    Norfolk Gin iced Norfolk coffee cocktail

    With the long Easter weekend approaching, and the rule of six back in place, I asked my friends at Norfolk Gin if they could recommend a cocktail for this weekend. Their suggestion was this delicious iced Norfolk coffee designed by Sue Telford from For the Love of Gin. With temperatures set to be unseasonably warm the next few days, I suggest enjoying the iced Norfolk coffee ahead of the weekend, as well as during! If you like the flavour of Turkish coffee you will love this iced Norfolk version of the coffee classic. Turkish coffee is traditionally served without milk…

  • Roasted strawberries & the Brasted’s Bramble

    I shall let you into my new little secret – an absolute delight and my new guilty pleasure. Roasted strawberries. And I am sharing them here with a beautiful weekend cocktail sent to me by my friends at Brasted’s – their signature Brasted’s Bramble. The roasted strawberries first… I mentioned them to a friend yesterday , and she was surprised, saying that she has never thought of roasting them. “Do,” I replied. “They are amazing.” Not only are they amazing, they are simple and delicious, and such a good way to use up strawberries that are, perhaps, a little bit…

  • Adnams Pink Gin!

    August 24, 2018trevor44

    What a terrific launch for Adnams Pink Gin! We went to a great event held in Adnams Harleston, and this display was somewhat depleted by the time the store closed at 7pm. I saw many people leaving with bottles of the new gin as well as several bottles of Adnams flagship gin, First Rate. The new Pink Gin is seriously good. Dangerously good, in fact! The raspberry is gentle and takes away any of the tart gin tang, leaving a very refreshing taste. All the Adnams stores are open all Saturday, and I recommend you go and buy a bottle ahead…
