How to Drink Christmas Gin Cocktails
Any of these Christmas gin cocktails would be an amazing way to kick off a holiday party! To accompany Christmas dinner, Christmas gin fizz or punch would be a great idea since they're more refreshing. On the other hand, a Christmas gin martini or sour would be great as a pre-dinner cocktail or a nightcap. Either way, you can't go wrong!
Christmas Cocktails Equipment
Depending on which of these Christmas gin cocktails you choose, you'll most likely need a few tools: First, a cocktail shaker may be necessary for shaken drinks like a Christmas gin sour or gin fizz, whereas a mixing glass and a cocktail strainer are more appropriate for stirred drinks like a Christmas gin martini. I also recommend a jigger to help with measurements.
You'll also want to get the cocktail glasses that correspond to the holiday cocktails you're making. A rocks glass works well with a gin Christmas punch, garnished with a cinnamon stick or orange slice. On the other hand, a Christmas gin martini calls for stemmed cocktail glasses.
