The festive period of 2020 is certainly going to look different but that doesn't stop you from enjoying a cocktail with a Christmas twist, the only difference is, you have to make it yourself.

Christmas Cocktails

Cocktails are one of our favourite things to try when we travel and as we are doing less of that at the moment, it's time to bring the Christmas cocktails to life at home.

Although we love mulled wine, sometimes it's fun to spice things up which is why we've come up with 3 cocktails with a festive twist.
