The Orange Russian

The orange Russian is an absolute delight to serve to guests at your Christmas party. For this particular recipe, you can use a coffee liqueur like Kahlua or other custom made cold coffee liqueurs. Now all you need is your favorite gin, orange liqueur like Triple Sec, coffee liqueur and cream. Now pour it over ice and the drink is ready.

Mulled Gin

You might have heard of mulled wine, but today, we have mulled gin for you. This drink is particularly good for the cold holidays because it is warm and comforting. Combine apple juice, orange juice, and holiday spices in a pan. Next, get your favorite gin and add it to the mixture. You can garnish it with apple slices and orange slices!

Gin Hot Chocolate

Spiked hot chocolate? We are all for this perfect holiday party drink. For this particular drink, you need cream, mulled gin, some delicious spices like cinnamon, star anise, and nutmeg, and melted chocolate. Combine the milk, cream and chocolate, and your spices. Then, add your mulled gin to the mug and pour the hot chocolate mixture on top. Serve it hot.

Cranberry Martini

Cranberry is the holiday flavor everyone wants. This is why a cranberry martini would be a perfect drink to serve your guests. Combine gin with lemon juice, triple sec and cranberry juice. Shake and serve over ice, that’s it! You can garnish with an orange wheel or a few cranberries.

Gin Hot Toddy

This is a drink perfect for large groups at holiday parties. This can be made ahead of time, especially if the weather where you live is incredibly cold. You will need a large pan for this. Add gin, wine, some dark sugar (more if you like it sweet), lemon juice, orange juice, sliced pineapple and clove, cinnamon and nutmeg. Let it come to a simmer and adjust the flavors according to your taste.

Gin Cucumber Martini

If you want to serve something more refreshing, this martini is a great choice. For this, you will need some gin and some elderflower cordial. Shake the two together with some ice to chill the drink. Next, take your serving glass and muddle the cucumber slices. Add the drink to the glass and garnish with mint leaves.

Pomegranate and Rosemary G & T

This festive take on classic gin and tonic will have your guest going for a second drink in no time. First, you will have to make rosemary simple syrup by boiling water, sugar and rosemary in a pan over low heat. Then, mix the rosemary syrup with gin, lemon juice, and pomegranate juice. Next, add the drink to a serving glass and add tonic water on top. You can always garnish with pomegranate seeds and rosemary sprigs. A gin delivery gift means the perfect ingredient for a fun holiday party. These recipes are easy to prep ahead of time and quick enough that you can serve them instantly.
