News

Become the ultimate host this season with some of Arbikie's favourite festive drinks using easy recipes you can follow at home!

Mulled AK's 

(serves around 7 drinks)

200ml AK's
75ml ginger wine
5x cloves
2 x slices of orange peel
1 x cinnamon stick
1 tablespoon runny honey
400ml cloudy apple juice

Make it cold, then heat it to just below boiling and it's ready to serve!

 

Kirsty's Negroni 

(serves around 7 drinks) 

250ml Kirsty's
250ml Vermouth
250ml Campari

Carefully pour 225ml for each of Kirsty’s Gin, Campari and Vermouth into a large container or a clean pan.

Slowly and carefully stir to bring all ingredients together for around 2 minutes.

Decant your cocktail into your clean spirits bottle or wine bottle and refrigerate.

The marriage of these flavours and ingredients develops the longer you leave your Negroni in the fridge. In fact the drink will develop more flavour and character the longer you leave it so each time you drink it will taste slightly different. Negronis have a long shelf life so no need to worry about it ‘going off’.

To serve; simply add some nice cubed ice into your rocks glass.

Top up with around 100ml of your pre-made Kirsty’s Negroni and garnish with an orange slice or use all the oils from an orange zest.
