New Year’s Eve is a time to be celebrating and not to be stuck behind a bar entertaining! Pre-batch your spirits, prepare your ingredients, sieve your syrups and you’ll be set for a great NYE celebration.
Love the addition of Monkey 47 Sloe Gin to make a rich and fruity but not overly sweet cocktail. This one is a must try!
Laird’s Applejack add’s a welcome touch of sweetness to a traditional Manhattan and pairs perfectly with Dolin Rouge, sweet vermouth.
Gin seems to be the most popular base for a fizz and there are also a multitude of variations such as silver, golden and royal fizz which are with egg white, egg yolk and whole egg (respectively).
You’ll either love or hate the Negroni. This cocktail has been around since about the 1920’s – try replacing the Campari with Aperol for a less-bitter Negroni.
