Southern Comfort Bard Winter Punch

For all you Scot’s or Bobbie Burns fans, here’s a little something to warm your cockles on 25th January. Created by master mixologist Giles Looker of Soul Shakers, this Scottish-inspired drink has an added kick of New Orleans spice.

Bard Winter Punch

35ml Southern Comfort
15ml Crabbie’s ginger wine
20ml fresh lemon juice
10ml Scottish heather honey
50ml apple juice
Dash of Angostura bitters
Orange peel for garnish


Warm the ingredients together in a pan on the hob (do not allow the mixture to boil.) Add a cinnamon stick for added spice and garnish with orange peel to add citrus aromas.

  1. Good post! I’ve been lucky enough to work with Giles before! This drink sounds very tasty! With the cold I’ve got at the moment I think that this should be right up my street!

    1. Why not give it a try, if it doesn’t clear up your cold at least it’ll make you feel better inside! Happy Burns Night
