You can't go wrong with a classic G+T, but why not amp things up a notch this Christmas and try one of these three gin-based cocktails? Quick, delicious and very easy to make, they're sure to go down a treat.
You’ve probably had mulled wine or a hot whiskey before, but this Mediterranean today is the perfect winter warmer. Made with the new Bombay Pressé Mediterranean and lightly sweetened with honey and subtle notes of clove, it’s Christmas in a glass.

A classic cocktail for a reason, the French 75 is made with Bombay Sapphire gin, a touch of lemon juice and sugar… all topped with chilled prosecco. Tasty and refreshing. Could this be your new New Year’s Eve drink of choice?
