Five Cocktails/Mocktails for the Festive Season

Updated: May 4, 2020


The most enjoyable part of Christmas in Australia is that it is followed by the summer holiday season! So it can't get better, can it?

As a perfumer I'm always attracted to natural fragrant things like flowers or fruits. I can't find a better way of celebrating this perfect marriage than mixing up some cocktails/mocktails!

The thing about these luscious drinks that I enjoy the most is that there are no limits to creativity and they come packed with vitamins and some other good stuff. Squeeze some of your fave fruits, add syrupy liquids infused with aromatic herbs, edible flower petals, and/or spices et voila! You've got your 'virgin' base. Do you have a favourite alcoholic drink? Add a pinch to get the extra punch and you're done. Ready to enjoy! These are my picks for the upcoming holiday season.
