6 FESTIVE DRINK RECIPES

Indulge at home this winter with our festive cocktail selection.

Whatever the size of gathering this year we think every festive party needs two things to make it fun and fabulous: food and drinks (and some sparkly decorations, of course!). When it comes to planning your drinks, you can’t go wrong with delicious wines and beers, but what about the holly-jolly festive cocktails? Whipping up a round of fun mixed drinks or bubbly champagne cocktails is one of the best ways to spread some holiday cheer. And of course, here in Lancashire there is no shortage of artisan producers creating handmade spirits each flavoured with individual mixes of heady spices and fragrant botanicals inspired by the counties rural landscape to give your cocktails that true Lancashire twist. In this recipe book you will find a selection of delicious festive drink recipes from both Lancashire producers and local businesses, perfect to get the party started.

Bottoms up!

RUM PUNCH

SERVES 6 | PREP TIME: 5 MINUTES | MOORHALL.COM

Ingredients 200ml dark navy-strength rum 100ml brandy 600ml English breakfast tea – brewed stronger than normal and left to cool 150ml lemon juice 300g demerara sugar

“One of sour, two of sweet, three of strong, four of weak.” That is, one part lime juice, two parts sweetener, three parts rum (preferably from Barbados) and four parts water. Moor Hall's take on this classic uses tea instead of water, to add some extra depth of flavour.

Method Put everything into a large bowl, add lots of ice and stir well. Ladle into tumblers filled with fresh ice, garnish each glass with a slice of lemon or orange (we use dried orange slices), and serve.
