Throwing a New Year's Eve party? Surely by now you know what you’re wearing – but have you got the drinks sorted, too? Champagne and sparkling wine are the ultimate celebratory beverages, as is mulled wine during the chilly season, although let’s face it, there’s nothing more exciting than a pretty cocktail. Here are three festive New Year's Eve cocktail recipes that are easy, simple, and look beautiful. There’s even a non-alcoholic recipe in there too, so nobody's left empty-cocktail handed.
Dazzling with 100’s and 1000’s, this rainbow cocktail is the perfect sweet starter to excite guests. Wetting the rims of the martini glasses in water, and dipping them in the sprinkles, makes for an ultra-fun looking work of art that will promise a ‘wow’ when served. It happens to be completely dairy-free too.
Name us a drink that makes you feel fancier than a cosmopolitan – we dare you! Just to make this lush cocktail even more spectacular, it’s been festi-fied with a perky red cranberry and a sprig of rosemary. It also works well with candied fruits (like glacé cherries) if you're looking for something shiny to garnish.
