Boozy mince pie freakshake? 22 Christmas cocktail recipes to jingle your bells

Buck’s Fizz is all well and good, but it doesn’t take much more effort to really impress with your Christmas cocktails.

Following our boozy hot chocolate and hot gin recipes, we interrogated brands and experts for the best seasonal sips using festive flavours such as orange, chocolate, cinnamon and clementine – even mince pies and panettone.

Champagne versions of eggnog, mugs of hot buttered rum, spiced-up Negronis: we’ve got it all. And don’t worry gin lovers, of course there are plenty of recipes to mix yourself something juniper-y (perhaps to indulge in while you browse this list of incredible gin-based presents).

So scroll through our gallery below for 22 Christmas cocktail recipes. All make one serving unless otherwise stated.
