COCKTAIL ROUNDUP | The Best Cocktails For Winter

When people think of cocktails, they tend to consider them as summer drinks. Long, warm evenings sipping a mojito is possibly one of the best things about summer. However, when the sun goes down, the rum seems to get hidden away. In fact, winter is the best time for a cocktail! Especially if you get the right one. This cocktail recipe roundup is filled with warming, festive cocktails perfect for those colder nights.

You can’t put together a list of winter cocktails without including an Irish Coffee. If you want to make it even more seasonal then add a little bit of spice in there too! This is a really warming cocktail, that will give you a boost of energy when the winter nights draw in. What’s not to love? You’ll need coffee, sugar and whiskey to make this one. Just stir them all together and add some whipped cream on top, with a little bit of cinnamon for the perfect cocktail. 

Yet another perfect winter cocktail. It just makes you think of Christmas markets and woolly gloves, right?! This mulled wine is something you can make in the slow cooker and leave all day, to get some incredible flavours coming through. If you don’t have time (and want to cheat) you can also get mulled wine spices in the supermarkets. Put them in a pan with some wine - and a dash of rum - then leave to simmer before serving. 

This thick and creamy cocktail has a little bit of spice, and a whole load of chocolate. If you’re looking for something that’s just like a warming chocolate milkshake then this is your cocktail! The nutmeg gives it a nice Christmassy feel and the brandy will certainly warm you up as it gets colder. Oh, and it’s got cream in it, so what’s not to love?! 

Like it or not, it’s definitely getting closer to Christmas. If you want something a little bit unusual to serve to your guests then try this Candy Cane infused vodka. It’s really easy to make and can be bottled up to give as guests too. Not keen on candy canes? You have to try Werther's Original infused vodka instead; it’s creamy and delicious! 

Who said that rum has to be reserved for summer mojitos on the beach? This pumpkin and pineapple spiced rum cocktail brings together a little bit of autumn and a little bit of summer. What could be better than that? It also has a pinch of cinnamon in it, to spice things up a little. This is one cocktail you won’t be able to put down.  

These are just a few of my favourite winter cocktails, although there are plenty more! Which drinks are you planning on rustling up, to keep you warm as the nights draw in? Let me know!
