Warm Old Fashioned Recipe

This warm old fashioned recipe comes from Tom and Henry’s Fabulous Baker Brother Christmas Special.

The ultimate winter warmer, a perfect Christmas tipple. So simple to make sweetened with sugar and spice with a citrus twist. The perfect way to get any festive party started.

This warm old fashioned recipe is a twist on the classic whisky cocktail, warmed through with festive flavours of orange and clove.

Perfect with any of our Christmas recipes, a great aperitif or with a mince pie.

During the festive season you can buy our mince pies online. We are selling our traditional mince pies alongside our free from gluten mince pies.

Here’s our spicy mulled cider recipe too.

Serves 4


  • 400ml of your favourite whisky

  • 30ml angostura bitters

  • 1 orange, studded with 12 cloves and 1 piece lemon peel

  • 400ml water

  • 8 sugar cubes


  1. Place all the ingredients into a saucepan and heat, stirring until all the sugar has dissolved – don’t boil as you’ll drive off all the alcohol!

  2. Turn the heat off and leave the mix to infuse for about 30 minutes, then gently warm through to serve.
