12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS COCKTAILS via Harvey Nichols
You are going to wish you were in London…I certainly do!
Celebrating the festive season in spectacular fashion, Harvey Nichols have been getting a little creative and have crafted the definitive Christmas cocktail list: the 12 Days of Cocktails.
Inspired by the famous Christmas carol, a new cocktail will be introduced to the list every day, inspired by and named after the corresponding line from the popular song.
