The Demijohn News - Recipe for a great weekend

Hold you Horses for our new Summer cocktail!

Recipe for a great weekend

The bank holiday weekend is looming and Summer has officially started. To celebrate we have a new Summer cocktail recipe for you to try called Hold your Horses. Aptly named, this cocktail was created while we exhibited at Badminton Horse trials earlier this month.

Our Rhubarb Vodka Liqueur 20.5% is combined with our Grapefruitcello Liqueur 32% and Elderflower Vinegar to make an excitingly fresh long drink. So delightful is it to taste in fact, I think many forgot about the horse trials during that long, hot week in a field at Badminton!

Find out how to make a Hold your Horses Cocktail so you too can sip like a Show Jumper and get your great weekend started!

Events News

Julian mixes up a fine Vinegar Spritzer in aid of Sobell House HospiceWe have been out and about this month in style. Thankyou to all who came to see us at Badminton, we will be back in 2017 for sure! Thankyou also to those who took part in the Little Clarendon Street Party in Oxford last weekend which we sponsored. Despite a splot of rain, literally 1000's turned out to see the street in carnival spirit with magical music from 6 bands and 4 choirs. Our Vinegar Spritzer Bar raised over £100 for local charity Sobell House Hospice.

We cannot thank enough the hard work from everyone who made it happen and all the volunteer musicians. All our events for the year can be found on our Fairs and Events page.

Have a wonderful bank holiday weekend, may the sun shine and good luck holding your horse!
