Mouth-watering Mimosa

What better way to start off the New Year’s celebration than with a brunch classic – the mimosa! Refreshing and delicious, this champagne cocktail is the perfect drink to get your loved ones ready to party!


  • 60ml orange juice
  • 180ml champagne


Divide the orange juice into 2 flutes and top with champagne – easy-peasy! Don’t forget to serve this tasty drink in a personalised glass, after all, this is a great way to send a special New Year’s message! And, if they’re not a huge fan of orange juice, just add a little less (or add more if they’re not in the mood to party)!

Classic Mint Julep

After a night out on the town (or at home), there’s no tastier way to refresh their senses than with a first-class cocktail using the finest whiskey brands. Whether it’s 18-year-old Jameson or a personalised bottle of whiskey, this drink will keep the party going long after the town has been painted red!


  • 65ml whiskey
  • Fresh mint leaves
  • Sugar syrup, to taste
  • Crushed ice


Shaken, not stirred – this cocktail is made by mixing the whiskey, mint and syrup inside a cocktail shaker and poured over crushed ice. What could be a better way to enjoy New Year’s alcohol?

And, this is the perfect way to help them make their delicious beer last (from that man crate you gifted them)!

Naughty & Nice Milkshake

With January finally here, it will soon be time to hit the gym, invest in activewear and steer clear of sugar and carbs, so why not have one last soiree complete with a sugar rush? And a wonderful way to give them an enjoyable last indulgence (at least until February) is with a naughty adults-only milkshake! Just don’t forget to include yummy gourmet gifts, like chocolate and nougat, for them to snack on too!


  • Vanilla ice cream
  • Liqueur of choice
  • Milk
  • Flavourings of choice


As with all milkshakes, we all have our favourites, from lime and bubblegum to strawberry and chocolate, so why should adult shakes be any different? For this recipe, all you need to do is blend the ice cream with up to 60ml of their favourite liqueur (we like the sound of Amarula) and a little bit of milk. Add in some yummy extras, like fudge, sprinkles, chocolate truffles, coffee, a slice of cake… it is their last indulgence, after all!
