It’s that time of year again – Christmas is over, the weather is depressing, and you’ve eaten too much and overdone it on the grog (I know I have, hence why the scales are no longer my friend!)
If you’re in the middle of a January detox and are in desperate need of a warming tipple, Bottle Green’s Spiced Berry Cordial is perfect! I’ve always been a fan of their Elderflower Cordial (delicious in vodka cocktails), but the berry version is intended to be enjoyed warm. All you have to do is mix a small measure with hot water and you’ve got a pretty convincing mulled wine for a fraction of the calories.
Filled with seasonal spices, you can instantly smell the cinnamon and cloves. On the palate it is packed with orange and blackcurrant. Delicious!
If you aren’t on a detox and fancy something a little stronger, add a measure of the cordial to hot red wine instead of water. Chuck in a slice of orange and you’re all set for a night in front of the TV, fire, or with leftover relatives.
Available until April, you can pick up a bottle from various supermarkets including Waitrose, Sainsbury’s, Morrisons, and Tesco for just £2.99.
Happy New Year!
