COCKTAIL HOUR: THE NUTCRACKER

11.12.13

For us, one of the greatest pleasures of Christmas time is the array of wonderful foods and drinks which suddenly become so deliciously within reach. And, since we’re good (ish) all year round, December is the month where indulgence becomes the order of the day.

It made perfect sense then, for us to commit ourselves to uncovering the perfect Christmas tipple. So dedicated we are to this cause, that we’ll be sharing our favourite bespoke recipes throughout December.

To start, we tasked our friends at London’s STK to come up with a cocktail which was the inspired by the Royal Opera House’s enchanting ballet production of The Nutcracker, and, after much concocting, there was one clear winner. Here it is in all its wonderfully wintry glory.
