7 Christmas Cocktails with Fentimans & a GIVEAWAY


Get your hands on a pack of Fentimans tonics and mixers this party season. Check out The Gin Kin on Facebook for a chance to win eight 750ml bottles of Fentimans!

The trick to being the hostest with the mostest is an arsenal of Christmas cocktails.

For foolproof drinks, spread the love with a straightforward gin and tonic. From there you can easily up the ante with some unusual mixers and garnishes without putting yourself out too much.

We’ve split up the 7 recipes below in two groups: festive G&T’s and Christmas cocktails. For the former, we’re leaving the gin and tonic ratio to you. We’re not touching that debate. ?
