Christmas party season has begun!
Here’s a few cocktail recipes to get you in the mood…
Think spicy and fiery, not ‘dull and done it before’ with the Muddy Boots cocktail from Heartsease Farm.
Out with boring old Moscow Mule (yawn), now your senses will be aroused by the floral star anise, spicy tones of Jamaican ginger, the deep warmth from the spiced rum and the slight tingle that is left on your tongue.
Indulge in the perfect party tipple; it’s easy and quick to make, what’s more you don’t even have to get muddy!
150ml Heartsease Farm Fiery Ginger Beer
50ml Spiced Rum
1 Whole Star Anise
Wedge of lime
Method (this is where it gets complicated)
Artistically pour the rum followed by the chilled ginger beer into an old fashioned champagne glass. With a
flourish, drop in the Star Anise and perch a perfectly cut lime wedge on the rim.
