Massimo, Galway, has launched a new festive drinks menu which includes a Massimo Winter Wonderland themed cocktail list, a variety of hot drinks served in bespoke festive mugs, as well as a brand new seasonal ale which is exclusive to the William Street West bar.
Customers can enjoy hot drinks including Terry’s Irish Coffee made with orange liqueur, chocolate & cream; Hot Buttered Rum made with Havana especial, ginger & cinnamon butter and dark brown sugar; and Hot Pink Gin made with Beefeater Pink gin, rosehip tea, lemon and honey, all served in bespoke festive mugs. A special collaboration with The White Hag Brewery also sees a brand new seasonal ale added to the menu.
The team at Massimo has also created a Winter Wonderland themed cocktail list which features drinks such as the Brandy Snap made with brandy, amaretto, ginger preserve, honey and lemon; the Kandy Kane made with vanilla vodka, Crème de Menthe, milk and white chocolate; the Evergreen Spritz made with gin, rosemary, cucumber, lime, sugar and soda; the Coconut Trifle made with Malibu Rum, Advocaat, vanilla, raspberry puree and cream; and the Mincepie Martini made with whiskey, apricot brandy, lemon, homemade mince pie syrup and nutmeg.
“There is nothing we love more than seeing friends and families get together to celebrate over the festive season,” said bar owner Simon Heaslip. “Whether our customers choose a seat beside our roaring wood-log fire or in our gingerbread house installation, it’s been great fun welcoming everyone in from the cold to indulge in our Winter Wonderland drinks menu. With so much to choose from, we’ve got something to suit everyone’s tastes.”
Massimo recently underwent a transformation into a winter wonderland complete with a Scandanavian lodge and a wishing well (the funds from which will go to the Galway Samaritans).
Open seven days a week, Massimo winter wonderland has a full calendar of events lined up including their annual small business party and a weekend long local craft fair.
