As the big day approaches, it’s time to start stocking up on a wide range of festive booze and food.
And what better way to celebrate Christmas than with a glass of glittery snow fairy gin?
You can get your hands on exactly that at Home Bargains, who are currently doing bottles of Snow Fairy Gin Liqueur made by local booze purveyors Manchester Drinks Co.
The drink turns glittery when you shake the bottle, and according to the label it’s made with real life ‘fairy water’ – apparently fairy water tastes like cinnamon, spices and orange, so it’s pretty festive stuff.
Bottles of the fairy gin have been on shelves in Home Bargains since November 4th – if you’ve already tried some let us know what it’s like – and you can get your hands on it until the end of the year.
It’ll set you back just £8 for a 50cl bottle, so you best be quick, as I’d imagine these will be flying off the shelves already.
You can get a Slush Puppie machine from Amazon and it’s perfect for cocktails
Take my money!
You can now get Slush Puppie’s at home thanks to this machine on Amazon, which comes with the famous cherry and raspberry syrup.
The Slush Puppie machine comes with two 500ml flavoured syrups, the iconic blue raspberry flavour and red cherry syrup. You will also get four Slush Puppie paper cups and straws.
It will set you back £49.99 and has received rave reviews on Amazon, with one user saying ‘I’m so pleased I made the purchase’, and another saying: “This is great. One of the best things I got for Christmas.”
It’s not the only Slush Puppie themed product on the site either, you can get colour changing glasses, Freak Shake sets and even Christmas flavoured syrups including Pumpkin, Gingerbread and Salted Caramel.
The product itself is described as super easy to use, and all you need to do is fill it with ice and syrup to get the perfect Slush Puppie.
There are two settings, coarse or fine depending on how thick you like your frozen slushies.
While kids will love it, I am immediately thinking about the boozy possibilities with this little machine. You really could become a master of Frozen Daiquiris with it.
You can grab the machine from Amazon here.
