Let's try another starter for 10: a cranberry classic.

Getting the hang of it? Then grab your tankard, ready for this winter shandy.

Right, let's kick things up a notch. Get your shaker ready...

1. Fill a shaker with ice.

2. Add 50ml Captain Morgan Original Spiced Gold, 20ml lime juice, and 20ml sugar syrup into the shaker.

3. Shake until the surface of the shaker feels chilled.

4. Strain into a tankard over ice.

5. Top up the drink with 50ml ginger beer.

6. Garnish with a cinnamon stick and a lime wheel.

An espresso martini? Blindfolded? Surely not!

For an extra festive treat, take off your blindfold and heat this up when you're done.

Have a big crew to satisfy? Then this rum punch bowl will get the party started.

1. Start by pouring 50ml Captain Morgan Original Spiced and 25ml Captain Morgan Original Rum into the bowl (we've made a single serve here to show you how it's done).

2. Add the 50ml apple juice, 20ml lemon juice, 50ml ginger beer, and 1 dash of angostura bitters.

3. Give it a hearty stir.

4. Place the punch bowl in the fridge for 2–3 hours to chill.

5. Pour into individual glasses, over ice.

Forget candles. This is the best way to make the house smell like Christmas.

And let's close the night out in style with a champagne cocktail.

1. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice cubes.

2. Add 25ml Captain Morgan Original Spiced Gold, 25ml Smirnoff Gold, 20ml lime juice, and 20ml sugar syrup into the cocktail shaker.

3. Shake it.

4. Shake it some more.

5. Shake it reeeeal good in the knowledge you look pretty badass right now. (And until cold.)

6. Strain into a tankard over ice.

7. Top up the drink with 40ml of champagne. Voila!
