Winter warmers

Christmas is just around the corner and it’s getting colder! There are many traditions that come along with Christmas; from decorating the tree with baubles and ornaments, making Christmas treats, visiting loved one – all these things and more are what make it the most wonderful time of the year!

The same could be said of seasonal beverages. There are many cocktails to choose from and as a London caterer we are always looking for new and creative drinks to serve up – what better way to get through this busy season than to experiment ourselves! We thought we’d share some of our favourite cocktails that we’ve tried here at Seasoned this festive season.
