The colours of this cocktail may easily make you think it’s not as strong as other options, but the addition of Bombay Sapphire gin will take care of that. The combination of blackberries, juniper berries, lemons and sprigs of rosemary creates a fruity flavour profile that offers the perfect contrast to the gin and soda water. Here’s the recipe.
7. Mulled wine
You can’t have a Christmas house party without mulled wine and this recipe will make your house smell like Christmas as you’re making it. If you don’t have a lot of time to spare for preparations, you can use the Thermos® Shuttle Chef® for added convenience, allowing your brew to continue simmering and freeing you up to spend more time with family and friends.
