Your Festive Food and Drink Bucket List | Guest Post

AD | Hello my lovelies! Christmas is the perfect time to forget all we know about healthy eating and indulge in some lip-smacking festive treats and cocktails. From Christmas staples which have been given an exciting twist, to deliciously extravagant cocktails, please find below some of the best dishes and drinks to sample in Liverpool this festive period, and where to feast on Christmas Day itself.

| Lunyalita’s Lunya Gin | Currently available for a special discounted launch price of £32, Lunya have collaborated with Liverpool Gin creator, John O’Dowd’, to create this handcrafted, artisan spirit which takes inspiration from the flavours of Spain. Combining floral and fruity notes, with a subtle smokey spiciness and rich luxuriant mouthfeel, this gin creates the perfect festive G&T when paired with Physalis and burnt orange zest.

| Peaberry’s Festive Hot Chocolates | Taking indulgence to the max, Peaberry Coffee House has just launched a dedicated festive hot drinks menu, including a Ferrero Rocher Hazelnut Hot Chocolate, After-Eight Mint Hot Chocolate, and a Gingerbread Latter; the perfect sugar hit after partaking in some Christmas shopping. 

| Revolution's Wintery Cocktails | Start off December right with a selection of deliciously festive cocktails from Revolution, perfect for any work party or group gathering. Examples include The Wet Bandit, a mixture of fruity Raspberry Bacardi, vanilla liqueur and Lime & Pineapple, perfect for any sweet fruity tooth. For something that screams Christmas, the Holidays Are Coming cocktails is definitely something Santa would enjoy after a long evening of delivering the goods. Made with spiced Bacardi, Luxardo amaretto and caramel, syrup, milk and CocaCola Zero, its delectable, warming and an all-round crowd-pleaser. Other cocktails include Bramble Gin and Grey Goose Vodka & Tonic. To soak up the alcohol, Revolution also has a 3 course Christmas menu or festive buffet, with delights such as Turkey Sliders with chorizo & cornbread stuffing, streaky bacon and cranberry sauce and traditional Pigs in Blankets with red onion and cranberry glaze. Delicious!

With love, Alisha Valerie. x
