3 fun festive cocktail ideas to try now!

I love Christmas so much. Isn’t the best? All the eating, socialising, lazing around, film-watching, and, of course – the drinking! Nothing gets you in the party spirit like a good Christmas cocktail, so I had tons of fun creating three festive cocktails using Smirnoff vodka – and I’m so excited to share them with you! Please give them a go, and tag me in your photos… Cheers!



Christmas Canes

This festive twist on the Cape Cod is the perfect accompaniment for getting festive in the kitchen, whether you’re stuffing the turkey or watching the action unfold with a mince pie.


  • 40ml Smirnoff Vodka
  • 15ml lime
  • 10ml sugar
  • 20ml cranberry juice


Arthur was intrigued and managed to muscle into the shot…!


Pour ingredients into a glass, churn in a glass with mint, top with ice and garnish with a candy cane, mint, cherry and lime (1.6 Units Per Serve)


Peach Cheer

This new cocktail has been created with flavor trends from the festive season and makes for the perfect drink with friends on New Year’s Eve. It’s the perfect alternative for those who enjoy festive bubbles, but are done with prosecco.


  • 25ml Smirnoff Vodka
  • 25ml peach schnapps
  • 15ml lime juice
  • 10ml sugar syrup
  • Lemonade/Soda



Put Smirnoff, schnapps, lime juice and sugar syrup into a cocktail shaker. Shake and pour into a glass. Top up with lemonade (or soda) and garnish with lime and cherries (2 Units Per Serve)


Smirnoff Peppermint Twist Hot Chocolate

Made with the limited edition Smirnoff Peppermint Twist Liqueur, this hot chocolate with a twist is the perfect accompaniment to cosy Christmas nights in with friends and family.

Available at selected Asda stores for £10, a limited edition during the festive season! You can scratch the bottle to activate its peppermint scent.


  • 50ml Smirnoff Peppermint Twist Liqueur
  • 200ml hot chocolate
  • 1 dollop of whipped cream
  • 1 peppermint stick



Mix a shot of Smirnoff Peppermint Twist Liqueur with hot chocolate, then garnish with whipped cream and a peppermint stick (2 Units Per Serve)

As always, you guys, remember to drink responsibly!
