Christmas Day Drink Ideas and Christmas Cocktails

Christmas is just a matter of weeks away and it’s not hard to predict that there will be many chaotic kitchen scenes within many households on the morning of the 25th December.

At a time filled with lots of excitement to open presents, eat delicious food and spend time with loved ones, there also comes stress to ensure everyone is happy and all of the food is perfectly timed. So, here at Mambo’s, we thought it would be a brilliant idea to give you a few liquid suggestions to see you through the Christmas period, in moderation of course!

Christmas Cocktails with a Mambo twist

 

MOJITO

Ingredients needed:

  • Rum
  • Mint
  • Lime
  • Sugar
  • Soda

The Mojito is the most popular cocktail for Mambo Mobile bar hire by far, as it is a simply delicious drink. Because we create this drink so much, we have created a couple of subtle differences to add some excitement.

  • Substitute the white rum for a Havana Club or a spicy rum I.e. Kraken or Sailor Jerry
  • Add extra spice with ginger beer rather than soda
  • Add a slice of orange to complement the lime

 

SMOKING GODFATHER

Ingredients needed:

  • Smoky whisky
  • Amaretto
  • Bitter

Simply amazing – the taste reminds us of sweet smoky almonds, absolutely delicious.

 

PINA COLADA

Ingredients needed:

  • Rum
  • Coconut milk
  • Pineapple juice

Pin Colada’s are always one of our most popular requests at every event we attend. To add a Mambo twist, swap the rum for a darker one and add some chocolate sauce, yum!
