Christmas Cocktail with Clementine

christmas cocktail clementine mandarin ginger cinnamon delliedelicous

I found some lovely clementines in my local fruit market the other day. So I couldn’t resist buying a kilo or so. I thought that they would be great in a Christmas-inspired drink. So I decided to pair them with a dark rum that I bought the other day for my Eggnog. I also wanted to get some of the typical flavors of Christmas into the drink and what is more Christmas than cinnamon? Ginger is also one of my favorite ingredients (as some of you might now by now) so I had to have ginger in the drink. I topped it of with a splash of apple cider and one spray of Angostura Bitters to balance out the sweetness of the drink. To add some extra cinnamon flavor I rimmed the glass with sugar and cinnamon so you get an instant hit of cinnamon with every sip.
Perfect cocktail for dinner parties, Christmas Eve or anytime you feel like a refreshing drink 🙂
