As the festive season approaches, excitement begins to rise. Christmas adverts appear on television, the music starts to show up on the radio, and every shop is filled with decorations and toys.

Christmas is a great time of year for many reasons, one of which is that it is the perfect time to indulge in some delightful festive cocktails.

These drinks are not just beverages; they’re a way to make memories, add sparkle to your celebrations, and savour the flavours of the season.

Here at Lixir Drinks, we love this time of year, and that’s why we’ve created this blog to make yours extra special.

Whether you’re hosting a big Christmas party for all of your loved ones, or having a cosy night in, these festive cocktails will always add a touch of magic to your holiday festivities.

And the great thing is they’re all simple to make, meaning you will have more time to spend with the family enjoying the special day.  Let’s take a look.

The Fun of Festive Cocktails

Christmas cocktails are always a crowd-pleaser, and here are five reasons why:

  • Celebratory Spirit: Cocktails add a touch of sophistication and festivity, making the occasion feel more special. Who doesn’t love a sprinkle of cinnamon to warm them up on a cold winter night, or a nice bit of decoration around a glass to really raise the excitement levels for the big day?


  • Social Connection: Sharing unique drinks can be a social activity, bringing friends and family together. There is no better time of year for this than at Christmas, so whether it’s just one person, or a crowd, a round of festive drinks is sure to get the party started.


  • Seasonal Flavours: Festive cocktails often incorporate seasonal ingredients and spices, offering a sensory experience that aligns with the holiday mood.


  • Creativity and Tradition: Making and enjoying cocktails can be a creative process and may become a cherished holiday tradition. A great idea to get all of the family involved is to make an alcohol-free version. That way everyone can enjoy a festive drink to celebrate the big day.


  • Relaxation and Enjoyment: Cocktails can provide relaxation, helping to unwind and fully enjoy the festive period. Christmas is great, but it is also a busy time. So, when you get a space between preparing dinner and unwrapping presents, what better thing to do than relax with a delightful Christmas cocktail?
