Those travelling to and from Leeds via LNER can now enjoy the new blood orange Christmas Cosmo onboard the train. The cocktail has been handcrafted exclusively for LNER by Tom Savano, and includes “zesty” lime, cranberry and “crisp” vodka.

According to the train operator, the festive flavours make it “the perfect tipple” for your travels this winter. And for those looking for something warming, there will also be “comforting” apple and sweet cinnamon tea onboard produced by Taylors of Harrogate.
