Winter has well and truly arrived!

Between the cold and the rain, we've been feeling the chill, so we're really looking forward to relaxing in front of the fire this weekend.

With that said, just because we're not going out doesn't mean we don't want to indulge in a cocktail or two over the weekend! We have two recipes for winter cocktails from the mixologists at the Radisson Blu Royal Hotel that are sure to do the trick – the perfect tipple for a cosy night in.

Check out the two delicious recipes below.
