Who doesn't love a good cocktail at Christmas?
Hey guys, my dear friend Helen Maggs aka 'Cocktail Queen of Mount Tamborine' has outdone herself with a gluten-free cocktail recipe for us all just in time for Christmas. I reached out a little while ago to Helen to come up with an awesome Gluten-Free cocktail for us all. Navigating the world of gluten-free alcohol can be somewhat confusing at the best of times, let alone coming up with a gluten-free cocktail recipe for what I think is the best holiday season of the year!
Below is the link & instructions to the 'How to make the Pink Peppermint Christmas Cocktail', - the 'How to Make Candy Cane Infused Vodka' & 'How to make the Vanilla Syrup' videos on Youtube.
In case you are wondering, the White Creme De Cacao is Gluten Free, as she emailed the VOK company to check just to take extra special care of us.
