    Pomegranate & Rosemary Gin Fizz

    Brightly refreshing fruity flavours with an aromatic twist, that glows like a jewel.

     

    You will need:

    • 60ml Gin
    • 30ml Pomegranate Juice
    • 2 Teaspoons Lemon Juice
    • Soda water
    • Rosemary springs and a sprinkle of pomegranate jewels

     

    Method:

    • Add the Gin, pomegranate and lemon juice into a shaker with a few cubes of ice
    • Shake well, then strain over ice into a beautiful glass
    • Garnish with the rosemary sprig and a sprinkle of pomegranate jewels for a final flourish

     

    Moscow Mule

    It’s not from Moscow, and it contains no mules – but it surely does have a heck of a kick!

     

    You will need:

    • 50ml Vodka
    • 120ml Ginger Beer
    • 1 dash Bitters (optional)
    • Lots of Ice
    • Slice of lime to serve

     

    Method:

    • Simply pour all of the ingredients into your traditional Moscow Mule Mug, stir and enjoy with a lime garnish. Any standard sized tumbler will work just as well, if you don’t happen to have a Moscow Mule Mug.

     

    Mojito

    From the sun kissed beaches of Cuba, right in your own home - this refreshing cocktail is sure to get any party started!  We even have a handy Mojito set with everything you need to get the party off with a bang! 

     

    You will need:

    • 60ml White Rum
    • 1 Lime (or 60ml lime juice)
    • 1 Teaspoon Icing Sugar
    • 4 Mint Leaves
    • Soda Water
    • Ice
    • Mint sprig & slices of lime to garnish

     

    Method:

    • Place mint leaves and icing Sugar in the bottom of a cocktail shaker and muddle to release the oils from the leaves
    • Fill the shaker with ice, then add the rum and lime juice
    • Shake well and pour into an ice filled tumbler
    • Top up with Soda Water and garnish with mint springs and a slice of lime

     

    Vitamix Eggnog

    Velvety, creamy and totally luxurious – best enjoyed with your feet up, in front of a roaring fire, with loved ones.

    You will need:

    • 4 Eggs
    • ½ Cup White Sugar
    • ½ Cup Rum (or less, or more – to taste!)
    • 4 Cups Milk
    • 1 Tablespoons ground nutmeg

     

    Method:

    • Blend the eggs, sugar and rum in a blender (such as the Vitamix) on high, until a thick custard forms – this will take around 4 minutes
    • Add the milk and nutmeg – blend on medium until well mixed, around 2 minutes, then increase the speed to high for 1 minute to finish
    • Chill in the fridge for a few hours before serving
    • Serve with a little sprinkle of nutmeg for a final flourish

     

    This recipe will work perfectly in any blender, but in a conventional blender the egg will not be cooked as a Vitamix does, therefore it is not recommended to serve to those at risk from consuming raw eggs. (Pregnant women, small children the elderly & infirm)
