Top 12 Christmas Cocktails

  1. Eggnog is an oldie but goldie! It’s a sweetened dairy-based beverage traditionally concocted with milk and/or cream, sugar and whipped eggs. It tastes great with or without alcohol, which makes it perfect for parties that with drinkers and non-drinkers.
  2. Hot Buttered Rum traditionally associated with the festive season and is for when you need some TLC over the holidays – perfect for small gatherings and parties of two.
  3. Mulled Wine is a wintertime classic – red wine with sugar and all sorts of spices. Perfect for an occasion outside and in the evening for warm bellies.
  4. The Peppermint Stick uses white crème de cacao and peppermint schnapps to get a mint chocolate flavour. Easy to serve one by one or in premixed pitchers. Peppermint creams are also a favourite sweet snack dessert which makes a lovely compliment.
  5. The Christmas Cookie blends the commonly paired Kahlua and Bailey’s with an unexpected shot of peppermint schnapps.
  6. Had enough of the holidays already? Have a Grinch and feel better.
  7. The Santa Shot layers peppermint schnapps, grenadine and green crème de menthe for a beautiful little shot of Christmas spirit.
  8. The Chocolate Raspberry Martini is just what it sounds like. Oh, yes, it is. The classic and fabulous Christmas combination of juicy fruit and chocolate.
  9. The Red Hot Santa Tini uses chili-pepper infused vodka and a rim that’s cocoa powder mixed with cayenne. Not your typical Christmas fare.
  10. Tired of being a grown up? Get a Snowball down you. A blended, creamy drink featuring tequila and cinnamon.
  11. The Poinsettia is very simple: champagne, Cointreau and cranberry juice.
  12. The Candy Cane blends peppermint schnapps with berry vodka and crème de cacao to make a drink that truly passes for dessert.


And the Christmas must-have that makes all this possible – the Cocktail Shaker!


Starting the New Year in Style

Say goodbye to the Christmas Blues

It’s nearly time for all those festive decorations to come down. Remember they should be down by the 6th of January to ensure a happy start to the New Year.

It’s always a lot more of a pain taking down the decorations than it is putting them up, the excitement is over and it leaves the house feeling cold and lonely. There is no warm glow from the fairy lights at night while you sit watching heart warming Christmas movies, that special familiar smell of the tree has been replaced with the day to day smells of family life.

We just don’t like that feeling when the festive excitement dies down and all that is left is the cold and rainy January nights, we thought that a lot of you would probably agree so we are sharing our plan for how to make the most of the dark nights. Candles!! The perfect fairy light alternative. We like to light some lovely flickering candles and snuggle up in our snuggle fleece blankets infront of the TV.

We are very lucky because here at The Discovery Store we have lots of beautiful and unique candle holders to chose from. Candlelight dancing around a dark room is such a beautiful thing that it helps you to relax and unwind and forget about Christmas till next year.

Here are 4 of our favourite candle holders…

Milano: Glass Candle Holder £9.95      Bellino Bell Jar Candle Holder Vase £12.95
