New Year's Eve Party Drinks Ideas

lots of champagne glasses


Are you hosting a New Year’s Eve party or gathering? Then, you’ve come to the right place for some exciting and unique drink selections.

With Christmas sorted thanks to’s amazing selection of gifts, let’s focus on New Year’s eve and a time to celebrate with friends and family.

Offer your special party guests something a bit different and welcome in 2023, in style!



Your arrival drinks

Make a great first impression and start the night right with a special New Year’s Eve arrival drink.

Moreish mulled wine

Welcome your guests with something warming, as they step in from the cold. A steaming mug of mulled wine is a traditional favourite, which will fill the room with festive aromas. Buy it pre-made to make your life and the party prep super easy. We highly recommend Jacob Marley’s Mulled Wine (isn’t the name just great?!). You'll find it in a number of our Christmas hampers.

All you have to do is warm the mulled wine through on the hob, and add a little orange peel, if you fancy! …still leaving you plenty of time to get into your party gear.


 The Festive Night In Hamper


A celebratory cocktail

If you really want to surprise your guests with something a little different and very classy, then serve up our Unique Christmas Cocktail – a simple mix of Aelder Elixir with the finest Prosecco.

It’s a twist on the traditional Kir Royale. This new cocktail is sweet and fresh.

The deep purple colour will look stunning on your serving tray and with the rich elderberry flavours, it’ll slip down smoothly – an ideal arrival drink to start off your night in style.


Buy the hamper


Have you heard about Bottle Green’s Bramble Pressé too? It's an excellent, ‘matching’ purple non-alcoholic alternative for your drivers or those who prefer not to drink alcohol. It's one of the star items in our alcohol free hamper - The Joy of Christmas.

The midnight toast

When it comes to New Year’s Eve parties, it’s important to have plenty of fizz, chilling nicely, ready for the all-important midnight toast.

A special Champagne

Why not spend out a little extra on some fine Champagne? You can’t go wrong with a bottle of the ever-popular Bollinger.

However, don’t disregard some of the lesser known vineyards that offer some spectacular sparkling wines from the same region.

Our exquisite Autréau Champagne is perfectly balanced, refreshing and a glowing gold in colour. The family-run vineyard works sustainably and innovatively – a great story to tell your guests.

Take a look at our Champagne and Christmas Chocolates gift set – the perfect party combination to share together as Big Ben strikes 12.

Don’t forget we also have an award-winning English sparkling wine to try. It’s always good to save on the carbon footprint and support local suppliers, after all.

The Woodchurch vineyard produces both a traditional cuvée and a rosé. The Wicker Chiller gift set, with a sophisticated carrier, is such a beautiful gift too – perhaps, the perfect thank you gift, if you are attending a party rather than hosting this year.

Prosecco preferences

If you prefer your fizz from Italy, then Prosecco is both a refreshing and tasty alternative, and a little cheaper too.

It’s perfect if you are hosting a big party with lots of guests, to keep everyone happy.

There are so many great Proseccos available at really affordable prices. If you fancy a real treat, then we highly recommend our exclusive Prosecco Letizia Prosecco Spumante DOC Extra Dry – a delightful Prosecco with hints of stone fruit, sweet lemon and a pleasing crisp acidity. Find it in our Prosecco and Christmas Chocolates gift box - the ultimate combination and the perfect midnight treat.

If you want nibbles, wine and a midnight toast sorted in one go, then check out our Luxury Food and Wine Basket.

The end of the night

The end of the night… When it is time to round off the evening, then enjoy something extra special as the party comes to an end in the early hours of the 1st January.

Hot chocolate indulgence

Whether you wait until your party guests have gone and put your feet up, or wish to offer a sweet treat at the end of the night, you can’t go wrong with a mug of rich hot chocolate, before packing everyone off to bed.

For a festive flavour, we recommend a very special Christmas Pudding Hot Chocolate from Choc Affair, to be found in our Festive Hot Chocolate Hamper. Don't forget the marshmallows

If you've got your own drinking chocolate but fancy plenty of sweet treats, then check out our Vegan Hamper - full of delicious plant based delights.
