Three simple cocktails to make this Christmas

Three simple cocktails to make this Christmas

It’s 10 days to Christmas and we are stoked to have received the Hennessy Very Special Shaker Cocktail Set inspired by The Art of the Apothecary.

This limited time gift set comes with a 700ml Hennessy V.S. bottle and a copper coloured top shaker that can make a 250ml single serve cocktail. With measuring lines inscribed on the shaker, a rubber banded stopper and copper colour lid, the vessel allows easy and convenient cocktail making with no spillage.

If you prefer Hennessy V.S.O.P, there is also the Oh So Classic Cocktail Set that comes with a 700ml bottle of Hennessy V.S.O.P and a jigger. Both sets are available in premium supermarkets.

We have used the Hennessy Very Special Shaker Cocktail set to make some drinks that would be apt for Christmas, be it for alone time or with your loved ones. They are simple, punchy and warms the heart of any sipper. Here you go:
