. Simmer for 15 minutes. Remove from heat. Add orange slices and sloe gin. Garnish with cranberries, orange slices and cinnamon sticks.

Then have a nibble at one of our favourite canapés - truffle honey-roasted fig and pancetta crostini with gorgonzola, pear crisps with blue cheese and hazelnuts, or a hearty mini Yorkshire pudding, served with smoked venison and redcurrant jelly. Diet starts in the New Year..
