3 Vegan Christmas Cocktails | Recipes | Vegmas Day 7

Hi guys, and welcome back to Vegmas day 7! We’re now officially in part 2! If you’re not sure what I mean by part 2, click here. Today is the first of my Christmas recipes and I thought we’d kick things off with something fun and festive. 3 Christmas Cocktails! I wanted to keep these recipes quite simple. You don’t need a cocktail shaker or any random ingredients. One does require a blender, but other than that, it’s all pretty simple.  

All recipes are one serving.  

Orange Fizz 

We’re all familiar with Bucks Fizz at Christmas, even with (or before) breakfast. Well, this one was created with that in mind. This orange fizz is for those who like the taste but want something a little stronger as the day goes on. It’s the most basic out of the three I’m sharing today, but basic is still good.  

3 vegan christmas cocktails

Ingredients  

  • 35ml Cointreau (or other orange liqueur)  
  • 125ml prosecco 
  • Orange Slices (for garnish) 
  1. Start with the orange liqueur in a flute then add the prosecco and orange slices. Best served without ice 

Pomegranate Gin Fizz 

3 vegan christmas cocktails

Ingredients 

  • ½  pomegranate 
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice 
  • ½ cup soda water 
  • A measure of gin (less or more to your preferred alcohol level) 
  • ice cubes 
  1. Deseed the Pomegranate and blend the pomegranate seeds in a blender – pour the juice through a thin strainer or nutmilk bag to get rid of the hard pieces. 
  2. Pour the pomegranate juice in a glass, add fresh lime juice, gin and 1/2 a cup of soda water. 
  3. Add ice cubes and give it a good mix before serving. 

 

Cranberry Gin Cocktail 

3 vegan christmas cocktails

I’d love to gift you with a story about where this one came from, but the only inspiration behind this was as follows. 

Me: I want to include a cranberry one, it’s Christmas. And gin, people really like gin right now. Cosmo with gin instead of vodka? Nahh. Plain gin fizz…? Hmm no the other two are fizzy. So just a cranberry gin then? Maybe… 

Ingredients: 

  • 1 measure Gin  
  • 150 ml Cranberry Juice 
  • 10 ml Lemon Juice 
  • Ice Cubes 
  • Mint Leaves 
  1. Place mint at the bottom of a tumbler*. Fill the tumbler glass with ice cubes (or a cube or two if you have sensitive teeth like me) and add the gin and lemon juice. Top with the cranberry juice and stir. Taste and adjust the quantities how you’d like. 

 *The tumblers in this post were gifted to me by The Personalised Gift Shop. They let me pick something from their site to have personalised and I opted for these hand cut crystal tumblers. For anyone still looking for something to buy for the person who has everything, I highly recommend something like this. The glasses come beautifully presented in a lined box and the personalisation is a lovely touch. On mine, I got family nicknames ‘Colin’ and ‘Pes’. For reference, I’m Colin…

Have you ever had any cocktails similar to any of these? What’s your favourite festive tipple?  

Until tomorrow, 

Sophie

    I honestly don’t drink anything alcoholic but these cocktails look and sound amazing. I’d probably just tone down the alcohol level and do more juice / soda concentration! Thank you for sharing this xx

    I’m a sucker for a good cocktail, especially fruity ones so these seem right up my street! I’m definitely going to try the cranberry one! Gin + cranberry what can go wrong

    I don’t really drink alcohol but the cranberry drink sounds lovely. i’d probably switch it for vodka because I am boring and know I could easily pass the drink off to someone else if I don’t finish it if it’s a cranberry vodka. i’ll have to share these with my extended family because they love cocktails! great post! xxx

    I think I would really enjoy the orange fizz one! I really want to experiment more with drinks – I actually have a cocktail book but it’s having all the things you need to make them!

    I’m not a huge orange fan, but the cranberry and pomegranate sound delicious!!! I can’t wait to try them and those tumblers

    I am not one to say no to a cocktail! I need to try that pomegranate gin fizz! It looksamazing! I love pomegranate in cocktails!

    I was about to say “oh, I really want to try this one”, but I realised my answer applies to every one of these! Haha! I think my favourite festive tipple is the really traditional egg nog, though it’s rare I actually get to have it at Christmas! Other than that, I love a mojito!

    I don’t even drink and these cocktails look amazing! I’d love to try making the orange one or something similar! X

    These all look and sound amazing! I don’t actually like Prosecco but love Cointreau so will definitely be trying the orange fizz but will substitute it for Asti (not sure if thats vegan or not? but I’d assume that it is. I’m craving a cocktail now!

    Holy cats how have I never thought of the orange fizz before????!!! You just blew my mind! I have tangerine liquor already!!! It’s on.

    I don’t usually go for cocktails around Christmas, I’m so boring and just go with a spirit and a mixer like a Malibu and Coke – perhaps because it’s my favourite drink anyway I always opt for it. The pomegranate gin looks and sounds so good though!! I love how many different flavoured drinks you can make with gin now it’s fab
