our dazzling Christmas dinner deserves delicious Christmas drinks — and Sir Edmond is here to help. For the occasion, we selected three titillating concoctions, each with their own festive twist. Orange, red or yellow, take your pick…

This Gin & Tonic has been a Sir Edmond favourite since the day it was first thought up and tasted. How such a simple recipe — 50 ml of gin, 150 ml of premium tonic, some coffee beans and a slice of orange — can have such a tasty impact remains a mystery to this day. The ‘Orange & Coffee’ has the ability to get any kind of party started, from a fancy dinner party with family to a party party with your best friends.
The Flamingo Club has its roots in pre-Prohibition era Philadelphia. The classic drink on which we based our festive version is called the Clover Club, named after a gentleman’s club in Philly’s Bellevue-Stratford Hotel, founded in the late 1800s. The Flamingo Club is hard to ignore: served in a Martini glass with a few pieces of raspberry on top, it’s a feast for the eyes. This fresh and fruity thirst quencher is best enjoyed with simple syrup — the Dutch call this ‘stroop’ — or raspberry syrup.
The French Rebel is Sir Edmond’s take on the French 75: an irresistible combination of gin, champagne, lemon juice and simple syrup. Served in a champagne flute, this cocktail is your perfect partner-in-crime when it comes to Christmas festivities. (Non-rebels might say the French Rebel should be illegal, it’s that good.) Whether your dinner is going smoothly or in need of a spirited boost, this innocent looking creation has got you covered.
