A Sustainable Christmas Cocktail Recipe from The Boiler House Bar!

Oh, the weather outside is frightful… but the drinks are so delightful! Christmas cocktail-sipping is one of the joys of the festive season for many of us. Here at The Boiler House, we are no strangers to the merriment a high-quality tipple can bring (minus the teetotalers). Especially if made responsibly, there’s something very satisfying in being able to serve your party guests an eco-chic, sustainable drink!

The three musketeers of a sustainable cocktail are:
1. sustainably-produced alcohol
2. seasonal ingredients and garnishes
3. re-purposed serving ware

For a refreshing, festive and eco-delish drink, look no further than to the Apple- Cranberry Moscow Mule Punch. It has won our hearts and palates as our favourite seasonal libation. Easy to make and super-sustainable, when made with locally-sourced ingredients, of course.

Prep time: 5-7 minutes Serves: 4


200 ml Vegan Vodka (we love Jelley’s Organic)
500 ml Sparkling Apple Juice or Juiced Apples
4 Limes
1 Apple
Fresh Cranberries
Fresh Rosemary
Pink Peppercorns
Cinnamon sticks

  • Step 1: Juice the limes and set aside.
  • Step 2: With a pestle, crush a handful of cranberries with a couple of rosemary leaves and pink peppercorns. Add to a glass, copper mug or repurposed glass jar filled with ice.
  • Step 3: Pour the vodka, the sparkling apple juice and the lime juice in your container of choice. Gently stir to combine.
  • Step 4: Garnish with apple or lime slices, fresh cranberries, cinnamon sticks and a sprig of fresh rosemary. Sit down, relax and enjoy. Cheers!

    Hey would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using?

    I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a hard time
    choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and
    I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    Appreciating the hard work you put into your site and in depth information you provide. It’s great to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same out of date rehashed information. Great read! I’ve saved your site and I’m adding your RSS feeds to my Google account.

    I enjoy you because of your whole work on this blog. My daughter loves engaging in research and it’s really simple to grasp why. Most people know all of the compelling way you give vital items by means of the web blog and invigorate participation from the others on that subject matter while our own girl is always discovering a whole lot. Take pleasure in the remaining portion of the year. You’re carrying out a powerful job.
