Celebrate With Some Festive Christmas Cocktails

Christmas along with other festive occasions is a great time to treat yourself, together with friends and family, to a lovely cocktail made with the many varieties of Slingsby Gins.
I enjoy all varieties of Slingsby Gin but their new variety of Blackberry Gin launched in the autumn has become one of my all time favourites.
If you favour a warm drink to keep out the cold then you could even try a Slingsby Marmalade Gin incorporating mulled wine and sugar syrup, served warm with cloves and a spiced cinnamon stick.
Another winter warmer is Mulledberry Gin which is a cocktail served warm in a latte glass or mug also incorporating sugar syrup, apple juice, port with cloves and a cinnamon stick.
Here are some of the cocktail recipes for you to try:
25ml Slingsby Blackberry Gin
