Christmas is an excellent excuse to experiment with some cocktail recipes.

Festive ingredients such as cinnamon, cranberry and mulled wine can be used in creative ways to create tipples with a festive twist.

Channings Bar and Restaurant have given us the recipe for their delicious cocktail the “Reagent’s Reward,” created by their bar manager Matthew Cunningham.

The mix of orange, bourbon, cinnamon and ginger flavours, will make you feel warm and Christmassy in no time.
