Sip the festive juice with Bristol Syrup Co

This month we’re stocking up on Bristol Syrup Co flavours and having a go at shaking our own Christmas concoctions at home

The creativity of Bristol’s mixologists never fails to amaze us – one case in point being brilliant Bristol Syrup Co, which has just launched with a range of 17 cocktail syrups and award-winning local bartenders Danny Walker and Dee Davies at the helm. With all those swanky drinks parties lining up on the December horizon, here they share a few top tipple ideas.
