My Favourite Christmas Bevvies

Okay, who doesn’t love a ‘cheeky bevvy’ at Christmas 😉 Well, it doesn’t have to be exclusively at Christmas does it, but with more parties and gatherings, it’s a decent excuse! I’m going to share with you my favourite festive drinks – not all alcoholic, but some will make the list!

Baileys

Is it even Christmas without Baileys?!

Chai Latte from Nero

It doesn’t HAVE to be from Nero, but after shopping around, their’s is the one I prefer. Hot and creamy and filled with winter spices – Nutmeg, Cardamom, Cinnamon, Ginger… It’s soooo yummy!

Tia Maria and Coke

It’s not exclusively Christmassy, but that tends to be the time of year when I have the drink, so now associate it with cosy Christmas nights in. It’s delicious.

M&S Christmas Bottles

Now, I don’t do much shopping in M&S, so I don’t know if these are new this year or if they’re around every winter…but the other month whilst browsing, we saw these! Cute little bottles, whose contents look divine, and all specifically Christmas inspired flavours. We’ve tried the Cherry Brandy, Christmas Cake Liquior, Golden Creme Brulee, and Chocolate Liquior. Whether they’re drunk straight, on the rocks, or mixed into a hot chocolate, they’re really more-ish!

A Festive Costa Hot Chocolate

I’m not much of a coffee drinker, but I’ve heard that coffee is better elsewhere. When it comes to festive flavourings however, Costa has my vote, and has done for YEARS. I tried my first Black Forest Hot Chocolate in London when I was training, and I’m SO GLAD that they continue to bring the flavour back each year! Try their other flavours as well, but this is my favourite!

Espresso Martini

This was Ed’s contribution to the list. When asked why, he said ‘Coz that’s the only time of year all the required ingredients are in the house’… 🙈 After a little laugh to himself, he decided it was because it’s an association drink (like Tia Maria for me!). I’ve never actually had one, so I’m looking forward to adding it to my Christmas traditions list this year!

Mulled Wine

Whether you’re a big mulled wine fan and can drink multiple glasses of the stuff, or whether 1 cup is enough to satisfy you for the whole of the season – it’s a bit of a necessity. From personal experience, it’s best enjoyed at a market or other Christmas event, steaming hot as you’re wrapped up against the chill ❄️ Though I’ll never say no to a glass 😉

  1. Tia Maria and coke is sooooooo good! And you can’t beat some mulled wine! Although I have to confess I’m not one for baileys, even with my Irish heritage!
