Tis the season to be jolly. And to drink Christmas-spiced White Russians because let me tell you, they’re damn delicious!

Christmas spiced white Russian

Christmas cocktails! YAY! I absolutely love a good cocktail but during the festive season, they seem to taste that much more delicious, don’t they? I don’t know if it’s the stress from finding perfect gifts or just the fact that it’s the end of the year but I appreciate a good cocktail so much more when December rolls around.

And today I have a treat for you because this Christmas-spiced White Russian recipe is an absolute hit. I mean, let’s face it, White Russians are always a good idea but when you add a Christmas-spiced syrup to the mix, you know we’re in for a party.

The spiced syrup can be made up to two weeks in advance and kept in a sealed container in the fridge making the assembly of this cocktail even easier. Make a single serving White Russian when your in-laws are stressing your out or a big jug to share with friends. Either way, we’re getting jolly, right?!

    Oh wow, I think I’m going to have to give this a go! I am an avid guzzler of White Russians at home and I generally make mine wth milk and two big spoon fulls of vanilla Haagen Dazs!
