Spirits Delivered To Keep Your Spirits High
Winter is a chilly time of year so getting your spirits delivered is a great way to tackle the cold, as sometimes just turning the heating on doesn’t really cut it. However, we a have a range of drinks that will tickle your taste buds and keep you warm through the winter months. Plus, below are some great recipes for making some classic winter drinks such as mulled wine… yum!
We know that sometimes a classic can of Fosters can hit the spot. That’s exactly why we like to keep stocked up on all of our customer favourites. You can choose from a Fosters 18 pack crate of cans, a 20 pack Budweiser crate and many more classics.
You don’t just have to choose from beer or lager, we are stocked up on cider, wine, cocktails, spirits, mixers and snacks! Having everything in one place makes ordering for your winter party much easier. And if you are looking to make your own alcoholic concoction, everything can be delivered directly to your door with The Designated Driver.
Do fancy making your very own drink? A signature cocktail? Or would you just like to make a classic? Here are a few simple recipes for you…
It may sound confusing but mulled wine is simple!
You will need…
- A bottle of red wine
- A cinnamon stick
- Star anise
- Lemon zest
- 4tbsp of caster sugar
That really is it!
Step 1: Over a low heat, cook the red wine, cinnamon, star anise, cloves, lemon zest and sugar for 10 minutes.
Step 2: After 10 minutes remove your pan from the stove and leave to cool. This will allow all of the flavours to infuse and intensify massively.
Step 3: When serving reheat the mulled wine, but don’t let it boil and then pour into mugs or glasses and enjoy!
A Winter Whisky
Whisky lover? This winter whisky drink with a sour twist will definitely warm you up when it is cold.
- Lemon juice
- Orange juice
- Sugar syrup
- Slices of oranges
To decorate (this is an optional step)
Step 1: We would recommend for the full effect that you brush honey around the rim of your tumbler so that you get both the sour and sweet flavour.
Step 2: Make sure your glass is filled with crushed ice and then to a shaker add the bourbon with lemon juice, orange juice and sugar syrup. Then… shake, shake, shake until your heart is content (or you have arm ache). Strain the liquid into each glass, add a slice of orange and serve.
Pimm’s… winter style
During the summer months, we all love a Pimm’s. So, what’s not to say we won’t enjoy a winter version!
This drink really is simplicity at its finest.
What will I need?
- Apple juice
- Cinnamon sticks
- Sliced apple
- Sliced orange
For this delicious winter concoction all you need to do is to combine all of the ingredients together and enjoy.
