Christmas time in Melbourne means it’s time for a partayyy! Who doesn’t love a good company Christmas party to take your employees’ minds off the long, hard year of work they’ve had? You’ll find that throwing a great party takes a lot of work, and there are a lot of things to consider.
The food and drinks served at the party are very important to get right – the drinks more so than the food. If you’ve got an awesome office Christmas function in mind, here are some awesome, refreshing drinks to serve this hot Christmas season:
Tequila Gimlet — For this delicious cocktail, you’ll need tequila, lime juice, and lime cordial. Mix them all up together in a cocktail shaker, and serve in a glass with plenty of ice. It’s a cool, refreshing drink that will fight off the heat.
Shandy — If you’ve got heavy beer drinkers, moderate their intake by mixing a bit of light beer with lime, Sprite, and a sprig of mint. There’s all the taste of beer, but in a much more refreshing cocktail.
Orange Splash — Who doesn’t love a good citrus-flavoured cocktail in the December heat? Mix up a bit of citrus vodka with Triple Sec or Cointreau, and add a splash of orange and/or lime juice. Tangy, sweet, and guaranteed refreshing!
Mango Peach Fizz — Peel yourself a mango and peach, and puree them in a blender along with juice, sugar, peach-schnapps, and champagne. It’s a cocktail that will set your taste buds on fire and have you thirsty for more.
White Wine Sangria — Sangria may have been created in Spain, but who said those in Melbourne can’t enjoy some? Mix up some white wine with seltzer, peaches, and strawberries to make a fruity drink that just won’t quit.
Minty Margaritas — The classic Margarita is a drink perfect for the hotter seasons of the year, so mix yourself up one by throwing tequila into a blender with Triple Sec and lime juice. Once you’ve blended it, serve it in a glass with a few sprigs of mint to add a delicious twist.
Kerasi — This cocktail is a delightful blend of all of the best flavours. Cherry puree is mixed with sparkling wine, peaches, and cherries, and it’s served in a tall glass to make it look absolutely divine.
Watermelon Martini — The deliciously fresh taste of watermelon makes this cocktail a true pleasure to drink, and you’ll find that the mixture of citrus vodka, Watermelon Pucker, and triple sec combines nicely with some 7-Up and orange juice.
Strawberry Punch — Break out the muddler for this drink. Mix muddled strawberries and canned pineapple in a glass with white rum, simple syrup, and lime and pineapple juice. It’s a delicious, sweet cocktail your guests will love.
