FAQ Christmas Gin Cocktails

Is gin a Christmas drink?

Gin is a great option for a Christmas cocktail because it pairs well with so many tart mixers and festive flavors like pure cranberry juice and it has its own “floral” undertones and flavor of juniper berries.

What is the most famous Christmas drink?

Mulled wine, without a doubt, the coziest way to enjoy wine during the holidays. A bottle of red wine, a hint of brandy, and some traditional winter spices spices will quickly fill your home with a festive feeling as the days go by.

What does England drink on Christmas?

While champagne, wine, and beer are often drunk before, during, and after Christmas dinner in the UK. Other holiday drinks are enjoyed throughout the run-up to December 25th. However Mulled wine is a staple festive drink throughout the winter holidays in Britain.

What fruit goes with gin?

Citrus fruits like lemon, lime, and orange are a natural match for gin. The acidity and brightness of these fruits complement the botanical flavors in gin, making for a refreshing and balanced drink.

Do you put ice cubes in gin?

Yes! You should put lots of ice cubes in your glass of gin. This dulls the effect of alcohol in your mouth, meaning the gin drink is more pleasant to taste.

What is nice to mix with gin?

Aside from the obvious tonic water,  soda water (lets the taste of gin shine through), lemonade, ginger beer, ginger ale, orange juice and even Coke are all great gin mixers.
