Simnel cake sour

Cocktail in glass with marzpian on cocktail stick


Mix up a simnel cake sour and get all the flavours of that traditional bake in a glass. It's a neat twist on a classic amaretto sour with cinnamon, mixed spice and ginger punching through, plus a splash or orange juice to counter the boozy element (including madeira). Add a marzipan ball to garnish if you want to give it that extra special flourish.

Serve with another twist on a classic – our lemon drizzle simnel slice. It's a terrific traybake to match an eggstravagant Easter cocktail...

Elderflower & herb cooler

Cocktail in glass with flowers and ice cubes


Our elegant elderflower & herb cooler is a simple spritz with floral flavours that extend to pretty ice cubes filled with herbs and flowers. A few carefully placed sprigs of rosemary and thyme combine beautifully with the elderflower and rhubarb cordial.
