3 Autumn Cocktails to Cosy Up With This Month

3 Autumn Cocktails to Cosy Up With This Month

As the colder months approach, there’s nothing like a warm Autumn cocktail to end a long day. Check out the impressive recipe inspiration from Cocktails below, and let mixology genius Klaus St. Rainer walk you through some of the season’s cosiest drinks.

Gintelligence No. 1

“The template for this hot drink is the classic Tom Collins, which is often confused with the Fizz. In composition the two are almost identical; however, the Fizz is served in a prechilled glass without ice and mixed with a shot of soda, while the Collins is served in a long drink glass and diluted with lots of soda. Gintelligence No. 1 got its name because I discovered quite accidentally how fantastic this renowned concoction tasted warm: a crafty drink to warm you up on cold days in fall and winter. It has an even fuller, stronger flavour if you use Dutch-style gin (Jenever) instead.”

Ingredients:

2fl oz (60ml) Tanqueray No. Ten or Dutch-style gin
1fl oz (30ml) fresh lemon juice
¾fl oz (20ml) triple syrup
5 juniper berries
3½ oz (100ml) hot water

Tea cup or miso soup bowl

Preparation:

Heat all the ingredients except for the water in a saucepan or silver pot on the stove and fill with hot water. Place the juniper berries in the teacup and serve the drink in the cup or soup bowl.

Samurai Spirit

“Sake and cranberries are a fantastic combination, particularly if enjoyed warm. However, you need to pay attention to the following: never heat good-quality sake for drinking neat higher than 40-50°C. Only poorer qualities are heated higher because this helps to mask deficiencies in taste and quality. The same applies to mixed drinks with sake, although you can go a little higher with the temperature here.”

Bishop

 

“Some drinks don’t just taste great, but also work simultaneously as a medicinal home remedy. Ginger, honey, vitamins, and the tried-and-true herbal concoction Chartreuse all help you get back on your feet when you’ve got a cold."
