Hot Serve Alternatives

Why stick to mulled wine this Christmas when you could have one of our hot serves instead? These drinks scream festive fun and there’s not a drop of wine in sight! These cocktails are simple to prepare and are sure to impress your guests. All you need is a hot toddy glass and some wintry spices. 

  • Pear and apple cider

William’s Elegant Gin/ Chase Naked Vodka- 50ml

Willy’s Cider- 200ml

Pear Nectar (see below)- 50ml


Pear Nectar- core whole pears and add to a pan on a low heat with fresh lemon juice, sugar syrup and water (roughly 25ml Lemon Juice, 25ml sugar syrup and 25ml for every 5 whole pears). Simmer for around 20 mins on a low heat. Add mixture to a food processer and puree until smooth. Bottle and Store in the fridge.
