Here in the Tropical North, we’re not so worried at Christmas about warming those cold cockles or the wafting scents of fir near the fire… this is a place where coldies from the esky, cocktails by the pool and buckets of prawns win the long game of feasting over several days.
But it IS still Christmas, so it’s always good to have something to separate the festive season from any other summer day, right..? Which is why we made our Christmas Pudding Gin.
So how do you drink your Mt Uncle Christmas Pudding Gin? Well, we’ve teamed up with our mates at Jimmy Rum’s Mixing Lounge in Port Douglas who have put together some obscenely tasty drinks you can make at home or – even better – pop on in and treat yo’self.
Need to keep up that spritely vibe with the man in the Red Suit? Santa’s Coffee is a good heart-starter! A twist on everyone’s favourite caffeine-fuelled cocktail, this one uses a little of the Mt Uncle SexyBlack Coffee Liqueur as well… putting extra oomph in your Christmas jingle.
Can you catch the Gingerbread Man? This one is definitely worth the chase. And for those looking for a bit of Irish luck this festive season, the Christmas Clover is certainly one you can make wishes on.
When dessert rolls around, a wee little splash of Christmas Pudding Gin over your Christmas pudding is something truly decadent. Then, for those later hours post-feast when you’re kicking back rubbing full bellies, keep it simple with a Trifle Negroni or whip up absolutely cracking Christmas Flip.
If this is how your Christmas is going to look, why not show someone you care (a lot) about them and gift ’em a bottle of the good stuff…
Ho ho ho!
