Christmas cocktails

Emma Brown - Nutritionist | 14 Nov, 2019

Who doesn't love a cocktail at Christmas? Just keep an eye on the calories.

Baby, it's cold outside – and what better way to warm up than with a Christmas cocktail (or two!)? Here's a few of our festive favourites to serve your friends and family this Christmas. Whether you just need something simple for a get together with friends, or you're looking for a more sophisticated recipe to serve at your Christmas party, we've got a few ideas here.


  1. Always ask for diet mixers to avoid adding unnecessary calories and sugar.
  2. Steer clear of sugar packed sweet cocktails: most contain as many calories – and at least half as much sugar – as a bar of chocolate.
  3. Try to alternate between an alcoholic drink and soft drink to save calories – and a sore head!
