Christmas cocktails: Steven Saunders shows us how to make The Snowball and Santa’s Tipple





Celebrity chef Steven Saunders shows Cambridge Independent readers how to make two delicious cocktails served at his new restaurant, The Geranium, in Spain.

Christmas cocktails are on trend this year and something that even chefs get involved with. Greet your guests this Christmas with a super cool cocktail rather than a glass of wine and impress!

Two of my favourites are The Snowball and Santa’s Tipple, both available at The Geranium, where Saiid, my mixologist, makes them in front of you.
