Helen’s Starry Sky: Sloe Gin Firecracker
The ultimate mark of festive joy. Deep, rich, filled with the warm winter-berry deliciousness of Sloe Gin and finished with white rum. This Sloe Gin Firecracker cocktail will work all December-long – and well into the New Year too. It comes inspired by Helen’s Starry Sky, where delicate hand-painted blooms emerge from the sky like tiny fireworks to create a starry canvas with bright pops of colour. It really is a firecracker of a cocktail. Serve by the glass in tumblers or punch-style in a large bowl with cranberry-studded ice cubes for dramatic effect.
Aurora Sky: Sparkling Northern Lights
Inspired by the spirit of adventure, the ethereal print Aurora Sky animates this Sparkling Northern Lights cocktail, taking you on a journey through starry skies, hand painted animals, maps (dug out from the Liberty archive) and of course, the aurora borealis. The perfect welcome drink for any holiday soirees, it’s light and refreshing and fizzes with sparkling wine. But, it’s also a little saucy, putting your leftover cranberry sauce to good use. For extra festive spirit, sprinkle in some edible cocktail glitter to truly dazzle your guests.
Emma Etoile: Garden Martini
Of course, it wouldn’t be a Liberty Christmas without a little floral magic. Inspired by an English garden, this floral cocktail blends gin with elderflower, lavender and rose to honour Emma Etoile – a classic Liberty floral upgraded for the season with a smattering of metallic stars that twinkle together in the spirit of celebration. Best served alongside a gathering of your loved ones on Christmas morning as they unwrap longed-for gifts. All good things come in Liberty purple.
