THE READY-MADE
COCKTAIL

Want to impress guests without the fuss? Take a seasonal shortcut with a pre-mixed drink – perfect if your mixology skills are more shake it and see than Tom Cruise in Cocktail

When it comes to festive entertaining, there’s no shame in taking the easy route – especially when the results are as delicious as our White Christmas cocktail. A deceptively refreshing amalgamation of spicy rum and vanilla with sharp hints of yoghurt and lemon, all you have to do to get the best from this unique blend is pour it over crushed ice. So when the pressure of entertaining is on, at least you know you’ve got a party-ready treat on standby. For a wintry twist, try it poured over a bowlful of vanilla ice-cream, or add a measure to whipped cream for a brandy butter alternative when it’s time to serve up your Christmas pudding.
