With less than a week to go before Christmas is finally upon us, staff from the bars at Sheffield's premier leisure destination, Leopold Square, have united to divulge how to make their favourite festive tipples in the comfort of your own home.
Sure to warm the cockles and kick-start any Christmas party, here the teams at Cubana, The Botanist, and Bamboo Door, tell us how to 'make it pro' and wow your guests:
Cubana's Sheffield Rum Toddy
How to make your very own at home:
Stuart Curry, General Manager at Cubana, said: "A brilliant alternative to a mulled wine or cider. The spices of the O'Haras shine through the apple to create a rich, warming toddy perfect for fending off a Yorkshire winter."
The Botanist's Home Made Spiced Cider
How to make at home:
Jaime, Bar Tender at The Botanist Sheffield, said: "I love our spiced cider because it tastes delicious, and it's like an alcohol alternative to a good old Yorkshire cup of tea! It warms you up inside on cold days; pair with a mince pie for maximum festive pleasure."
Bamboo Door's 'Rum is for life, not just for Christmas'
How to make at home:
David Pickard, owner of Bamboo Door, said: "This cocktail is definitely our festive favourite. It tastes like Christmas in a glass, uses a range of interesting ingredients and is palatable for all - even those who wouldn't typically like rum."
