Celebrate the festive season with a mince pie old fashioned

This is set to be your new favourite festive cocktail (Picture: Brewdog)

We’re all partial to a warming mulled wine at this time of year, but what if you want something a little different?

A Christmas cocktail with a twist may be the answer, and there is nothing more quintessentially Christmas than a mince pie.

So why not combine it with booze?

The mince pie old fashioned is the perfect way to get a hit of festive flavour, while raising a toast to the most wonderful time of the year.

This cocktail is the dreamy concoction of Rich Woods, founder of Lost Property Office bar – and he’s not gatekeeping the recipe.

Here’s how to make it at home.

To get the mince pie infused alcohol:

  1. Add 250ml of Bourbon or scotch whisky into a sealable, non-reactive container and mix in 100g of mince pie filling
  2. Seal and place in the microwave on medium for 2 minutes
  3. Remove and mix the ingredients. Replace the lid and heat for a further 2 minutes
  4. Remove from the microwave and allow to cool, before placing in the fridge for 2 hours
  5. Place a funnel into a clean bottle and line with a coffee filter. Drain the liquid, ensuring the mincemeat is left behind

For the finishing touches:

  1. Pour 60ml of the infused cocktail into your desired old fashioned glass with 15ml of scotch whisky
  2. Fill with ice and stir well until chilled and diluted. Serve
