Among all the unwritten rules for celebrating Christmas, we think it’s pretty important to have a bowl of nuts sitting ready for guests (not to mention chocolates). If you want a drink that pairs well with pecans and pistachios, try stirring up a nutcracker coffee from a strong espresso and 50ml amaretto – we recommend a darker, chocolatey roast like our Guatemala Elephant. For a sweeter, even nuttier version, use our Christmas Coffee: its smooth hazelnut flavour makes for an irresistibly nutty concoction.
Fancy something spicy, creamy and a little bit boozy? Our limited edition Christmas Chai is perfect for this time of year, and we’ve already been getting creative with it: enjoy a hot mug of Christmas Chai, mixed with a single measure of spiced rum.
When it comes to winter warmers, it’s essential that Baileys makes an appearance somewhere. It’s the perfect match for our Christmas Hot Chocolate with its comforting notes of cloves and spiced plum – just add 50ml Baileys to a freshly made mug for a deeply satisfying spiced chocolate Baileys.
Our Silent Night Tea is a soothingly sweet blend of smooth green tea, rich spices and white chocolate stars. It’s a glorious match for the oaky depth of brandy, which highlights the tea’s chocolatey notes – try adding 50ml to a strong pot, giving it a stir and sharing it with friends as a fireside tipple.
