Santa's Little Helper

A perfect Christmas cocktail


This perfectly named cocktail is a great one to have to hand on Christmas Eve as you finish off some last-minute present wrapping. It teams Irish cream liqueur Coole Swan with vodka and the festive almond flavour of amaretto and is so easy to make. Give it a try!


  • 8 tbsp cream
  • 5 tbsp Coole Swan
  • 5 tbsp vodka
  • 2 tbsp amaretto
  • about 50g (2oz) crushed ice
  • Ground cinnamon, to dust
  • Freshly grated nutmeg, to dust


  1. Put the cream, Coole Swan, vodka and amaretto in a cocktail shaker.
  2. Add a good handful of crushed ice and shake until thoroughly combined.
  3. Strain into Martini glasses and give each one a light dusting of cinnamon and nutmeg to serve.
