Moments of Christmas: Red Snapper
26 December 2018

A good old fashioned Boxing Day enlivener is one of those #momentsofchristmas to refuel and revive for the day ahead.

For country walks or visiting friends you’ll need a go-to-cure for your hazy head. To get you back in the game, feeling right as reign, we’ve crafted a hearty tipple made from a plethora of time honoured ingredients.

Our Red Snapper is the superior cousin of the classic Bloody Mary, made with gin instead of vodka, and designed to put some vim and vigour back in your life.

Red Snapper


50 mls Portobello Road Gin  (buy here)

10mls Christmas Day Gravy

Dash Orange Juice

Dash Lemon Juice

Pinches of salt & pepper

Tabasco Sauce (varying the amount depending on how much heat you like)

Dash of Balsamic Vinegar

3-4 Ice Cubes

Topped with Tomato juice

Leftovers like brussel sprouts, pigs in blankets, turkey and roast potatoes


Cocktail guru Jake explains the secret behind making this concoction “Usually when directing people on how to mix a drink I recommend using as much ice as possible, the Snapper and Mary are the exception to this. You just need three or four ice cubes, and this is one drink you certainly don’t want to shake. The best way to mix it is to pour all of the ingredients into one glass and then pour into an identical one, and then back. This drink will help a fuzzy head feel refreshed and the savoury leftovers will help satisfy those hangover cravings.”

Tip: Make these in a pint glass so you really get to enjoy!


This is where you can let your imagination run wild. Create a kebab of whatever you have left like roast potatoes, pigs in blankets, brussel sprouts, stuffing balls, roast beef, turkey, roast potatoes, roasted parsnips – whatever you fancy!
