As temperatures drop, our favourite way to warm our bellies and lift our spirits is with a locally produced cocktail (or three). Whether you prefer gin, vodka, brandy, or Earl Grey tea, these cozy concoctions are guaranteed to keep you toasty this winter. Forget the fire, warm up with one of these cold weather libations.
A staple in Italian cuisine is a classic tomato sauce. A truly simple and delicious sauce takes patience and good ingredients. It’s difficult to get really flavoursome tomatoes outside the Mediterranean, especially during the colder months, so our tip is: don’t be afraid to make sauces using canned tomatoes instead!
