Whatever the festive season looks like this year, Christmas crackers cannot be cancelled. And, while those terrible dad jokes and useless trinkets do hold a special place in our hearts, we want something a little more special this year.
And one of those upgrades certainly comes in the form of Mr Fogg’s boozy Christmas cracker kits. The award-winning bar we love visiting in Broadgate (or one of their other destinations) has teamed up with Cointreau, The Botanist Gin, Mount Gay Rum and Remy Martin to deliver Christmas cocktail gift sets across the UK.
In true Fogg’s fashion, each Christmas Cracker cocktail kit (£19.50) is filled with quirky surprises and traditional cracker items including hats and jokes alongside the two cocktail serves. All crackers also come with a bespoke Mr Fogg’s pocket watch from Phileas Fogg himself, guaranteeing swift entry into his humble residence. Because, why not?
In celebration of everyone’s favourite lockdown libation, The Margarita, the team have created a special Cointreau Christmas Margarita made with Cointreau, AquaRiva Blanco tequila, citric acid solution and aromatic bitters, finished with cinnamon powder and sugar to garnish.
Gin-spiring cocktails made with The Botanist Gin include: the Snow Queenie Martini made using The Botanist Gin, Aperol aperitif, creme de framboise liqueur, pineapple cordial, citric acid solution and still pink rhubarb tonic water topped with a dried lemon and Lady Marmalade a combination of The Botanist Gin, Cointreau Blood Orange liqueur, crème de pêche liqueur, Earl Grey tea cordial and citric acid solution and chocolate bitters served with a dried orange slice.
Saint Nick’s Mulled Nip offers a heady mix of Mount Gay Black Barrel Double Cask rum, cherry liqueur, mulled wine, apple pie syrup and rooibos tea while the Reindeer Fuel Espresso with Remy Martin VSOP cognac, amaretto, coffee, banana, vanilla and chocolate bitters is guaranteed to add a spring to your step.
For those big households, we recommend you get one of their cocktail crates featuring all five serves to get the festivities going and keep guests suitably quenched. Everyone should be treated to some fancy cocktails this Christmas.
