Where to get the best hot cocktails
Drink: Whisky and malt tea
This malt tea is made from Starward wine cask whisky and a malt barley tea. The tea is made in house from four different kinds of malted barley with a pinch of salt, creating a thin, sweet porridge. Served in a campfire mug for the full winter effect.
Drinks: Auntie Faye’s Cure No.23
This is like a warm apple and rhubarb pie you can drink. A spiced rhubarb and apple syrup is added to bourbon and bottled in individual serves. Each bottle is then warmed in a water bath and topped with a custard. Not a bad way to get dessert.
Drink: Warm spiced Negroni
It’s not a vat of soup in the warmer behind the bar; the tureen is filled with a warm Negroni made from Maidenii classic vermouth, a pepperberry-forward gin, Campari and Chinese five spice. Cider isn’t the only thing you can mull.
Drink: Hot Foot Powder
This Blazer is a rich, hot and spicy blend of rum, cognac, vermouth with a housemade cigar syrup that adds the faintest hint of tobacco flavour. The mixture is set on fire, thrown and finished with a homemade orange sherbert, which adds an acidic effervescence on the tongue that helps to balance out the richness of the drink.
Drink: Hot buttered absinthe
Clarified unsalted butter is infused with mace, clove and cardamom before it is added to a Costa Rican dulce syrup, La Clandestine Absinthe and Mr Bitters Fig and Cinnamon bitters. Sweet tooths can rejoice as it is served with a spoonful of house-made dulce de leche.
Drink: Blazing Glögg
This blazer uses Martell VS cognac, port, juniper and cranberry. This mixture is blazed and thrown and served in a chalice so you can feel like a Viking with a house spice 'tea bag’.
Drink: Spiked Chai
18+ your chai drinking habits by heading to Arbory and asking them to spike it with Johnnie Walker Black and Frangelico. It’s a completely different kind of warming experience.
