Looking for some vegan Christmas cocktails to enjoy with your guests this festive season? Look no further! This list of 25 tasty recipes is sure to satisfy, with something to suit everyone’s taste buds.
Christmas is a time for togetherness and fun, which often includes alcohol! I’m not much of a drinker myself but I do love a festive glass of mulled wine or a themed cocktail around Christmas time, so I thought it would be fun to put together this list of vegan Christmas cocktails for you to use at your next festive gathering. I’ve used the help of some talented bloggers to put this post together so make sure to show their blogs some love if you try their recipes!
Is alcohol vegan?
Before we get started, I want to set the record straight about alcohol because I get asked this all the time by family and friends! Alcohol is vegan a lot of the time but it isn’t always. This is because some drinks such as wine (not all wine!) are filtered using animal products such as isinglass.
You can have a look at the labels to check if your alcohol of choice is vegan-friendly but if you’re unsure, you can refer to Barnivore, which is an extremely helpful vegan alcohol directory. It’ll let you know whether or not your favourite wines, ciders, beers and liquors are vegan.
