Cool coffee liqueur

Cold brew coffee liqueur by Conker Spirit
This gorgeously smooth coffee liqueur is cold brewed by Dorset-based Beanpress Coffee Co, a method that allows the coffee to retain its rich, chocolately, fruity flavour. Mix it in an espresso martini this Christmas, or sip slowly on the rocks. Available from Harvey Nichols (£36). 


Tequila twist

Honey tequila by Cazcabel
A sweet twist on the 'love it or hate it' drink, this honey tequila (apparently made with honey from bees blessed by a healer called Don Cazcabel) feels like drinking a smoky caramel liqueur. Recommended for tequila fans looking to branch out. Available from Master of Malt (£24).
 

Champagne surprise

Everyone knows a Cointreau fan. The iconic orange liqueur has had a 1920s revamp for Christmas with this Golden Age edition that comes in a gorgeous Art Deco bottle. Take it along to a Christmas party – your hosts will be delighted. Available from Selfridges beginning 20th November 2017 (£29.99).

Sweet sipping

A sweet treat for Christmas time, this small-batch vodka has been infused with salted caramel and cocoa. The flavouring is subtle, so not nearly as sickly sweet as some of the other flavoured vodkas available. Refreshing served simply over ice or perhaps for a fun twist on your Moscow Mule this Christmas. Available from Hotel Chocolat (£15). 


The American way

Rye whiskey by FEW 
Rather than buying the same bottle you picked up last year, why not branch out and try something new for the whisky drinker in your life? This tasty American blend, made with rye, corn and malted barley, has a lovely crisp, fruity finish and a festive spicy note. Available from House of Malt (£59.95). 


Cocktail mixers

Going to a drinks party this Christmas? Take along these mixers for making super easy cocktails. You can combine with soda, too, for a festive mocktail. Choose from Raspberry Mojito, Espresso Martini or Bramble flavours. The perfect pressie for the cocktail king or queen in your life. Available from Lakeland (£14.99). 


Prosecco glow

Plain old prosecco is so last year. Here's a great stocking filler for fizz fans to liven things up over the party season – edible rose gold glitter that you add to your glass to give it extra sparkle and a raspberry flavour. There are edible golden hearts in there, too, and the powder fizzes when added to any glass of bubbles. A great Secret Santa pressie perhaps? Available from Harvey Nichols (£8.95).
