 OLD FASHIONED CHRISTMAS_LOW

 

For something a little more traditional, take a look at the ‘Old Fashioned Christmas’ by Marvin Humes. This perfect festive cocktail combines the purity of Smirnoff No.21 with a spiced mix of apple juice, cranberry, cinnamon, orange and star anise.

It’s a drink inspired by the aromas and flavours of Christmas. This Old Fashioned Christmas is a delicious combination of spice, mixed with the pure, clean flavour of Smirnoff No.21 Vodka.

Marvin created The Old Fashioned Christmas by combining Smirnoff No.21 Vodka, apple juice and a spoonful of cranberry sauce along with a slice of orange zest to a glass mug filled with ice. He gave it a good stir to mix the ingredients together and garnished with a pinch of cinnamon. Then, like the Christmas tree, he added the star (anise) on top.

Ingredients:

35ml. Smirnoff No. 21® Vodka

50ml. Apple Juice

1tsp Cranberry Sauce

1pinch(es) Cinnamon Powder

1piece(s) Orange Zest

1piece(s) Star Anise

1.26 units of alcohol per serve

 

Method

  • Fill a glass with ice.
  • Add Smirnoff No. 21 Vodka, apple juice, cranberry sauce and orange zest into the glass.
  • Stir with a bar spoon until the mixture is well combined.
  • Sprinkle cinnamon powder over the drink and place a star anise on top to garnish.
