Planning Your Christmas Cocktail Party

Christmas cocktails? Yes please! The holiday season is fast approaching and that means it’s time to plan a Christmas celebration that’s as memorable as it is delicious. To make your Christmas gathering truly special, you’ll need to think beyond the food.

We’re going to dive into the art of planning your Christmas menu, complete with delightful cocktails, and even show you ideas for styling your holiday-themed bar cart!


Planning Your Menu

While most imagine snowy and chilly weather for traditional Christmas celebrations, us Aussies will be sweating in the heat for our holiday. So, why not embrace the flavours of summer? You can make your menu feature fresh, colourful, and vibrant ingredients like tropical fruits, garden-fresh herbs, and light seafood.

Our 5 Delicious Christmas Appetisers to Add to Your Summer Menu should be your go-to this season to inspire your fresh ideas!

The next step is to choose your cocktails that complement your dishes. A sparkling and cozy cranberry drink complements traditional settings, while a cooling lemon lime soda is perfect for a lighter fare. You can even make a Grinchmas themed feast with a delicious Grinch Cocktail! Just check out our Guide to Hosting the Perfect Christmas Cocktail Party, for recipes of our favourite drinks!


Styling Your Stations

The next step is to set up cocktail stations around your space. Create a stunning display for your drinks with décor elements that complement your drink’s theme. Make sure there’s easy access to a variety of ingredients and bar tools, so your family and friends can get creative and mix their own drinks!

First things first, pick a cart or console that matches your vibe. Vintage, rustic, or modern – there’s no wrong choice, as long as it fits the theme.

If you want to forget about the heat and imagine you’re in the middle of a classic white Christmas, then you just must check out our polar bear-themed cart. We filled ours with steaming hot cocoa, marshmallows, and sweet treats. But don’t let us stop you, it’ll be perfect for pairing with winter-themed drinks, like a Snowflake Martini!

With the right cocktails, stylish setup, and a dash of personal flair, you can make sure that your guests will remember your event as a celebration of taste and elegance. So, kick back, enjoy and make every sip count. Cheers to crafting the ultimate Christmas experience!
