How to Make Your Favourite Cocktails and Mocktails This New Year

Whether you’re at home this year, or out with friends, New Years is a day worth celebrating. We’re saying goodbye to 2021 and waving hello to 2022, a year full of possibilities and space for new memories and adventures. Inspirational? We thought so.

 

It’s time to get the drinks flowing so we’ve pulled together some recipes from a few cocktail faves to get the night started. Don’t worry, if alcohol isn’t really your thing, there are mocktail options too. Everyone deserves to celebrate together! Plus with our spill resistant fabric, you can enjoy these from the comfort of your Snug sofa without any fear of spillages.

Passion fruit martini cocktail

Passion Fruit Martini

Alcoholic

  • 30ml Vanilla Vodka
  • 15ml Passoa
  • ½ tbsp Lime Juice
  • ½ tbps Sugar Syrup
  • Prosecco to serve and half a Passion Fruit to garnish

Non-Alcoholic

  • Whole Passion Fruit
  • 50ml Sparkling or Cloudy Apple Juice
  • 15ml Passion Fruit Syrup
  • 15ml Lime Juice
  • Few drops Vanilla Extract

We’ve got to say, you’re doing things right if your go-to order at a cocktail bar is a Passion Fruit Martini. Ever wondered how they get that little layer of foam on top of these cocktails? By shaking. Really really well.

 

For the alcohol version, chuck all the ingredients in your cocktail shaker, shake, pour, and enjoy - easy! But remember to add a little shot of prosecco to finish it off. For those non-alcohol drinkers, scoop out the inside of a whole passionfruit and add to your shaker along with the remaining ingredients and shake. When you pour this one, you’re going to want to run it through a strainer just to make sure you’re removing any passion fruit pips.

Cosmopolitan cocktail

Cosmopolitan

Alcoholic

  • 45ml Lemon Vodka
  • 15ml Triple Sec
  • 30ml Cranberry Juice
  • 10ml Lime Juice
  • Ice
  • Orange peel to garnish

Non-Alcoholic

  • 90ml Cranberry juice
  • 30ml Lime Juice
  • 60ml Sparkling Water
  • 30ml Orange Juice
  • Ice
  • Orange peel to garnish

Ah, so you’ve read our Sex and the City blog and now you’re feeling inspired? Well good decision, these little pink drinks are pretty delicious. For both versions, chuck all your ingredients in a cocktail shaker with the ice and give it a good shake. To serve, pour it through a strainer into your glass and enjoy!

Mojito cocktail

Mojito

Alcoholic

  • Juice of 1 Lime
  • 1tsp Granulated Sugar
  • Few handfuls of Mint Leaves
  • 60ml White Rum
  • Soda Water to taste

Non-Alcoholic

  • ½ tbsp Sugar
  • Small handful of Mint
  • 1 ½ Limes juiced
  • Soda Water

Mojito’s always radiate summer vibes so this feels like a pretty good drink to enjoy on New Years. Mix the lime juice, sugar and mint in a jug and crush the mint leaves as you go. Pour into a glass and add ice. Then pour over the rum and top up with soda water to your taste.

 

For the non alcoholic version just miss out the rum, but follow all the same steps.

Olive green sofa

How about something new?

Rumour has it there’s a cocktail making its way to our Snug sofas. The Martini is making waves in the beverage world but only and exclusively when decorated with an olive. In fact the olive is the garnish that keeps everyone hooked. So we’re feeding into the obsession by launching our Exclusive Olive 3 Seater in The Rebel Collection. Because if it’s good enough for a Martini, it’s even better for your homes.
