3 Easy Winter Cocktails


So today marks the official 12 day count down to Christmas and whilst I’m still to start shopping for presents I have put together a few Christmassy cocktail ideas I hope you love!

They’re all gin based, I used Bombay. They’re also really easy to make, I had all these ingredients in my kitchen cupboards!


Spiced Pear Fizz

Double shot of Gin
40ml of fresh lemon juice
30ml of pear sugar syrup (see ingredients below)
200ml of soda water1 large egg white
2 star anise to garnish

200ml of water
200g of sugar
1 pear
2 star anise

Directions:To make the sugar syrup mix the water, sugar, pear (cored and cut into cubes) and star anise in a pan and bring to simmer on a medium heat. Take off heat and leave to cool. Once cool strain out the spices and pear.Add the gin, lemon juice, pear sugar syrup and egg whites into a cocktail shaker and shake for 20 seconds or so and strain into a glass. Top with soda water and garnish with star anise.

Hot Winter Gin
Ingredients:
Double shot of Gin
1 table spoon of honey
30ml of fresh lemon juice
2 cloves
1 cinnamon stick
Orange or lemon to garnish

Directions:Add the gin, honey and lemon juice to a glass. Top with hot water and stir until the honey is melted. Pop in your cinnamon stick and cloves, and orange to garnish.

Mulled Apple & Orange
Ingredients:
Double shot of Gin
100ml of orange juice
100ml of apple juice
2 cloves
Pear & orange to garnish

Directions:Heat the orange and apple juice in a pan with the cloves on a medium-low heat.Pour gin into a glass and add the juices and store together. Garnish with orange and pear slice.



Bet you didn't think these drinks would be so simple, they’re fab for Christmas gatherings. I am by no means a gin connoisseur BUT I do love a good cocktail. If I can manage to make these 3 cocktails all without any stress they must be fool proof!
