Sip Those Cocktails… And Win!

December 21, 2015

Yes Fab Friends. ‘Tis the season to sip, slurp and savour all the booze you’ve been squirrelling away for ‘something special’.

Treat yourself and try these new cocktail recipes I’ve put together using some incredible ingredients I’ve fallen in cocktail-love with this year.

First – let’s talk Rum; It’s not just for Nog anymore.

I love a good sparkling drink, so created a Mount Gay Rum Spiced Spritzer:


What you’ll need:

  • 1 ounce Mount Gay Barbados Rum – Black Barrel
  • 1 tsp LEMO Lemonade Spiced lemonade syrup
  • 5 ounces PC Black Label Ginger Pink lemonade
  • 1 part cinnamon to 3 parts white sugar
  • Lemon
  • Champagne flute (because everything tastes better in a flute!)

What you’ll do:

  • Rub the lemon flesh around the rim of your champagne flute
  • Dip the glass into your cinnamon sugar mixture
  • Measure in your rum and LEMO
  • Gently pour in the PC Ginger Pink Lemonade
  • Sip this subtly spicy, nice and bubbly drink like Lionel Richie, all night long

This year Italian liquor brand Disaronno paired with Italian fashion brand, Cavalli to create a Disaronno bottle that is as chic as it is delicious.

In University, we drank Disaronno with orange juice and thought we were the classiest ladies in all the land.

I’ve upped the bubbles game with this recipe, you’ll love it paired with your holiday brunch. Here is The Disaronno Mimosa:


What you’ll need:

  • Champagne flutes (because, fancy)
  • Cranberries to add some garnished flare
  • Lime
  • 1.5 ounces of Disaronno
  • 2 ounces of cold Soda Stream water (get it nice and carbonated)
  • 5 ounces of orange juice (maybe try this kind!)

What you’ll do

  • Cut your lime into wedges
  • On a stir stick, skewer those cranberries
  • Using your Soda Stream, create super carbonated water
  • Measure and pour in your Disaronno into your flute
  • Pour in your OJ
  • Slowly pour in your Soda Stream water
  • Garnish with your lime wedge and cranberry skewer

Keeping on the delicious Disaronno train, try this Disaronno Ginger Sparkler:


What you’ll need:

  • Champagne flute
  • 1.5 ounces Disaronno
  • 5 ounces PC Black Label Ginger Pink Lemonade
  • White sugar

What you’ll do:

  • Rim your flute with white sugar
  • Measure in your Disaronno and top with sparkling ginger lemonade

And how about this Adult Disaronno Hot Chocolate:


What you’ll need:

  • Your favourite holiday mug
  • 1 ounce Disaronno
  • 2 ounces strong coffee, or 1 ounce espresso (if you’re fancy like that)
  • Top up with your favourite hot chocolate. I am in love with everything Calgary’s Silk Road Spice Merchants make, and their Classic Hot Cocoa is perfection

What you’ll do:

  • Mix it all together and top with whipped cream or marshmallows

Now, let’s say for a minute you need to lay off the booze or you are the night’s DD.

You can still feel super fancy sipping some of Soda Stream’s latest Sparkling Gourmet Waters.


My two favourite flavours are their Blackcurrant Lime and Green Apple Cucumber. Pouring on top of lots of ice, add your carbonated Soda Stream water, measure in the flavoured syrup, toss in some blackberries to garnish and you’ve got yourself a delicious alcohol-free mocktail.
