There’s no need to leave your favourite margarita behind when the seasons change. For a wintery take on this citrusy summer special, try combining Cointreau, lime juice and grapefruit juice.

James Bond-inspired, this concoction of sweet and sour is perfect for a winter’s evening. Combine gin, vodka and vermouth and finish by adding a slither of lemon peel. Simple, classy, perfection!

This warming twist on the Italian classic Aperol spritz will transport you to the snow capped Dolomites. In a saucepan simply combine Aperol, white wine, and apple juice and heat until steaming. Slowly pour into your favourite cocktail glass, finish with a sweet garnish and voilà!
Make like the Italians and add the negroni to your winter drinks repertoire. Create this unique bitter cocktail by combining gin, Campari, sweet vermouth and ice cubes in a shaker. Garnish with a slice of orange./p>
