Drink recipe: Boë Gin Christmas candy cane cocktail

Boë Gin have created this Christmas cocktail to make and enjoy at home this festive season.

Published: December 7, 2020

To make the Boë gin cocktail syrup, add all ingredients (apart from the fir cutting) to a pot and heat on hob until candy-canes are dissolved.

Once dissolved, add fir cutting and allow to cool for approx. an hour.

Using tape, tape your desired pattern onto the glass, leaving gaps where you want your icing sugar ‘snow’ pattern to go.

Place glass in freezer and leave for 10 minutes.

Using a sieve, shake the icing sugar over the chilled glass.

Carefully remove the tape to reveal the snow pattern.

Add measured ingredients to a shaker and shake for 30 seconds before pouring.


Boë Gin have collaborated with Scottish Mixology to create the new Christmas serve.
