If spending the festive season stuck behind bars sounds like an awful idea, you clearly haven't been to Alcotraz. Don an orange jumpsuit and head to Covent Garden or Shoreditch for bespoke cocktails and seasonal sips made from a bottle of your own favourite booze.

Neverland's Winterland is a slice of Alpine paradise bringing plenty of festive cheer to South London. Craving a Christmas cocktail? Check out their Moose Bar and pair your findings with their signature fondue bowls before hitting the skittles, table tennis, and beer pong.

Cosy up in one of Skylight's heated igloos and enjoy a selection of wintertime treats, from sharing raclette to mulled wine and cider. Boasting its very own ice rink, as well as panoramic views of the city, this is the perfect festive spot to enjoy a tipple - we recommend the Jalisco Sky; a marshmallow-infused tequila concoction.

We've had figgy pudding-inspired The Fig Poppa, festive brunch dishes, stonking seasonal set menus... and now? Dirty Bones is back with the same mouthwatering chow and a few themed cocktails to wash it all down. Our pick has got to be this cranberry-fuelled Vixen.

West London's cosiest flat, The Little Yellow Door will be getting a giant yuletide makeover this December, complete with Christmas trees and tinsel galore. But the festivities don't stop there; the menu will also be gaining a few new additions, including the mince pie rum sour - a zesty sip served alongside a teeny-tiny mince pie - a drink worthy of the big guy himself.

The expert mixologists at Maison Bab have teamed up with Grey Goose vodka this festive season to create a mince pie inspired sip. A punchy concoction of vodka, mince pie infusion (made with apple, cloves, orange, honey and cinnamon) and prosecco, this gorgeous cocktail will have you feeling merry and bright in no time at all.
