Try these deliciously easy winter cocktails

What a chilly winter it’s been! And the best way to stay warm? With a delicious winter cocktail, of course! So to celebrate the final month of the season, we wanted to share with you a few of our favourite (and super easy) winter cocktails that have helped us beat the chill. 

Having said that, these delicious drinks can be enjoyed all year round, and we hope you enjoy them as much as we do!

Fiery Apple Pie


  • 45mL cinnamon whisky 
  • 75mL cloudy apple juice
  • Ice
  • Brown sugar to garnish glass (optional)


If using brown sugar (recommended for those with a bit of a sweet tooth), wet the rim of your cocktail glass with some apple juice. Next, spread the brown sugar over a plate and press the rim of the glass into it, making sure the sugar sticks evenly around the top. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice, then add your cinnamon whisky & cloudy apple juice. Shake well until frothy, strain into the glass and enjoy!

Butterscotch Espresso Martini


  • 15mL vodka
  • 30mL butterscotch schnapps
  • 15mL coffee liqueur 
  • 60mL espresso shot
  • Ice
  • Pinch of cinnamon & 3 coffee beans to garnish


Fill your cocktail shaker with ice, then pour in each of your liquid ingredients. Tighten the shaker firmly and shake like crazy until you’ve achieved a really creamy froth (there’s nothing worse than a flat espresso martini)! Once you’re happy with the creamer, strain slowly into the glass and make sure to shake out all that frothy goodness. Sprinkle a pinch of cinnamon, place your 3 coffee beans on top – and voila!



  • 30mL gin
  • 30mL Campari
  • 30mL vermouth
  • Ice
  • Orange peel & maraschino cherries to garnish


For this simple yet timeless winter gin cocktail, the key is good quality ingredients and a fancy glass. Then all you need to do is add your ice, your alcohol and stir before garnishing with your orange peel and maraschino cherries. Tip: for an extra zesty flavour, try squeezing the peel and rubbing it around the rim of the glass before dropping it in.
