The festive season is now officially in full swing and for most this means the start of a very busy time indeed. From the rush of the Christmas shop to planning Christmas dinner, it may feel that there simply isn't enough time in the day to create the perfect Christmas. Here at Devon Hampers we are taking the stress away from one area in particular by creating a brilliant guide to our delicious spirits and liqueurs. So take a few minutes out of your schedule and take a look at our guide to the spirits and liqueurs that will definitely make any Christmas party go off with a bang.
Where To Start
Whilst planning any party it is key to first create a list of who is coming to your party and what their particular tastes are. If nobody is a fan of gin but you have decided to offer a gin based cocktail then choose a liqueur or spirit that makes a great substitute. The best host is always accommodating so feel free to experiment with different mixes until you find a drink that will please everyone. It is also a great idea to get a wide selection so you can offer a choice which guests love, and will also last until your next party.
