Cocktail Menu: Winter cocktail ideas

Yellowstone Trailblazer Toddy

While we have just passed the winter solstice, many people around Australia are still rubbing hands, wearing beanies and scarves as they try to beat the cold.

To some (ED: specifically me), cold is a state of mind (particularly in Australia), and by thinking about being somewhere warm, envisioning a warm fire can help let the blood flow and stop you succumbing to the cold. Another favourite trick is to think about enjoying a warming drink while sitting next to a roaring fire.

Here’s some winter cocktail ideas that have been shared with the B&C team, please feel free to send in some of your winter warmer cocktail recipes and we’ll add them here.
