Winter Apple Highball
The perfect tipple to enjoy throughout the festive season, this refreshing serve is as simple as it is delicious.
25ml Johnnie Walker Black Label
25ml dry vermouth
50ml apple juice
10ml honey water (1:1)
Add 25ml Johnnie Walker Black Label, 25ml Dry Vermouth and 50ml apple juice to a tall glass over ice. Combine equal parts honey and water and add to the glass, topping with soda. Stir gently to bring all the ingredients up through the drink, and garnish with a thin slice of apple or star anise for an extra festive flair.
A warming Hot Toddy is a must as the colder nights draw in. Using the John Walker & Sons Celebratory Blend – the limited edition marking 200 years of Johnnie Walker – this special serve packs a punch.
35ml John Walker & Sons Celebratory Blend
15ml crème de cassis
10ml lemon juice
1 sugar cube
100ml hot water
Simply add all of the ingredients to pan and warm on the stove, stirring gently over a medium to high heat (be careful not to boil the liquid). Serve in your favourite Christmas mug and cosy up at home.
Festive Old Fashioned
A classic for a reason, this timeless cocktail makes the perfect winter nightcap. With smooth honey and a hint of vanilla, it's a sophisticated serve that you'll make time and time again.
50ml Johnnie Walker Black Label

dash of vanilla bitters
Create your honey water by diluting one part honey with one part warm water. Combine all of the ingredients and stir over ice. Simply serve in a rocks glass over a few cubes of ice, garnishing with a slice of orange. Our top tip; squeeze the orange peel and run over the rim of the glass to release all of its natural oils, adding to the Christmas scent.
