Christmas Pudding Fizz Cocktail
13th December 2021
Talk about getting into the Christmas spirit, I don’t know how much more festive you can get, this Sixpence Pud Christmas Pudding Gin Liqueur might just be the perfect drink to get you into the Christmas mood.
They claim it’s ‘the most festive bottle you will ever see!” and I’m inclined to agree with them, a fantastic Christmas bottle design, it won’t look out of place this December, that’s for sure. it’s available from Harvey Nichols for only £25. You get a 50cl bottle of Gin Liqueur in a Half a Sixpence display box, even containing a brief history of the pudding on the side of the box. It’s also Vegan friendly and contains no nuts or dairy.
The Gin Liqueur contains warming flavours of Christmas spices, including cinnamon with mince pie, Christmas cake, dried fruit like raisins and prunes overlaid with icing sugar, toffee and syrup on the aroma. A syrupy sweetness, combined with dried fruits, gives you a liquefied Christmas pudding on the palate. Although you can’t see it clearly in the bottle, there’s also a golden shimmer that shines beautifully in your glass.
When creating this year’s Christmas drink, they took inspiration from the old tradition of placing half a sixpence into a pudding mix, the whole family would stir the pot at least once and whoever found the sixpence in their serving on Christmas Day would enjoy wealth and prosperity for the year ahead.
