If you can’t whip out the cocktails at Christmas when else can you? In celebration of the festive season, Ex Directory has created the exceedingly delicious Lady Penelope cocktail, which is a beautiful concoction of port, pineapple, Warner Edwards rhubarb gin and prosecco.

XXXMAS Feast

Forget what you know about Christmas dinner and take yourself along to Slim’s Pork Chop Express, because they are offering the naughty but nice XXXMAS Feast. Think BBQ pigs in blankets, smoked turkey, honey glazed gammon, brisket and pulled pork, alongside cauliflower mac ‘n’ cheese, maple carrots, sweet potato mash, cranberry gravy and maple bacon collard greens.

Traditional Mulled Wine

Where: Alma de Cuba
It’s not Christmas until there’s a glass of mulled wine firmly in your hand, which is why Alma de Cuba has put a spin on the traditional festive drink, as they have created their own recipe, which offers a blend of their own secret spices.

Hot Chocolate

The Bastion Bar & Restaurant is providing some delightfully indulgent hot chocolates this Christmastime. Choose from 8 delicious flavours to suit your festive needs, as they will be serving up everything from salted caramel to peanut butter brownie hot chocolates. Costa might have dropped the white hot chocolate from their menu, but you will find one on The Bastion’s menu, as well as a dark chocolate cherry bourbon flavour.

Christmas Cocktails

Where: Red Door
Red Door has created not one but four amazing Christmas cocktails for you to enjoy this Yuletide season.
The Snow Glove is a perfect combination of sloe gin, chambord, gingerbread syrup, cranberry juice, plum bitters and lime juice. However, for a twist on the classic mulled wine, we recommend Miracle on Berry Street, which is made up from sloe gin, malbec, orange juice, almond syrup and Christmas spices. The Night Before Christmas will also linger on the tongue, as it’s an amalgamation of appleton VS rum, white Cacao, mixed fruit, half & half and egg.
There’s also the Smoking Santa, which is a sharing kettle that’s filled with Ketel One Vodka, Amaretto, Licor 43, cinnamon syrup, cranberry juice and Christmas spices.

The Festive Pizza

Where: Santa Maluco
Santa Maluco never fails to serve up scrumptious pizzas, so it’s absolutely no surprise they have created their rather tasty festive pizza, which features roasted turkey, pigs in blankets, bacon and a cranberry glaze, all on a tomato and mozzarella base.

Festive Punk Tea

The Baltic Social aren’t afraid to put an amazing twist on traditional afternoon tea, and turn up the notch a little bit more at Christmas with their Festive Punk Tea, which is, simply put, amazing.
