The 12 Drinks of Christmas – In a perfect pairing, Alexander Armstrong and Giles Coren will be putting all sorts of booze to the test to create their definitive Christmas selection pack.
It will be important they get it right, because for Alexander and Giles, Christmas is about enjoying time with their families. Which in their case is each other, since they’re brothers-in-law. So just like the rest of us, they spend much of the festive season indoors eating and drinking and, every year, exactly what’s drunk in the Armstrong-Coren family is the subject of some debate. In this hour-long programme, Giles and Alexander intend to settle this controversy once and for all.
They’ll be looking for 12 different festive drinks they can agree on, ranging from the best Christmas Eve cocktail to the wine to serve with lunch, the brandy to give them their Christmas spirit, a wassail punch and the ultimate eggnog.
