The days are getting shorter, the nights are getting longer, and the temperatures are plummeting. We might be hurtling towards the most wonderful time of the year, but there's no doubt about it: festive fun is a definite necessity to make it through winter with your serotonin intact.

Intimate pubs, fireside wines, and twinkling cocktail bars become central to our socialising. This winter, Black Cow vodka is stepping into kick things up a notch with its new winter terrace at Sophie's Steakhouse .

For those of you who aren't familiar with the spirit, Black Cow vodka is the world's first pure milk vodka. Made in West Dorset using zero-waste processes, it's a smooth spirit with a unique depth of flavour that makes it wonderful for both sipping neat and mixing into cocktails.

Launching 21 November, the event sees Black Cow collaborating with Sophie’s Steakhouse to bring you the ultimate winter terrace. Embrace the festive season and escape the elements at Black Cow’s festive oasis full of Christmas Spirit .

Taking over the stunning terrace at Sophie’s, it's the best place to stave off the cold with warming Black Cow drinks under cosy sheepskin rugs all atmospherically lit by festoons and lanterns.

The team at Sophie’s have created a special cocktail menu, all crafted using Black Cow’s premium festive serve Christmas Spirit. The Christmas Spirit encapsulates all the tastes of Christmas, with the ingredients used in a Christmas Pudding macerated in the velvety smooth Black Cow vodka.

Sip on cocktails, such as the restorative Hot Mulled Christmas , celebrate with a glass of Sparkling Christmas Spirit or hunker down and round off your evening with the ultimate festive nightcap, Old Fashioned Christmas .

The perfect winter setting to while away the hours, away from the chaos of the West End, this terrace will be the ultimate dose of festive escapism.

The Black Cow vodka terrace will be open at Sophie's Steakhouse Soho and Chelsea restaurants from 21 November-3 January. Bottles of Christmas Spirit can be purchased at blackcow.co.uk .
