With just a few days to go, I thought I would write about some lovely festive tipples I’ve come across this week to get you in the party spirit! (No pun intended).
Tesco Finest have created two delicious drinks to enjoy over the Christmas period (and beyond), so I thought it would be rude not to share! Why not treat yourself – or a loved one – to a bottle? I love the art deco labels on these bottles – you can image how stylish they look on a drinks trolley or tray.
First up is the cocktail of the year – the Espresso Martini. Coffee + cocktail = dream come true! Absolutely delicious.
All you have to do is shake over ice and pour! Preferably into actual martini glasses (or wine glasses if you’re unorganised like me!).
Tesco Finest Negroni – £15
Inspired by the classic Italian recipe from c.1919, this Tesco Finest Negroni is made with sweet vermouth, orange bitters, London dry gin and water. Yum!
A little trivia for you now…when a Count asked the bartender to strengthen his favourite cocktail, the Americano, with a splash of gin. The Tesco’s mixologists have created a blend of this classic cocktail so that you can enjoy the tastes of La Dolce Vita at any special occasion!
To create the perfect Negroni every time, simply pour into a short glass over ice and garnish with a twist of fresh fragrant orange peel. Easy peasy!
There you have it – two go-to tipples that will be sure to make you the hostess (or host) with the most!
I hope you enjoy yourselves this festive season, stay cosy and always drink responsibly!
All my love,
