Trivial pursuit, charades, pictionary...typical games that will be played around the UK this Christmas. As much as we love tradition, we also love drinking, in particular, drinking gin, so why not try one of our hilarious drinking games (obviously with age appropriate family members!) drink and be merry!
1. 12 days of Christmas
The first person begins by saying (or singing) the first words in the classic song, only substituting the whole "partridge in a pear tree" thing with something they would ~personally~ want their true love to give them for Christmas. For example, "On the first day of Christmas my true love sent to me: "A jeroboam of my favourite gin."
After that, the next player would say something like, "On the second day of Christmas my true love sent to me: two negronis, and a jeroboam of my favourite gin."
You keep going and going through the song (continuing past twelve if you're really good) until someone messes up; whoever messes up first takes a sip.
2. Most Likely,
Not one for the sensitive souls..the game where you get to find out exactly what everyone thinks about you. Everyone sits in a circle and one player asks a "most likely" question, like "Who would be most likely to drink too many G&T's and say inappropriate things to the vicar" or "Who would be most likely to drink someone else's unattended gin cocktail?"
On the count of three, everyone points to whoever they think would be most likely to do whatever act was mentioned. You have to take a fingers width of drink for every person who's pointing at you (so if seven people think you'd be inappropriate, you have to drink seven fingers-widths- basically the whole drink).
3. Mr Freeze
Don't worry, we're not talking about alfresco drinking in the snow...a designated Mr/Mrs Freeze freezes randomly during the party, and the last person to freeze has to take a shot and becomes the new Mr/Mrs Freeze.
4. Drink While You Think
The first person names a gin brand (Batch). The person to their left names another gin brand that begins with the letter of that gins last letter (Batch -> Haymans). You must drink while you think of a name.
5. Wear the hat
Simple but, oh so effective. Place a Santa hat on the corner of your TV and every time someone wears it... DRINK.
