We can officially embrace Christmas and all it’s joy without feeling ashamed or having people tell us ‘It’s too soon’. We can get our tinsel out, erect that tree and let the Christmas parties begin! And what better way to get the party season started than with a Christmas cocktail…
Last week I spent an evening at London Selfridges learning how to make a few Christmas cocktails including the Flat White Martini! The head barman of Harry Gordon’s Bar taught me how to show off this Christmas by shaking up a boozy flat white for all my friends and family. As a lover of Baileys, Vodka and Coffee, I knew I would enjoy a drink that blends all three perfectly together, I just didn’t realise how much I would enjoy it. This velvet smooth cocktail has a real Christmas taste to it and just left me wanting more!
I’m not great when it comes to over complicated cocktail recipes, which is why I enjoyed making the Flat White Martini, because it’s so straightforward. So if you like a good flat white and are looking for an easy but elegant cocktail to impress your friends with this Christmas, then this is the recipe for you…
And Voila! A perfect Flat White Martini that will go down a treat in your house this Christmas.
Because these cocktails are so delicious they go down very quickly, so just as a serving suggestion, maybe keep a little bottle of baileys chilling on ice for your guest or for yourself to top up your flat white when you start to run out.
Will you be trying a Flat White Martini?
