We absolutely adore Sakley’s for their varied and exciting winter brunch menus and one winter staple is our absolute favorite - Mulled Wine! Traditionally prepared by slow-cooking red wine over a stove, Sakley’s version was a delightful glass of perfectly cooked wine with lots of cinnamon and cloves and served with a thick lemon wedge for contrast - and we loved every last sip of it! Give it a swirl!

We guarantee you’ve never tried this one before! Made up of copious amounts of smoked whiskey (yay!), splashes of clove bitter, apple juice to taste and smoked candy!

If you really want to go all out and slurp up a truly exotic cocktail, how about the Royal Indian Punch at hip Ek Bar? Served in beautiful little porcelain cups, this one’s a whiskey cocktail is made up with, funnily enough, Kashmiri Kahwa, grapefruit and sprinkled with lots of spices! They even add in sliced ginger to add some zesty winter flavour - must try!
