New Home? New Year? Let’s make cocktails!

There is no better way to celebrate moving into your new home than to make cocktails. There is also no better way to bring in the New Year than to make cocktails. In fact, there are no celebrations that don’t have cocktails accompany them. Get the picture? We love cocktails.

We have come up with six cocktails to celebrate the year that was, and the year to come. Now… Let’s make cocktails.

Happy New Year

How could we not include a drink that has the words ‘Happy New Year’ in it? It is light bubbly and ready to party. The ‘Happy New Year’ is easy to make, and delivers an unmistakable taste that will delight your guests.

Champagne Margaritas

These are no ordinary Margaritas. Determined to put the ‘Zing’ in your New Year, the Champagne Margarita combines white tequila, triple sec, champagne, lime juice and sweetened lime juice to create a sweet tangy cocktail.


The Beekeepers Balm

A hot New Year’s Day demands icy cold drinks. The Beekeepers Balm is a sharp refreshment that will hydrate, as well as spark the tastebuds. Made by the pitcher and not by the glass, this cocktail will serve you well late into the night.


Apple Whisky Sour

No celebration is complete without the introduction of whiskey late into the night. Meet the Apple Whisky Sour, a fun twist on the Whisky Sour. This concoction is a slow drinking gentleman’s drink with an added Zesty Tang for summer.


The Long Island Iced tea

Not the most elegant of cocktails, The Long Island Iced Tea is one of the most popular in the summer months. It must be the combination of 5 spirits with coke and OJ, which not only knock your socks off but is the perfect refreshment to bring in the New Year.


Espresso Martini

The bitter-sweet combination of a shot of coffee, coffee liqueur and vodka, shaken with ice makes this drink a favourite all year around. When your eyes start to haze over in the early hours of New Year’s Day, the Espresso Martini is the perfect drink to bring you back to life.

Happy New Year from the team at Smooth Start. Drink safe, and stay safe over the festive season.
