Cocktail Menu: Winter Cocktails inspired by Warner’s Christmas Cake Gin

Warners Christmas Cake Gin

Christmas in July is a much-loved Australian tradition, as we try to replicate the cold Christmas fun enjoyed by so many people in the Northern Hemisphere.

To be fair, even in July we don’t anywhere near what many in the northern half of the planet experiences, but regardless we can still get some nice winter warner cocktails on the menu.

Gin might not be the first spirit that springs to mind when crafting a winter cocktail list, but thanks to our friends from Warner’s Distillery in the UK, that is all about to change with their Christmas Cake Gin.

The process for making the Warner’s Christmas Cake Gin is pretty complex, so it’s probably best told by the man himself, Founder of Warner’s Gin, Tom Warner. Under the video, we have a couple of recipe ideas for your Christmas in July menus.
