1. Festive Spirits and Liqueurs

Kick off the merriment with a selection of festive spirits and liqueurs. Stock up on seasonal favourites like spiced rum, peppermint schnapps and cranberry liqueur to craft signature Christmas cocktails that will warm hearts and lift spirits.


2. Mixers and Garnishes Galore

Ensure a variety of mixers and garnishes are at your guests' fingertips. From tonic water and ginger beer to fresh citrus fruits, cranberries and cinnamon sticks—a well-equipped bar ensures everyone can customise their drinks perfectly.


3. Crafty Cocktail Station

Set up a crafty cocktail station with recipe cards for DIY mixology. Include a range of recipes for both alcoholic and non-alcoholic options, encouraging guests to unleash their inner bartenders and create personalised holiday concoctions.


4. Wintery Glassware and Barware

Elevate the drinking experience with wintery glassware and barware. Dust off the champagne flutes for bubbly toasts, showcase the warmth of mulled wine in heat-resistant mugs and add a touch of elegance with festive-themed cocktail glasses.


5. Chilled to Perfection

Ensure your beverages are perfectly chilled by stocking up on ice and keeping a cooler nearby. Whether for shaken cocktails or refreshing drinks, maintaining optimal temperatures is key to a successful holiday bar.


6. Non-Alcoholic Delights

Cater to all your guests by offering a selection of non-alcoholic delights. From sparkling water infused with fruit to virgin versions of classic cocktails, provide options that allow everyone to partake in the festive cheer, regardless of their drink preferences.
