Here's a whisky based cocktail that's great for the winter.

Cocktails aren’t just for summer. Warm, golden and cosy evenings call for a delicious whisky cocktail to chase the chill from the air. 

The Mac Black was specifically created for the colder months by international bar tender Georges Booth of Lo-Jo’ Social, a renowned cocktail bar in Copenhagen, Denmark.
