Spiked Spiced Cider

The perfect winter drink to break the ice, as your guests flood through your front door.  Simply throw all the ingredients into your Vitamix container and blend until warm with the desired consistency. Pour into mugs to keep guests’ hands warm and decorate with a cinnamon stick.

Champagne “Rose” Bonbon

Guests may bring a bottle of bubbly for your party so why not use it straight away? If it isn’t already cold from outside, chill it in the fridge for a few minutes before making this classic recipe. Mix together lychees in syrup, fresh red raspberries and some elderflower liquor before blending in your chilled champagne. Finish off by hooking a candy cane out of each glass.

Spiced Nog Ice Flip

A combination of rum, ground nutmeg, cinnamon and eggs, this recipe is bound to make all of your guests’ cheeks rosier. Perfect for seasonal sipping this beverage can be served over or without ice. Always garnish with further grated cinnamon and nutmeg.

Lemon Gin Slush

Vitamix has a very easy-to-follow recipe for Frozen Cocktails, but for this yuletide treat, pour gin, orange juice, lemonade and a bit of sugar into your Vitamix container and fill with ice cubes. Aim to achieve a slushy consistency and then this adult twist of a childhood classic will certainly go down a treat.

Alcoholic Peppermint Hot Chocolate

Your celebrations are over, everyone has left and the post-party clear up is finished. Before bed, why not make yourself a cup of the popular Peppermint Hot Chocolate from Vitamix, but with an added ingredient - crème de menthe. If you are feeling extra indulgent, top with a dollop of Whipped Cream and chocolate sprinkles. Don’t stay up too late though, otherwise Santa won’t arrive!
