Fes­tive drinks

The Herald Magazine - - etc BRIAN MAULE CHEF -

WE round up some dec­o­ra­tive drinks to put the cheers into Christ­mas, says Sam Wylie-Har­ris.

1. Daffy’s Gin Christ­mas Card (5cl), from £7.49 for a sin­gle card; box of six cards £44.94, Daffy’s Gin We love this boxed gin-cen­tric card with a fes­tive mes­sage on the back: “The weather out­side is fright­ful but the gin in­side’s de­light­ful, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!”

A stock­ing to hang on the man­tel­piece, with a fes­tive punch cock­tail mixer (50cl) and two minia­ture bot­tles of Tan­queray Gin.

3. Dec­o­ra­tive Snowflake Baubles, from £8.95 (3cl), The Whisky Ex­change The per­fect mea­sure of whisky, bour­bon, rum and gin, for a quick fix on the big day.

4. Gin Baubles Gift, £29.75 for six, Laith­waite’s Pick­er­ing’s Gin baubles can be threaded through a red rib­bon and pinned as a gar­land; plus they’re refillable.

Just the tonic for gin and vodka lovers: dress the ta­ble with th­ese crack­ers, which work just as well for small soirees as well as larger grown-up gath­er­ings.
