BLOGMAS 2018 / Day 6 – testing Marks and Spencer festive drinks, groundbreaking.

I’ve said that the subject this post is ‘groundbreaking’ for 2 reasons:

– M & S always do a cracking festive drinks selection

– I have posted about the M & S festive drinks range virtually every year since I’ve been blogging.

Pre- night out cocktails: Spiced apple pie martini

An easy breezy drink that requires zero effort to prepare – chuck some ice in a glass, pour and enjoy. It’s the perfect tipple that looks like you’ve made loads of effort when you haven’t, it’s a super sweet and full of festive spices. Nom.

After dinner tipple: Millionaire shortbread cream

If you’re a fan of Baileys/Irish cream drinks and have a bit of a sweet tooth, this is for you. It has the creamy alcohol vibe we all know and love, but the notes of caramel make it feel extra luxurious and festive as God and the Marks’ product development team intended.

General festive merriment: Clementine & Cranberry Buck’s Fizz

If you’re a long time reader of my blog, you’ll know that I’m fiercely loyal that the M&S standard Buck’s Fizz, it’s the best on the market and is often on offer at 2 bottles for £5. However I spotted this, thought the bottle looked pretty and bought it simply so I’d have something a bit different to talk about this year!

Gotta be honest, I’ve been pleasantly surprised by this and I liked it more than I thought I would – the tartness of the cranberry gives it a really nice finish and makes it feel more of a cocktail. It doesn’t replace the original but it’s been a nice change in between.

see you again tomorrow,

J xx
