If you’re looking to get away from the shopping and the snow, then celebrate Christmas this year with a dash of island flare with the Dram & Blast cocktail. You may be curled up next to the fire with chestnuts roasting but one sip of this fruity dream will transport you to sandy beaches and blue skies. Mixed with Absolut Elyx, lime and pineapple juice, this tasty concoction will fill you with warmth that can only be found on Christmas Island. The Absolut will have you hearing steel drums instead of sleigh bells, and you might even convince Santa to swap out his red suit for swim trunks!
