Classic cocktails for Christmas Day

By: The Canadian Living Test Kitchen

Spirits have long been part of culinary feasts, so it is not surprising that many food professionals also enjoy playing bartender. Like wine, a well-chosen cocktail can enhance the subtle flavours of food while adding flair and fun.

Christmas wouldn't be the same without a classic drink to share with friends and family. Here's a list of our favourites to offer your company this holiday season:

Raspberry Kir Royale (seen in image at left):
Pour 1 oz (2 tbsp/25 mL) raspberry wine (framboise or Crème de Framboise ) into flute; top with sparkling wine. Garnish with fresh or frozen raspberry. Rim glass with sugar, if desired.
