Red wine is the ultimate winter warmer, and so perhaps its the perfect choice when creating a Christmas wine cocktail. Make a mulled wine to keep away the cold using a bottle of red and some spices to enhance that seasonal flavour. Simply add any combination of orange, cinnamon, cloves and star anise to a pot, along with some honey or sugar, and maybe even a drop of brandy. Then, gently heat and it's ready to serve!
If you're dreaming of a white (wine) Christmas this year, you can create a winter twist with a white wine cocktail. It doesn't need to be complicated! A simple dash of elderflower syrup will liven up any glass. For that extra seasonal flair, add some colour to your white wine, with a splash of pomegranate juice and orange juice, mixed with just a dash of cognac.
To add some sparkle to any party, a champagne cocktail always does the trick! You can also use sparkling wine or prosecco instead. It couldn't be easier to raise a glass with a red currant champagne cocktail. Simply add red currant purée (made from crushed currants and sugar) to your favourite fizz. Create a champagne, cranberry and tangerine punch by combining cranberry juice and freshly squeezed tangerine juice with a handful of cranberries, and mint to garnish. These Christmas wine cocktails are sure to keep you celebrating well into the new year!
