Vegan Seltzer cocktails for Christmas

Did you know you can heat your hard seltzer up for some warm Winter cocktails?

Well, after some careful late night ‘research’, we’ve put together a few different options to shake up your seltzer game this Winter.

All vegan, and all made with your favourite hard seltzer, and a few cupboard staples you’ll have lying around.

 Fruity Coffee

...because Irish Coffee was so last year

Raspberry seltzer cocktail

  • Add 15ml amaretto
  • Mix with 30ml fresh espresso shot
  • Top up with Raspberry & Blackcurrant Hard Seltzer
  • For best results – try after Christmas lunch, to fight off those food-coma vibes


Mulled Long Shot

Spicing up the post-carol concert drinks scene this year

low calorie drink

  • Buy pre-batched mulled wine or make your own - we used this recipe
  • Mix with Pink Grapefruit Long Shot
  • Heat on hob for 10 minutes, then leave to infuse for 30 mins
  • Add Sliced orange and cinnamon stick to garnish
  • (Optional) - top up with sloe gin or brandy if you’re feeling extra ‘Christmassy’


Festive High Ball

We’ve given this classic cocktail a hard seltzer upgrade

Highball hard seltzer

  • Add 30ml Apple Juice and ice
  • Stir in 15ml cinnamon syrup (we used the ones we had leftover from last years coffee Christmas set)
  • Top up with Strawberry & Rhubarb Hard Seltzer
  • Garnish with mint sprig


Afternoon Tea

What they were really drinking in Alice in Wonderland…

vegan seltzer cocktail

  • Pour 25ml black tea
  • Add in 15ml lime juice (half a lime will do)
  • Top up with Strawberry & Rhubarb Long Shot
  • Garnish with the classic cocktail addition of a Jammy Dodger (other biscuity treats will also work)
