Mistletoe Martini at The Shelbourne

There is nowhere quite as festive as the Shelbourne Hotel at Christmas time. As part of the festive season, the no. 27 bar and lounge in the Selbourne have created the White Christmas, a refreshing combination of vanilla vodka, amaretto, crème du cacao and grenadine.

Sherbert Sip at the Liquor Rooms

The Liquor Rooms is one of my favourites for their excellent quality cocktails. One of their festive specials that took my fancy is the Sherbert Sip, a tempting mix of Martello, homemade Orange Curaçao, Maraschino, homemade Pimento Syrup, and lemon.

The Nutcracker at the Funky Fish

Dublin’s newest late bar, The Funky Fish, has just opened its doors tucked away at the rear of the Seafood Bar on Dawson Street. One of their festive creations, the Nutcracker, sounds like it would really hit the spot with flavours of hazelnut liqeur, bourbon, orgeat syrup, and freshly grated nutmeg.

Hot Buttered Rum at The Sussex

With a combination of rum, brown sugar, butter, cinnamon & cloves this is just like a hug in a glass. The Sussex is the ideal cosy spot to spend a lazy afternoon enjoying some food and hot drinks!
