Stuck for what cocktails to serve your guests over Christmas? We’ll be picking one a day leading up to the 25th, giving you enough time to stock up your cabinet. Some will be trickier than others but we’re starting with this deliciously fragrant warmed cocktail. It’s available on the menu at Bumpkin but simple enough to make at home.

Gently heat apple juice in a pan. Add King’s Ginger and Amaretto to a heatproof beaker. Pour in heated apple juice and stir to combine. Grate nutmeg on top and garnish with a cinnamon stick.
