Three Tanqueray No. 10 cocktails for Christmas

There are many great things to enjoy at Christmas: roast dinners, repeats of The Vicar of Dibley, putting up the Christmas tree and shooing carollers with a rottweiler. But most of all, Christmas is a time to be merry. And what better way to be merry than with a nice cocktail?

Any Yuletide can be spiced up with a dash of Art Deco cool – which is why we bring you these delicious cocktail recipes made with Tanqueray No. Ten.

Concocted with the martini in mind, Tanqueray No. Ten has subtle hints of hand-picked citrus fruit, and exudes 1920s class. The No. Ten bottle, meanwhile, draws upon the Art Deco period, shaped as a traditional cocktail shaker that narrows to 10 slim facets meeting at the base, mirroring a juicer at the bottom.

Tanqueray No. Ten has a distinctive profile of chamomile, juniper, lime, grapefruit and orange, giving it a smooth, fresh and lively character. It’s also exceptionally smooth, which makes it a great gin for any occasion.

Below are three different but classic martini serves that are perfect to sip at a festive affair.
