Debenhams hosted a festive fun cocktail workshop with 12 bloggers to kick off the fun festive season and to get some gift inspiration! Keep reading for some top cocktail recipes to try out this Christmas.
No matter how organised we all try to be, when it comes to the Christmas countdown we all need a little help when trying to find the perfect gift for our family and friends. Debenhams run the Found It campaign to help people with the difficult task of finding that special gift for that special someone. During the event I had some much needed gifting inspo which you can see in my Vlogmas part one series (see below).

Debenhams Cocktail Masterclass
The Snowball Martini
Put a handful of ice into a cocktail shaker, we used one from the Jasper Conrad collection. Add the advocaat, cognac and juice from half a lime. Shake well and strain straight into a martini glass, then finally add just enough cold lemonade to double the liquid in the glass. Garnish with a mini candy cane to give a touch of festive fun!
The Gingerbread Bellini
Mix together lemon juice, ginger cordial, hazelnut liqueur and a little ice in a cocktail shaker. Have a small ball of icing or marzipan ready, then gently press it onto the rim of the champagne flute to help secure the mini gingerbread man. Top up with a little prosecco and serve.
We then had the opportunity to free style and make our own cocktail, mine was called the Tinsel Teaser. I wish I could remember what was in the cocktail cause it tasted delicious! That was all part of the fun, to get creative and make a drink unique to me. You guys should definitely try making your own cocktails,mocktails at home. Debenhams fortunately stock everything you will need to host a great cocktail evening in your home.
Special thanks to the mixologist, who patiently taught us the art of making cocktails. You can follow them on Instagram @Freelancebartending
