Christmas party season is well and truly upon us where it’s impossible to leave the office, text your friends or simply walk down the street without someone asking “fancy a drink?”.  Of course, you can’t say no, it’s Christmas! But if you are getting fed up of going to the same bars, ordering the same boring beers and dull wines, fear not because we have some simple cocktail solutions to shake up the ordinary and impress your guests that can easily be made from the comfort of your own home.
