May your Christmas be boozy and bright…
Christmas is well and truly upon us, which means that lights are going up everywhere, people are starting to panic (just the tiniest bit) about buying gifts, orders are being placed for turkeys / vegetarian alternatives, and people are buying up the vast array of weird, wonderful and beautiful baubles available on the market.
However, it’s been a rough 2018, and glittery avocado baubles, animal-themed decorations, furry hanging sloths and ceramic cacti just aren’t going to cut it for some people. Indeed, with everything going on in the world, many are more than ready to embrace all the decadence and booziness of Christmas.
Thank goodness, then, that there’s a batch of cocktail baubles on the market. As in, yes, three different cocktails hanging off your tree – all of which involve wine.
The brightly coloured decorations come as a set of three in bold traffic light hues; there’s a vivid green one, an amber one, and a festive red number, too. And, as you may have guessed, each colour represents the cocktail hidden inside it. Think a Cranberry Cosmoplitan, a Mango Daiquiri, and a Lime Margarita – all of which simply require a quick chill in the fridge before you pop them open and guzzle them down.
It’s certainly a fun adult twist on the traditional chocolate decorations, isn’t it?
The set is available for just £5, which is cheaper than a single measly drink in most London cocktail bars.
It goes without saying that they’re probably going to sell out very quickly indeed, so we recommend that you ready your sleigh and coax your reindeer into galloping a little faster than normal. Or, if you’re feeling a little creative, you could always invest in a set of hollow bauble flasks for your tree.
To make them as boozy and bright as the gin and cocktail creations, all you have to do is pick your favourite spirits, fill up your decs, seal the lids, and tie them to your tree – that way you can re-use them again, year after year, and spread festive cheer to all.
It’s beginning to look a lot like (a very messy) Christmas…
