Bisschopswijn, meaning 'bishop's wine', is the Dutch version of the German gluehwein, a hot drink for snowy holidays that makes you glow inside. Don't drink this if you have to drive tonight! Each household has its own variety, this is the one my Dutch neighbors used to make when I was a kid in Amsterdam, for Christmas and New Year's Eve.
This is my version of mulled wine.
A classic Scandinavian hot mulled wine served with raisins and almonds. This will surely take the bite off those cold winter nights. Flaming the brandy is optional.
This aromatic mulled apple and rum punch is a perfect winter warmer.
We know it as Buck's Fizz, but the French call it Mimosa. Whatever you call it, this classic tipple is a must whether it's Christmas, Mother's Day or a simple weekend brunch.

Peppermint liqueur has been made at the Cape (South Africa) since before 1800. Very refreshing!
A fabulous festive Christmas martini made with vodka, pomegranate juice and topped up with soda water. You can try topping it up with cava or sparkling wine, if you prefer the taste! It looks beautiful and tastes just as good!
A nice twist on a buck's fizz. My family enjoy this on Christmas morning.
I had this cranberry martini recipe at a Christmas party and everyone loved it. It's a perfect smooth drink.
This champagne cocktail recipe is perfect for Christmas or New Year's. Place in a punch bowl with pineapple pieces, and ladle into champagne flutes (with or without the pineapple, I prefer without).
Crémant, or French sparkling wine, replaces the pricier champagne in a traditional mimosa.
If you find champagne a bit too expensive, you can easily replace a good sparkling wine. This recipe is simple, but it is a delightful aperitif. Perfect for Christmas!
This is a delicious winter warmer. Drinking chocolate, coffee and peppermint liqueur combine for a delightful drink that will warm you inside and out. Top with whipped cream and chocolate shavings.
