Xmas Drinks

Many of us will be celebrating with family and friends over the holiday period. In this post, The Pop Inn team share our favourite drinks for the summer season:

Kimberley – “While a sparkling red is my go-to on Christmas, I can’t resist a cheeky cocktail. For me, nothing says Summer like an Aperol Spritz. 2 parts Aperol, 3 parts prosecco, a splash of soda, plenty of ice and an orange wedge. It’s tangy, tasty and refreshing.”

Dan – “My favourite way to relax on a warm summer evening is with a Gin and Tonic with a splash of lime. It’s cool and refreshing, and the perfect drink to match relaxed conversation.”

Natasha - "Christmas Day for me is a jug of Pimms on a hot summers day by the beach. It’s tasty and refreshing and cools everyone down as we dig into our Christmas feast." 

Cass – “An espresso martini is my perfect way to start Christmas Day. Like my start to every day, but better.
It’s four ingredients in a blender! I don’t really stick to the prescribed quantities, but if you must:
150g Vodka 
120g Kahlua (Mr Black is better but whatever is around)
120g espresso coffee 
300g Ice
Blitz for 20 seconds and then strain over non-blitzed ice into four glasses. Or one. I go with one, because I really like coffee.”

Eldad – “Why not combine Wine and Gin, well… this is where Four Pillars have done the work for us - Bloody Shiraz Gin. I love this drink as it both refreshing and has a great taste!

Now, why spoil a great Gin with Tonic? I like mine with soda, here is the recipe: 

  • 45ml Four Pillars Bloody Shiraz Gin

  • 100ml Soda Water

  • Orange or lime for garnish”
