Winter gin-spiration


WHEN you think of gin, you probably think of lazy summer afternoons and gazing off into the picturesque distance without a care in the world. Just because it’s winter it doesn’t mean you can’t still enjoy your favourite drink. Here are some warm gin cocktails to serve on chilly nights.



  • 1 part Sipsmith London Dry Gin
  • 1 part Campari
  • 1 part sweet vermouth
  • Berry tea
  • Dehydrated orange or fresh orange slice (optional, for the wow factor)


  • Pour the first three ingredients into a mug and stir. 
  • Top with hot berry tea. 
  • Garnish with a dehydrated orange or a fresh orange slice.


If you’re looking for the “fun aunt” version of a flu juice, the Hot Clements is the drink for you. A delightfully sippable twist on the zesty St Clements cocktail, this tasty winter drink has the added bonus of a sneaky immune system boost. Whether you opt for clementine juice or orange juice, it’s bound to be the perfect winter tipple.


  • 1 part Sipsmith London Dry Gin
  • 3 parts warm clementine (or orange) juice
  • 1 teaspoon simple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • Sprig of mint to garnish (if you’re feeling fancy)


  • Combine all the ingredients in a glass. Stir. Garnish with a sprig of mint.


Can’t stand mulled wine, but in need of a winter warmer? Turn up the heat on a classic favourite and try a Hot G&T. Say goodbye to frozen hands from clasping your drink all night. It’s a G&T in a trench coat – bold, yet stylishly simple. Enjoy all the fun of a regular G&T but with some winter-friendly spunk.


  • 2 parts Sipsmith London Dry Gin
  • 1 part tonic syrup
  • Hot water
  • Orange twist to garnish (for that extra pizzaz)


  • Combine the gin and tonic syrup in a mug or heatproof stem glass. Stir well.
  • Top with boiling water. 
  • Garnish with an orange twist.
