Seasonal Sips: The Best Drinks for Every Time of Year

As the seasons change, so do our beverage preferences. Whether it's a hot cup of cocoa on a chilly winter night or a refreshing iced tea on a sweltering summer afternoon, there's a drink for every time of year. Here are some of the best seasonal sips to enjoy throughout the year.



When the temperature drops and the snow starts falling, it's time to cosy up with some warm and comforting drinks. Hot chocolate is a classic winter drink that never goes out of style. For a more grown-up version, try spiking it with some 5 Walla Chai Tea Cream Liquor. Mulled wine is another great winter warmer, made by heating up red wine with spices like cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg. Here are our favourite winter drinks:

  • Hot Toddy: This classic winter drink is made with hot water, honey, lemon, and whiskey. It's the perfect drink for a cold winter night, and the honey and lemon help soothe a sore throat. Turn this comfort drink into an even warmer and delicious treat by making it with Blackland’s Texas Pecan Brown Sugar Bourbon.
  • Mulled Wine: This warm and spiced drink is a popular winter beverage. Made with red wine, spices like cinnamon and cloves, and sweetened with honey or sugar, it's a comforting drink that's perfect for holiday parties.
  • Irish Coffee: A cosy and warming drink, Irish coffee is made with hot coffee, Irish whiskey, and whipped cream. It's the perfect way to start a winter morning or end a winter evening. You can even give it a kick by adding a splash of 5 Walla Chai Tea Cream Liquor!


As the weather starts to warm up and the flowers begin to bloom, it's time to switch to lighter and more refreshing drinks. A crisp and fruity white wine, like Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio, is perfect for sipping on a sunny spring day. For something a little more adventurous, try a refreshing gin and tonic with a slice of cucumber or a light and bubbly sparkling wine. Here are our favourite spring drinks:

  • Strawberry Margarita: This refreshing cocktail is perfect for springtime. Made with fresh strawberries, lime juice, tequila, and a splash of orange liqueur, it's a fruity and delicious drink that's perfect for sipping on the patio. We would advise opting for good quality tequila such as Código 1530’s Rosa Tequila for a touch of luxury.
  • Mint Julep: This classic Southern American drink is traditionally served at the Kentucky Derby, but it's also a great drink for springtime. Made with bourbon, mint, and simple syrup, it's a refreshing and minty drink that's perfect for a sunny spring day. Make it with Blackland Bourbon for added authenticity.
  • French 75: Crafted using gin, lemon juice, simple syrup, and champagne, this refined cocktail offers a sophisticated and delightful drinking experience. It's a light and bubbly drink that's perfect for springtime celebrations like weddings and graduations. Enjoy even more French flavours by making it with the delicious and refined Mistral Gin.


When the sun is shining and the days are long, it's all about cool and refreshing drinks that help beat the heat. Iced tea is a summer staple, whether you prefer it sweetened or unsweetened, with lemon or without. A fruity sangria is also a great choice for sipping by the pool or at a backyard barbecue. And let's not forget about the classic summer cocktail, the margarita – made with tequila, lime juice, and triple sec. Here are our all time favourite summer drinks:

  • Aperol Spritz: This classic Italian drink is perfect for hot summer days. Made with Aperol, Prosecco, and soda water, it's a refreshing and light drink that's perfect for sipping by the pool.
  • Frozen Margarita: Nothing says summer like a frozen margarita. Made with tequila, lime juice, and triple sec, it's a sweet and refreshing drink that's perfect for cooling off on a hot day. We advise choosing a white tequila, such as Código 1530 Blanco Tequila, for a cleaner and crisper taste.
  • Pimm's Cup: This refreshing English drink is made with Pimm's No. 1, lemonade, and chopped fruit and vegetables like strawberries, cucumber, and mint. It's a light and refreshing drink that's perfect for picnics and outdoor gatherings.


As the leaves start to change and the air turns crisp, it's time to break out the cosy drinks again. Apple cider is a classic Autumn favourite, whether enjoyed hot or cold. For something a little stronger, try a hot toddy made with whiskey, lemon, honey, and hot water. And of course, pumpkin spice lattes are an Autumn must-have – whether you get them from a coffee shop or make them at home.

  • Pumpkin Spice Latte: This seasonal favourite is a must-have for Autumn. Made with espresso, steamed milk, pumpkin pie spice, and topped with whipped cream, it's a comforting and cosy drink that's perfect for crisp Autumn mornings. If you are feeling a bit cheeky, why not add a shot of 5 Walla Chai Tea Cream Liqueur?
  • Hot Buttered Rum: This warming drink is made with dark rum, butter, brown sugar, and spices like cinnamon and nutmeg. It's a comforting and indulgent drink that's perfect for chilly autumn evenings. Add a delicious hint of caramel by opting for Ron Augere’s indulgent Caramel Rum.
  • Apple Cider Sangria: This autumn twist on a classic drink is made with apple cider, white wine, brandy, and chopped fruit like apples and pears. It's a sweet and spicy drink that's perfect for autumn gatherings and Halloween festivities. Make this drink even more vibrant by using the delicious Peacock Apple Cider.

No matter what time of year it is, there's a perfect drink to match the season. So next time you're feeling thirsty, try something new and seasonal. Cheers to sipping your way through the year! Find out more about the lovely drinks we offer on our website or visit our blog for more tips!
