Swap the tinsel for a cocktail and decorate your Christmas tree with only the best boozy baubles on offer. From Marks & Spencer’s legendary clementine snow globe bauble to World of Zing’s festive flavours, here are the best alcohol-filled baubles to satisfy the cocktail lovers this Christmas.
Craft bottled cocktail maestros, World of Zing have recently launched an assortment of festive boozy treats to be enjoyed come Christmas time, including a selection of Christmas flavour cocktail baubles.
Designed by Channel 4 Sunday Brunch cocktail expert Pritesh Mody, the baubles will see you enjoying a world-class mixology experience from the comfort of your PJs, all while adorning your tree with a quirky bauble. There are four deliciously festive cocktail flavours on offer, including Mince Pie Rumhattan, Sloe Gin Bramble, Salted Caramel Espresso Martini and Rhubarb Cosmopolitan. Perfect for a stocking filler gift or to be spread across your tree.
Marks & Spencer’s Clementine Snow Globe Gin Liqueur reemerged for 2020 and sold out quicker than you can say ‘Merry Christmas’, but if you didn’t get your hands on the twinkling snow globe, you can now get a taste of the fruity tipple, miniature size.
That’s right, M&S has released miniature size versions of their festive favourite, perfect for hanging on the tree in the run up to the big day. The boozy baubles will be packed with clementine flavoured gin and glistening with 23-carat edible gold leaf. The dome shaped bottle is reminiscent of a traditional snow globe, shake it up and watch the ‘snow’ drift to the bottom. Totally adorable and totally delicious.
Produced in Edinburgh’s first gin distillery established over 150 years ago, Pickering’s Christmas Gin Baubles will see you enjoying a slice of history, alongside your festive gin and tonic this Christmas season. Each bauble is filled with a double serving of Pickering’s Gin and is decorated with bright colours and a delicate ribbon finish.
Another one for the gin lovers, only this time these baubles can be filled with different flavours. Choose from traditional Dry Gin, Pink Gin, Elderflower Gin or bypass gin altogether and opt for the Whisky option, that’s been matured in oak cask for a fuller flavour.
These Hearth & Heritage baubles are then finished with a festive gold ribbon and look totally perfect hanging from the tree, and are also great as a stocking filler or secret santa present, for any gin and whisky lovers.
Go the extra mile and personalise a festive bauble for the cocktail lover in your life. These quirky calligraphy designed glass baubles from Etsy let you personalise and pick out the perfect phrase to fit your friend, partner or family member, or go simple with Alice in Wonderland inspired ‘drink me’ wording. Once they’ve been delivered, you can fill it up with their favourite alcohol and hang it on the tree, perfect.
