It’s not all about Christmas!

We have a massive build up to Christmas day, planning for weeks or months on end, shopping, cooking, wrapping gifts, and then it is all over. The big day has been and gone in the blink of an eye.

Boxing Day is the day of recovery, then we hit those kind of nothing days between Christmas Day and New Year’s Eve – WHAT? New Year’s Eve? Yes, while we are busy doing all the running around for Christmas, many of us forget about New Year’s Eve until the last minute and are often left making last minute plans.

Most of us celebrate Christmas with close family, but most of us celebrate New Year’s Eve with friends, and we usually choose the friends we celebrate with because of the fun factor.

I have just found a way to be super prepared for celebrating the bringing in of a New Year without any stress – Cocktails!


Buy your ingredients now, put them away until after Christmas, invite your most ‘fun’ friends, put out a few quick nibbles, buy some ice about an hour before your guests arrive and then the real fun begins as you shake away to your heart’s content.

Steve Quirk is the author of X-Rated Cocktails – and the ‘X-Rated’ bit is why I suggest this for a celebration with friends rather than family.

Steve first took an interest in cocktails when serving in the navy. He found himself experimenting with all types of spirits and liqueurs and creating his own recipes to share with friends and family. He began to compile as many recipes as he could find and his hobby soon became an obsession. After three years he has created the most comprehensive collection of cocktail recipes around.

“There is a cocktail to suit every occasion, from fun with friends to intimate and naughty celebrations with your significant other, you will soon master the skills to mix cheeky cocktail concoctions using these delicious recipes,” says Steve.
