1 - Coquito
Hands down one of the most delicious drinks EVER is the Coquito or Puerto Rican eggnog. It takes 5 minutes to make, has a coconut base and doesn't use egg in it so if you're squeamish about raw egg then this is for you. Please try this at least once!
This is a delicious hot Chocolate but served Mexican style with a hint of cinnamon and chilli to warm you up. Oh and it's also delicious served frozen as a slushie too!
So what is Christmas without eggnog? This version has chai spices and the most adorable Snowman on top who is demonstrating relaxation goals (I DREAM of being this relaxed at Christmas).
For those of us in the Southern Hemisphere Christmas is a hot weather affair and hot weather combined with families may mean a good excuse for a cocktail. This Aperol Spritz is served frozen as a granita and is the best way to cool off!
Have you ever tried making your own ginger beer? It's so crazy good and has so much real ginger taste in it! I added chilli to mine and it can be drunk within a few hours of making it!
So tell me Dear Reader, is there a drink that you like to serve for Christmas?
