Friday Night Cocktail


It's Friday, the weekend is nigh and it's time to toast your two days off with our weekly cocktail. Today's offering combines mulled wine with Martini to sumptuous effect. We particularly like the fresh honeycomb and ginger bread ingredients!

Ingredients (makes one)

75ml spice infused Drambuie

10ml Mandarin Napolean

1/2 lemon

10ml Mayfair Christmas syrup

Cube of fresh honeycomb


1. Muddle all ingredients together

2. Shake and serve cold in a martini glass or hot in a brandy balloon glass

3. Half rim the glass with crushed ginger bread

4. Enjoy!

For an indulgent Afternoon Tea with a seasonal twist, visit Quince at the May Fair. Featuring a mulled wine martini, chocolate mince pies and caramelised chestnuts, this really is a fine festive treat!
