Christmas cocktails

November 18, 2022

Sleigh what?! Festive cocktails for every Christmas occasion 

Last year we asked Santa for a great year of grapes, and damn did he deliver. Aside from enjoying our tree-mendous range of wines in their purest form, if you’re a dab hand at hosting or just want to step up your game, you’ll love these four easy cocktails that are sure to impress even the pickiest of party guests. 

Eggnog and mulled wine have earned their place in the history books (yawn), but we think it’s better to flip your guests’ expectations with something deliciously different. 

Who knows, you might just meet your new favourite Brancott drop under the mistletoe! 

For the office party 

Whether you’re dusting off the glad-rags or it’s more of a low-key affair, shake off that awkward office chat and shake up a little something different: the Brancott Tropical.  

Made with Brancott Estate Sauvignon Blanc, it’s the perfect tasty tipple to zest up even the driest of workplace shindigs. Honey and passionfruit will lure you in, but don’t let the tropical sweetness fool you–the fresh lime kick will transport you to that well-deserved annual leave with every sip. 


Christmas Day  

You can’t beat a classic, so kick off Christmas in style with the Brancott Mimosa –  an easy cocktail that tastes like a total crowd-pleaser.  

Because no one can be bothered with complicated drinks when there’s presents floating around, the classic mimosa has just two simple ingredients for a deliciously fresh drop. Equal parts crisp Brancott Estate Brut Cuvée and OJ, it’s refreshing, balanced, and served sunny-side-up for a great start to the day. 


Relaxing by the fire 

When the fire (and the evening) gets hot, keep your cool with the Brancott Spring, AKA our pick for a fireside toast. Fresh mint, pink lemonade and a dash of vodka play to the strengths of our vibrant classic Chardonnay for a show-stopping cocktail. 

All that’s left to do is find some marshmallows. Not for the cocktail, we just think they’re yum.  


New Year’s Eve festivities 

Starting a new year with an old drink? Sounds like you need to switch to our twist on bubbles, the Brancott Spritz. Tickled pink with a vibrant Blush Rosé base, it’s got berries and ice and all things nice to Spritz up your New Year’s Eve. 

If you’re feeling boujee, serve it in your fanciest glassware to take this party favour into a party favourite in a flash.
