The Music

The best way to get your Holiday spirits going? Music.
We’ve gathered some of our favourite tunes in the below playlist. Songs that have a calmer and more sentimental feel to it.
Songs that will help you de-stress and connect with your inner spirit.

The Christmas drink

A team favourite is the Negroni.
The classic version is a blend of equal parts gin, sweet vermouth and Campari.
But for the upcoming holidays, we want to spice it up a notch with some in-season flavours.
