The Classic Negroni is all about balance and a beautiful ruby colour. Mix 30ml sweet vermouth, 30ml Campari, and 30ml Gin. Pour the ingredients over ice in an old fashioned glass and stir for 20-30 seconds until the outside of the glass turns cold. Garnish with a blood orange twist or use grapefruit for a sour tang! Stir this drink, don't shake it and switch out Gin for Prosecco for an ideal aperitif.
This sweet, salty version on the Espresso Martini will brighten up any winter day! Pour 45ml Vodka, 30ml coffee liqueur, 30ml espresso and 30ml salted caramel syrup into a cocktail shaker with ice and shake. Strain into a chilled glass and garnish with salted caramel seafoam flakes. If you don't have the ingredients, just order them to your door!
This cinnamon infused cocktail will warm you up from head to toe! Place 750ml sparking apple cider in a saucepan on medium-high heat. Add 2tbl honey and a cinnamon stick and bring to a simmer. Remove from the heat and set aside for 5 minutes. Pour 180ml of brandy into a glass and top with some of the cider mixture. You'll have plenty of cinnamon and honey infused apple cider left over to share with others or to pour more drinks. Kids can enjoy the cider straight from the pan. You can even make this drink using a slow cooker on low setting!
Fill a shaker with 60ml Gin and 125ml chilled pear juice and shake for 15 seconds. Add a few ice cubes and shake until well chilled and then pour into a glass. If you don't have a shaker, pour ingredients straight into the glass. Add a squeeze of lemon and swirl round and round with a rosemary sprig. Add a few slices of lemon and top with 60ml of chilled soda water before serving. For a punchier version, use less pear juice and replace the soda water with tonic. Gin Fizzes are traditionally well-shaken to make them chilled and foamy and then strained into a glass without ice which sets them apart from a Tom Collins. Our version is a bit of both.
