Recipe: Mincemeat Irish

To help Sainsbury’s shoppers and TGtM users get a hit of their favourite Christmas flavours in a single glass, JJ Goodman shares how to create a delicious and simple mincemeat cocktail recipe for you to dazzle your guests.

Serve to guests when they drop in unexpectedly, or at the end of a meal instead of pudding.

I thought it was a really fun idea to incorporate the flavour of mincemeat into a Christmassy cocktail, as there’s often half a jarful tucked away in the pantry. If you haven’t got a cocktail shaker you can improvise with an old jam jar.


Serves 1

  • 50ml Sainsbury’s Irish Cream
  • 25ml Sainsbury’s Cognac
  • 2 teaspoons of Sainsbury’s fruit mincemeat
  • 25ml whole milk
  • Clementine, whole


1. Add all of the ingredients apart from the clementine to a cocktail shaker filled with ice

2. Shake vigorously for ten seconds to allow for some of the dilution and to properly chill the drink

3. Then strain the cocktail into a martini glass or a short glass filled with cubed ice

4. Take a clementine or orange and a potato peeler, zest a strip of peel 3cm wide and 6cm or so long

5. Twist the peel over the glass orange side down to spray the oils over the drink, which will give you an amazing smell as you sip
