Cocktails are life. There is nothing better to help you feel lavish and important than holding a multicoloured concoction in your hand (and they will forever be the perfect addition to any Instagram photo).

Now, two of our favourite things are coming together to make our Christmas dreams come true; cocktails and TGI Friday’s.

TGI Friday’s is an institution. From burgers to wings, to Fridays Signature Chilli Fries; there is something to appeal to the most stubborn of appetites. And now with their 12 cocktails of Christmas, you can eat mouth-watering food while sipping from your sophisticated beverage.

These are classic cocktails with a Christmas twist, all aptly named and ranging in price from €5.50 – €7.95. We challenge you to just choose one.

Holiday Tuxedo

This is a perfect layering of Kahlua and Bailey’s Irish Cream, making it the perfect choice for a Bailey’s lover at Christmas.

Gingerbread Mojito

The classic mojito with a festive twist. This is flavoured with gingerbread and spiced rum.

Festive Gin Fizz

For the pink gin aficionados, this is a Christmas goblet of pink gin and prosecco; along with a dash of cranberry juice, fresh cranberries and a rosemary sprig.

Pomegranate Mojito

A mojito with a fruity kick; Bacardi rum, pomegranate seeds, fresh mint, limes, sugar and a dash of cranberry.

Red Berry Punch

A sumptuous blend of Peach Schnapps, strawberry purée, raspberries, agave nectar, fresh lemon & lime juice, topped with prosecco.

Molten Snowman Martini

Enough to make you melt; this is a heavenly blend of Absolut vanilla, white Crème de cacao and vanilla ice-cream.

Nutty Christmas Coffee

Forget your espresso martini’s; this cocktail is your new favourite coffee blend cocktail. Made up of coffee infused with Frangelico nut liqueur, topped with whipped cream.

Starry Starry Night

On a starry night, this perfect blend of Bailey’s Irish Cream poured over premium vanilla vodka, dark Crème de cacao and chocolate sauce is an ideal choice.

(S)Elfie

A fruity combination of Midori, Crème de Banane, Absolut vodka, fresh lime and lemonade; this is the best cocktail to get an actual selfie with.

Santa’s Hat

Raspberry liqueur and Bailey’s Irish Cream are layered together to taste like a jam doughnut. Is this our Christmas wish come true?

Passion Fruit Bellini

Who doesn’t love a Bellini? Absolutely nobody. This is a twist on the classic; with a fruity blend of Prosecco, Peach Schnapps, passion fruit purée and fresh strawberries.

Meet Me Under the Mistletoe

The perfect romance of Jack Daniel’s and Jack Daniel’s Tennessee honey with pineapple juice, raspberry liqueur, fresh lime & chilli flakes.

Mouth watering already? Treat yourself and the girls to some delicious cocktails to really get in that Christmas spirit because… Fizz the Season!
