Expecting guests? Here are two brand new Christmas cocktail recipes to make
We like to see the Christmas holidays as one long cocktail hour.
And as good as the traditional drinks are, we also like to try something new when we have visitors to impress. Step forward, the new Christmas cocktails from The Dyflin Bar. Located in the Radisson Blu Royal Hotel in the heart of Dublin city, the bar's drinks wizards have come up with two new festive-themed tipples that are guaranteed to make your Christmas merry and bright.
