New Years Eve cocktails

Put the mulled wine down, it’s time to bring out the sparkles! 

New Years Eve 2020 is looking like it’s going to be slightly different than previous years. But, if there’s one thing we can always count on for celebrating the new year it’s having a great cocktail in your hand (hands up who thought we were going to say singing along to Auld Lang Syne). Unfortunately, we can’t go out to our favourite bar to enjoy a fizzy serve this year, but that doesn’t mean you have to miss out. Become your own mixologist and try out some of these tasty serves yourself! 

If you’re feeling stuck for what to do this year, we’ve got you covered! We’ve outlined the top things to do to celebrate the new year from home. Whatever your plans are this year, make sure you do it in style with a new year's cocktail in hand! We love creating these special occasion cocktails, but if you prefer a classic, head over to our cocktail recipe finder. Check out our top picks below...

Sherbet Buck’s

Sherbet Buck's Cocktail Recipe

If a Buck’s Fizz is for Christmas morning, then what’s for New Year’s Eve? A Sherbert Buck’s of course! We’ve twisted this classic mix by taking out the orange juice and substituting for sherberty Oleo Saccharum and passion fruit purée - yum!

Temperance G&T

Temperance G&T Recipe

Ok, ok, so this isn’t technically a ‘cocktail’ as such, but who says your new years drink needs to be alcoholic to be great? We’ve taken a classic G&T and given it a no alcohol twist with our extra tasty pink gin flavoured syrup. Delish!

Guava Daiquiri

Here at Funkin we all love a daiquiri, but new year is for trying something new, which is why we love this twisted version filled with tropical guava. If you’re staying in this year, crank up the dial on your thermometer and party like you’re in Hawaii!
