Christmas Cocktails to Master Now

21st Nov 2023

As spring and autumn slowly turn to winter, our tastes also evolve with the seasons. For drinks, that means hot toddies and winter warmers which are a far cry from those refreshing and light cocktails you’ve come accustomed to.  

If you find yourself in need of inspiration for seasonal cocktails to impress your guests throughout the winter party season, you've come to the right place! Our winter cocktail list has been carefully curated by our Cocktail Barman, Paul Gomes, to include seasonal, warming and fun festive flavours - join us at our New Forest hotel in the stunning village of Beaulieu, Hampshire, for a relaxing cocktail in our bar 'The Library' or try the recipes yourself. 

Whether you enjoy them at home or away on a winter break in the New Forest, here's a taste of the cocktails on our winter list:

  • 25ml Amaretto
  • 25ml Conker Cold Brew Coffee Liqueur
  • 25ml Pain d'Epices (Gingerbread Liqueur)
  • Gingerbread man sweet to garnish 


Pour all ingredients with ice into the glass and stir well
