Christmas is the time for gathering together and celebrating family, friendship and the season. There really is no better way to do so than raising a glass of cheer – something seasonal and special to warm the cockles. Here are some of our favourite winter cocktails. Just add some thirsty guests.
Made with bourbon, orange and maple syrup this is a real winter warmer and a twist on a traditional whisky sour.

Add the bourbon, maple syrup, lemon and orange juice to a cocktail shaker and give it a good shake
