The Christmas season is here and I have put together 5 festive gin cocktails to suit all occasions. To kick off the party is a cranberry riff on the French 75, followed by the Christmas Velvet Alexander combining gin and granny’s favourite advocaat, then a sophisticated Martinez, a fruitily refreshing Saigon Cooler and finally, a warming gin Hot Toddy.

Simple to make with no complicated ingredients to hunt down online or in the supermarket.
