Happy Holidays

Warning: This article is totally off-topic. It has nothing to do with photography, except for that I took the title photo for my blog. I wish everyone happy holidays and as there are no Christmas markets in 2020 due to Corona, here's a recipe for a winterly cocktail to get you into the mood.

Mulled wine is not really my thing, I have to admit. But the smell of it, creates a nice mood for the Christmas holiday season.

Due to Corona, I began to drink alcohol occasionally again. And so, I had the idea to mix a little aperitif with the taste of Christmas.

It's the taste of cinnamon that does the trick, actually. Here's my recipe.

Recipe for a winter apéro

5cl Lillet Blanc

5cl Tonic Water

5cl Apple Juice

2cl Lime Juice (= half a lime)

2cl Cinnamon Sirup


Stir well, serve chilled. Cheers!

Non-alcoholic version

10cl Ginger Ale

5cl Apple Juice

2cl Lime Juice (= half a lime)

2cl Cinnamon Sirup

Xmasish Apéritif

This is not a sponsored post. I only linked the above ingredients, so you can see how the bottles look. I did not come up with a name for this drink as I have zero intentions to make bar-keeping a hobby.

The drink contains around 4.5% of alcohol. For an alternative without alcohol you could replace both Lillet Blanc and Tonic Water with 10 cl of Ginger Ale.

You can print this recipe, too.

No more off-topic stuff now, I promise. I wish you all happy holidays. Cheers!

Non-Alcoholic version
