Take the winter atmosphere to your home with these 5 winter cocktails

This year’s end-of-year celebrations will look different for most people compared to previous years. Sitting together at a long table with the whole family or with friends is no longer self-evident. Luckily, there are still many options to enjoy the festive season during corona as well. One of these options is the preparation of winter cocktails/mocktails. The summer season is synonymous with cocktails, however, also during winter such a drink tastes delicious. 

For Christmas and New Year’s eve, you can make it cosy at home with your bubble in front of the fireplace with a homemade cocktail or mocktail. As soon as there is a relaxation of the corona measures, you can welcome your guests with a great-tasting drink.

Thanks to these mocktails, the designated drivers can bring everyone home safely and still have a great party. An alcohol-free cocktail not only looks beautiful, it is also for all tastes. Sweet, sour or bitter; you combine the flavours you want and let your creativity run wild.
