Four exquisite recipes to celebrate Christmas in style

As we are approaching the festive season, it becomes clear that this year is going to be quite different. Intimate settings will be favoured over ostentatious celebrations. We will be making up for lost time with our loved ones and focus on what matters most: gratitude, appreciation, quality and taste.

During the most difficult times, the absence of the finer things can heighten our appreciation of them. From gifts around the tree to food and wine served at our table, every gesture, small or large, will take on new meaning. This is why we turn our eyes to luxury, to find the touch of subtle inspiration we all need to bring an extra sparkle of life to this unique festive season…

At The London Essence Company, we are passionate about helping people through their discovery of the perfect cocktail pairings to accompany and elevate these unforgettable moments. We infuse contemporary beverages with the glamour and nostalgia of the old world, to effortlessly elevate any occasion. When you choose a drink from our collection, you’re choosing good taste, and an intelligent union of flavours your guests are sure to notice.

Developed with distilled botanicals, The London Essence Company presents three distinctive mixer collections, delicate tonics, crafted sodas and distinctive gingers, each of which showcases timeless flavours with a contemporary twist.

To celebrate this month’s luxury auctions at Christie’s, we have let our imagination run wild with the chosen items and created 4 cocktails which you can make in the comfort of your home, to enjoy with your guests and toast to something truly special.

At Christmas, this year more than ever, good taste gets noticed.
