Let’s face it, festive celebrations aren’t complete without those moreish Christmassy flavours that we all crave so much, so why not try them in a drink?

When the cold begins to take its toll, nothing awakens your senses and gets you into the swing of the festive season like a punchy Christmas cocktail.

We all know the feeling of sipping a beautiful, vintage glass of bubbly or a warm, tangy brew to get you in the party spirit. If for nothing else, wash down rich food with a spicy, aromatic refreshment or end your evening with a creamy nightcap to leave you with a delicious finishing taste.

Long for those sweet, luscious and unobtainable drinks no more! We’ve collected a tipple or two from some of Dorset’s most delicious drink producers and local Hotels and Restaurants so you can get the good times flowing and try your own hand at making the most Christmassy cocktail's for friends and family during the happy festivities!
