“On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me, a partridge in a pear tree… On the second day of Christmas, my true love gave to me…” I am sure we all know how the song goes by now, the classic ol’ twelve days of Christmas song. Instead of giving partridges, geese or milkmaids and whatnots for the twelve days of Christmas, how about some Christmas cocktails and drinks to liven up the holiday mood instead?

Twelve days of Christmas:

On the first day of Christmas, try a hot buttered rum! Imagine hot rum mixed with brown sugar, rich spices and warm melted butter – that is exactly what a hot buttered rum is. Topped off with a dollop of whipped cream and ground cinnamon, this is comfort in a mug and is sure to keep you warm and toasty.

A cute cocktail for any Christmas party.
