Hi All, as stated in title, what drink do you all prefer in winter...below is my Winter Drink (in hand as I'm typing)...HOT TODDY.

8oz Hot Water

2oz Bourbon (JD)

1 Tablespoon Honey

1 Squirt Lemon Juice

It's goin down a treat...😁😁

Is this an on the bank drink or a drink you just have in general in winter? 

If I'm on the bank in winter then I have been known to like the occasional coffee made with baileys or whiskey. That said once I've had one the kettle is always on after that Haha. 

If you mean in winter in general,  then I'll drink anything. Just like I do in the summer.

For me it is coffee, made in a Bialetti, which is of course, not tackle 'manufacturer' branded. I also try not to drink coffee after 6pm as in winter especially, I don't like getting out of the sleeping bag unless it is fish related. Getting up to put boots on and a jacket for just a pee in the cold winter nights is not my idea of heaven.

 

I do occasionally resort to Cranberry and Strawberry or Blackberry and Blueberry flavoured teabags, but have to boil the water in my saucepan as I hardly ever take a kettle now, space saving you know😖😆

Earlier in the year I did go through a phase of one can of Magners cider in the evening.

Adnams and Greene King😉

A few pints of Abbot Ale or Ghostship will do very nicely, but only ever in the pub.

Agree, I'm a cider fan too.

When I was a young lad they did this on tap at the local. It's pretty lethal in higher quantities lol.

They have recently reduced the abv on the bottles of westons I think not quite as mind blowing these days, you used to really know when you had more than a couple great stuff  😁

Ghostship is a lovely pint, even in cans or bottles it is pretty decent, also love the copperhouse gin that's quite moreish

We sell Copperhouse and First Rate in the bar at work. I never really fancied gin and tonic, but these and Strawberry and Cucumber, and Mandarin and Cranberry with the right tonic really do smell good. Sadly because I'm at work not had the chance to try them though.
