Buckfast have created the 'Buckfast bellini', just in time for Christmas

Nana, may I interest you in Prosecco with a dash of Bucky on this fine Christmas morn?

IT’S NO SECRET that Buckfast tonic wine is beloved of people all over the UK and Ireland. This love has produced several interesting cocktails, from the Buckfast mojito:

To the ‘Tonic Boom’ which sounds like a lot, frankly:

This morning, the official Buckfast Twitter account unleashed a Christmassy cocktail called the Velvet Elvis, or as we’d prefer to call it, the Buckfast bellini.

A Velvet Elvis is more commonly made with Jack Daniel’s, raspberry liquer, and 7Up, but Buckfast’s version requires much less work.

Just pour a glass of prosecco or cava, chuck in a thimbleful of Buckfast, and you’ve got yourself a nice wee drink for Christmas day.

It would be a delicious accompaniment your Buckfast Christmas pudding (yep, that exists too), we’d imagine. Merry Buckmas!
