Mulled wine is one of my favourite Christmas drinks. Speciality hot chocolates are great, but they just can’t stand up to mulled wine, you know? Maybe it’s because I associate mulled wine with wandering around chilly Christmas markets, looking for odd little trinkets that I think are adorable but the people I’m going to give them to think are pointless, but mulled wine just feels incredibly festive whenever I pour it.
You heard that right – candy corn jello shots! Adorable alcoholic shots of jello with all the colourful layers of candy corn.

Layers of processed sugar upon processed sugar, I’m guessing.
I have been eager to make this caramel apple cocktail recipe for so long now. Thanks to Pinterest, I’ve got a seemingly never-ending list of recipes I want to make and every autumn, this caramel apple cocktail recipe crops up. Well this year I’ve finally gotten round to making it! And now that I have, I can’t wait a second longer to share the recipe with you – that’s how good it is!
Let me introduce you to the first cocktail I ever had – the tequila sunrise! I can’t for sure remember exactly what attracted me to it, but if I had to have a guess right now I’d say it was the colours. Just look at them! Although it’s called a tequila sunrise, the colours make me think of the sun setting at the beach after a long lazy summer day. What do you think?
I’m so glad I can finally tell you this. It’s been a long time coming, but at last I can 100% say that I will soon be releasing a cocktail book! The whole thing has been written up, all the recipes tested and all the photos taken. I’ve just got a few little tweaks to make before it’s published and ready to share with the world!
