The New Year is nearly upon us! If you’re hosting a party this evening or just having a few friends over to raise a toast to new beginnings, we’ve put together a couple of delicious sparkling tipples for you to try.
However you’re celebrating, whether it’s a big gathering or a quiet night in front of the fire, we wish you a very happy new year and all the very best for 2016. We’ll see back here on 4 January.
A rich, zesty version of a Royale, simply pour 2 to 3 tsps ginger liqueur (try The King’s Ginger, The King’s Ginger) into a flute and top up with chilled champagne or sparkling wine.
To make our country cocktail, combine 90ml blackberry liqueur or crème de cassis (try British Cassis), 120ml gin, 3 tbsps elderflower liqueur or cordial, and 4 tbsps lemon juice in a small jug and chill in the fridge until you are ready to serve. Pour a little into 8 stemmed glasses (champagne saucers look especially pretty) and top up with 1 bottle of chilled English sparkling wine (try one from Nyetimber), or Prosecco.
