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.
Partridge in a Pear Tree • 20ml elderflower syrup • 40ml brandy • 150ml pear juice • 2 dashes orange bitters
Add ingredients, cubed ice and freeze-dried berries to cocktail shaker. Shake well, then pour contents into glass. Serve with striped paper straw.
Stir together in the glass and top with whipped cream.
Spiced Fruit Cup • 25ml Fruit Cup Syrup • 10ml lemon juice 100ml warm cider, spiced with cinnamon and cloves
Warm the cider with spices then strain and pour over the syrup and lemon into a mug. Garnish with an apple wheel and cinnamon stick. For a great alcohol-free mulled option, swap the cider for apple juice.
