Warm Up This Season With Rekorderlig's Winter Cider Cocktails



With the clocks changing and the nights drawing in, there’s no better way to warm the cockles than Rekorderlig’s new Winter Cider Cocktail range, designed to match the rosy glow of your cheeks at this time of year.

Rekorderlig is fast becoming a premium cider for all seasons – and if you missed the highly successful Summer Cocktails earlier this year, this new selection of recipes featuring the limited edition Rekorderlig Winter Cider flavour will more than make up for it! Made with apples and infused with cinnamon and vanilla, the winter warmer is a truly unique ingredient for a delicious cider cocktail.

The cocktails have been specially created by Joel Persson, who has recently been announced as Rekorderlig’s Global Brand Ambassador.  Joel’s award winning mixology talent and passion for creating beautiful cocktails shines through in the unique menu using simple ingredients and methods which can be recreated at home or in bars, featuring a modern Swedish twist on some familiar classics.
The range includes:
Rekordernogg – an alluring mix of dark rum, sweet sherry, sugary syrup and Winter Cider whisked with egg on a heated pan and best served in a tankard
Rekorderlig Midnight Forest – ideally served in a pitcher over ice, this delicious mix contains cherry brandy, sweet sherry, bourbon and amaretto with Winter Cider
The Rekorderlig Hot Toddy – a winning formula of spiced rum, honey, lemon juice and Winter Cider, all topped off with a cinnamon stick
Svenska Mojito – a seductive take on this classic features two different types of rum combined with Winter Cider over ice flourished with mint leaves and lime juice
The Rekorderlig Snow Cap – a warming combination, which is definitely shaken not stirred in its preparation, it features oregat (almond sugar) with red wine, lemon, egg and Winter Cider sprinkled with icing sugar
Simple. Beautiful. Swedish.

Now who says cider should just be for the summer?
