Recipes For Warming Winter Cocktails Including Mudslide

Cicely McFarlane November 19, 2022

Christmas is definitely time for drinks such as mulled wine and hot apple cider all mixed together with cinnamon and spice. However, there are many more festive warming winter cocktails that everybody needs to try; especially if they’re having friends or family round.

Below are some of my absolute favourite warming winter cocktail recipes for you to try!

Sloe Gin Fizz

If gin is your go-to drink on a night out, then this cocktail will definitely be one of your winter favourites this year.

All you need is sloe gin, lemon juice as well as sliced lemon, sparkling water or lemonade, syrup, blackberries, and lots of ice.

Start by placing some sloe gin, syrup, and lemon juice all in a cocktail shaker. Shake until your hearts content and then fill up your glass with ice cubes.

Pour this concoction into your icy glass and top off with your sparkling water or lemonade. Use the other fruits to make the glass as aesthetically pleasing as you wish.

Winter Pimm’s

Pimm’s is without a doubt one of the most popular summer drinks, but why is it ignored during the winter season when it can be the perfect warming cocktail?

Using Pimm’s, Brandy, lots of cinnamon as well as ice, apples and oranges; and a splash of apple juice can make for a warm and delicious winter drink.

Filling your glass with ice and apple juice and then combining the Pimm’s, cinnamon, apples and oranges can make this one of the most simplistic yet enjoyable drinks for all.
