Holiday cocktails - let’s celebrate!

Shaking up the holiday season at duty free

Choosing this year’s best cocktails? It’s a tough job but someone’s got to do it! Our taste buds have been busy putting this year’s yummiest cocktails to the test, hard at work to pick a few favourites. All so that you have the perfect selection to see out the party season.

Because what better excuse than the holidays to celebrate with cocktails - whenever you can! Pour yourself some truly tasty pre-party drinks. Create eye-catching cocktails for your own festive gathering. And kick back in style on Christmas Day. However you’re celebrating, these are the cocktails you need to do it.

The gorgeous Gordon's Pink Gin cocktail

Fun, fruity and fabulous - all the ingredients for an extraordinary cocktail. You’ll also need passion fruit syrup, fresh lemon juice and Gordon’s Pink Gin, of course. We love the simplicity of ingredients here, harmoniously blended to compliment the Gordon’s Pink Gin flavour and allow it to shine.

The lip-smacking Sipsmith London Dry Gin cocktail

Lemon juice, Cointreau and Dry Vermouth, with Sipsmith London Dry Gin and finished with the ginger beer. Then garnish with favourites from the festive kitchen - rosemary, thyme and orange peel. This has a real depth of flavour but is refreshingly light.

Johnnie Walker Black Label Triple Cask cocktail - what a mouthful!

This tastes exclusive because it is! It’s only in Dufry duty free shops you’ll find Johnnie Walker Black Label Triple Cask. Blend it with fresh pineapple and mint leaves, and plenty of ice, for a rich, smoky taste with a fruity edge.

The classically festive Cranberry Lime cocktail

Behold the cranberry! A festive fruit if ever there was one. So it only seems right to bring you a cocktail inspired by its deliciousness. And because this is all about celebration, it’s topped with Veuve Clicquot Rich Rosé Champagne. Get the party fizzing.

Whichever cocktails you’ll be making, make sure you’ve all the ingredients to hand. All the bottles above are available at duty free. You can even reserve the ones you want, then pick them up (or send someone else to collect them). Then mix the drinks and the music, get the cocktails and conversation flowing and raise a glass to good taste and great holidays.
