Toffee nut syrup

Stir in some steamed milk before garnishing it with whipped cream and butterscotch sauce.
2. Espresso Martini
Some people like it stirred, some people like it shaken, and some people love their martinis caffeinated.

3. Christmas Punch
Christmas punch is a great family and kid-friendly drink for celebrations at home.
Fruits of choice
Blend fruits into a healthy juice or add ice to form a sorbet. Pour it into a large punch bowl
Add cut fruits into the mixture
Stir in some ginger ale and lime slices for a zesty touch.
4. Mulled Wine
The more popular, and also one with a little more work, mulled wine is the quintessential Christmas drink.
Combine wine, whole spices, citrus zest, syrup and simmer until the mixture is fragrant. Remember to not let it boil as that will reduce the alcohol content and affect the taste.
Add a shot of brandy nearer to the end and simmer for another five minutes before serving.
Serve warm or chilled.
