The essential Christmas drinks trolley
Nothing says “I just casually mix a negroni when guests pop in” better than a well-stocked bar cart!
Vermentino - originally from Sardinia, Vermentino has found a new home in the McLaren Vale where it makes mouth-watering citrus-infused white wines. Hello, Christmas seafood! Try: 2016 Oliver’s Taranga Vermentino, $24 per bottle in a case of 6, plus 5,000 bonus points.
Pinot noir - With its bright and juicy fruit flavours and refreshing acidity, pinot noir is a crowd-pleaser. It’s a perfect wine for large groups and suits Christmas Day leftovers. Try: 2017 Eden Road 'The Long Road' Pinot Noir $24.95 per bottle in a case of 6 plus 5,000 bonus points.
Champagne - needing no introduction, Champagne is unapologetically French. Complex, refreshing and delicate, these bubbles are the ultimate festive season treat. Try: Pommery Brut Royal Champagne, $49.50 per bottle in a case of 6 plus 3,000 bonus points.
Gin - produced with botanicals to provide unique flavour profiles, gin is really having a ‘moment’ in today’s drinking culture. It’s perfect on ice, with tonic or as the base of a Tom Collins. Try: Four Pillars Rare Dry Gin, $75 per bottle.
Vermouth - originally created as an aperitif, vermouth is in the middle of a sophisticated comeback. Fix a martini or simply add soda and a few aromatics for a delicious cocktail! Try: Regal Rogue Daring Dry White Vermouth $39.90 per bottle.
Whisky - mull over the year just gone with a whisky in hand and a couple of close friends. Drink as a classic nightcap or serve up an Old Fashioned. Try: The Grove Single Malt Whisky $129 per bottle.
Crème de Cassis - get a little bit retro and make a Kir Royale – it’s a classic French cocktail that mixes a blackcurrant liqueur with Champagne. The best ratio is 1 part crème de cassis to 4 parts bubbles, and should give you a drink that is a blush colour. Try: Massenez Creme de Cassis $39.95 per bottle in a case of 2.
