Does anyone know of any ready to serve cocktails mixes I can buy online?

There are such a wide variety of ready to serve cocktail mixes to choose from. It really comes down to the types of cocktails you want and how much you can afford to spend. VOK makes a great quality and delicious selection of ready to serve cocktails, as well as a company called Skinny Girl (excuse the name). Google either VOK or 'skinny girl cocktails' to find their websites.

Eggnog - a Christmas favorite, with or without alcohol

Mulled wine - red wine made with some sugar and plenty of your favorite spices (check the site below for a great recipe)

Candy cane martini - for dessert; using berry vodka, peppermint schnapps, white creme de cacao - and if you would like to add grenadine and some half 'n' half then you can take it up a notch

Is there a right and wrong way of building a cocktail?

Yes. There are many ways to change cocktails and update them; however the technique of building a cocktail is crucial. You should always start with the right glassware. Then add ice - all the way to the rim of the glass - cocktails taste best when made with a lot of ice. At this stage, if your cocktail recipe requires any seasoning, you should add it (for instance a bloody mary). Next, you should add the spirit (vodka, rum, etc.), followed by the mixer(s) and garnish.
