5 Winter Cocktails For Every Gentleman

This weekend we’re due snow and temperatures dropping to -1 degree Celsius (in the UK this is cold though we appreciate that we have readers from chillier areas of the world) and many of you will be heading out for drinks with friends, parties, meals and family occasions. However, the cold weather might mean that frosty beer or gin & tonic might not hit the spot, so we’ve put together 5 winter cocktails that are both stylish and perfectly suited to the colder temperatures of the winter nights ahead.

The Maple Leaf

If we’re honest, there’s very little that can’t be made better without the simple addition of maple syrup. Bacon, pancakes, waffles and, in this case, whiskey. The maple leaf is a simple yet classic drink that is a whiskey sour with the plain sugar syrup swapped out for maple syrup. This adds a sweet and smokey taste to the cocktail and nicely complements the bourbon. Definitely one for those with a sweet tooth.


  • 2 ounces bourbon
  • 1/2 ounce pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 ounce lemon juice
  • 1 cinnamon stick
