Sipsmith Gin: Hot Cozy Cocktail Inspiration

Diana Chan November 22, 2018 product

With the winter approaching and temperatures across Canada getting closer to 0°C, what better way to warm up that with some hot cozy cocktails. We have heard of classics like mulled wine, hot toddies and hot cocoa with a splash of liqueur, but have you considered hot gin cocktails?

Gin is great as it has those forward botanical flavours like juniper that speak to the holiday season. Sipsmith London Dry Gin is a great aromatic base for hot drinks. With a twist on the classic cocktail, hot gin offers a way to explore cocktail making when the temperature cools down.

Below are a few recipes you can craft up this holiday season.
