Getting into the Christmas ‘Spirit’*

Candy Cane Liqueur 2

When it comes to celebrating Christmas, I’m not sure anything feels quite as festive as a really great cocktail. From something as simple as a Bucks Fizz or Mimosa with breakfast, to more complicated options later on during the day, it’s always fun to be able to kick back and enjoy a cocktail (or two!).

So, when Aldi got in touch with their take on some seasonal options, I couldn’t resist giving them a go. I had no idea that the stores were so well stocked – from whisky liqueurs to London Dry Gins – you can stock the whole bar cart in a single visit!

The Gingel Bells cocktails are also high up on my list – I love a good gin, so the Oliver Cromwell London Dry Gin with lemon and a Vodka Liqueur sounds dreamy!
