We remember when advent calendars just meant the ones with the chocolate, nowadays you have beauty advent calendars, beer advent calendars, even cheese ones as well! Not one to miss out on a trend, here at Funkin we have created our own '25 Days of Christmas' cocktail advent calendar. From the 1st December, we will be posting a different cocktail recipe to try, all the way up until the big day! That gives us 25 different cocktails to try this month… OK if we have to…
Saturday 1st December: Pornstar Martini
Being the number one cocktail in the UK means that we will be enjoying a couple of these over the festive season. Did you know that the Pornstar Martini was created using our FunkinPRO Passion Fruit Puree? Safe to say we know a thing or two about this one…
35ml Vanilla Vodka
15ml Passion Fruit Liqueur
25ml Funkin Passion Fruit Puree
10ml Funkin Passion Fruit Syrup
Shot of Prosecco
100ml Funkin Pre-Batched Passion Fruit Martini
50ml Vanilla Vodka
1 Shot of Prosecco
Pour your preferred Vanilla Vodka, and all of the other ingredients into your Boston Shaker with plenty of ice and shake until the shaker feels ice cold. Strain into a Martini Glass and garnish with half a passion fruit and a shot glass of Prosecco on the side.
Sunday 2nd December: Sloe Gin Collins
This Sloe Gin Collins is a simple cocktail to share with a couple of friends to talk about how many more Christmas presents you need to get and how you can’t believe that it is this time of year already...
35 ml Sloe Gin
25 ml Pure Pour Lemon
100 ml Soda Water
Build over ice in a highball glass and serve with a lemon wedge.
Monday 3rd December: Strawberry Daiquiri
One of the three great Cuban cocktails, start the week off as you mean to go on with a delightfully fruity Strawberry Daiquiri. Top with foam from your shaker to make this one look like an upside down Christmas hat!
