If you like your drinks fruity and with a twist of ginger spice, then this is possibly it. A simple aperitif that will be hard not to keep sipping.

Ingredients

Preparation

This is a short sipping drink, so choose a generous sized tumbler glass.

Sip slowly with friends and raise a toast to The Highlanders!

So when drinking this cocktail please raise a toast to those brave men and women of The Highlanders who serve for us.

The Royal Rhubarb and Ginger Cosmopolitan Cocktail

This would be a deliciously fun cocktail to drink at any wedding reception, especially a Royal Wedding reception. This drink champions the union of an American classic with home grown British rhubarb and a touch of ginger, to give it some heat! 

Ingredients

Preparation

Fill a Champagne Coupe or Martini glass with ice to cool the glass. Add your ingredients along with lots of ice to your cocktail shaker. Shake the mixture hard for around 10 to 15 seconds.

Midsummer Muddle Cocktail Set We invented our Midsummer Muddle Cocktail on a Summer evening in June when we needed a special drink to celebrate with friends. Having rained all day and with just 20 minutes prior to the first guests arriving at 6pm, the sun finally came out. We decided it was time to be brave and create a new cocktail drink for the new Summer conditions and moved the whole party outside into our garden. Our Midsummer Muddle Cocktail was born, and what a drinks party it was!

You can purchase the drinks as our Midsummer Muddle Cocktail Set as pictured.
