In the winter try gently warming Gran Stead's ginger drinks (either gently in a saucepan, in the microwave oven or even by adding a dash of boiling water).
For a longer winter warmer try heating 1 part Gran Stead’s ginger (Mellow or Light & Fiery) with either 3 parts apple juice or 3 parts orange juice.
Again, ratios can be varied to suit personal preference.
