Winter Warmers - Three Cocktails To Beat The Cold in the Winter Chalet

June 22, 2021

As the light fades and the temperature drops, it’s easy to feel your enthusiasm for a day out be replaced by a innate craving to cosy up in loungewear, stay in and binge the latest series to hit on-demand streaming services.

But who said winter means slowing down? If there’s one thing we know that’s worth braving the cold for, it’s a day of stellar racing, and what better place to cosy up than at the Winter Chalet (18+) with a winter beverage in hand?

Mulled Wine

With its low-slung roof and twinkling fairy lights, the Winter Chalet is a stylish alpine-inspired retreat in Royal Randwick’s famous bar, The Stables. Located on level 4 of the Queen Elizabeth Grandstand, you can expect sweeping views over the racecourse for thrilling race viewing, live music setting the mood between races, an eclectic winter cocktail menu and memorable menus.

So without further ado, we introduce the Winter Chalet cocktail menu, guaranteed to warm you up this cold season.


Who says cocktails need to be cold? A warm drink on a cool winters day will have you feeling warm, toasty and ready for the action unfolding on the track. And nothing says warm, winter cocktail quite like a glass of Mulled Wine. The combination of red wine, orange, liqueur, sweeteners and spices make this spicy-yet-fruity boozy beverage hard to pass up, with each sip like a warm winters hug.

salted caramel martini

Salted Caramel Martini

If you love the combination of sweet and salty, then a Salted Caramel Martini is guaranteed to tickle your fancy. Think dessert in a glass: creamy Baileys combined with Ketel One Vodka and a drizzle of decadent salted caramel sauce. It’s the perfect way to start — or finish off — a great day of racing in the Winter Chalet.

sloe gin delight

More commonly thought of as a liqueur rather than a gin due to its sweetness, Sloe Gin is made from ripe sloe berries (a small fruit closely related to the plum) and is traditionally sipped in the cold winter months as a warming tonic. Add in Tanqueray, some citrus and our secret ingredient and you’ve got a Sloe Gin Delight.
