Time to eat, drink and be merry! To help you embrace the festive spirit we are sharing our favourite Christmas Cocktail recipes as well as our homemade Mince pie tartlets. Cheers to a fabulous winter season!
MINCE PIE TARTLETS
Ready roll sweet shortcrust pastry
Organic mince pie filling
Milk for glazing
Roll out the pastry and use a round cookie cutter to cut 24 mini cases, using them to line the bottom of a tart baking tin. Use a star cookie cutter on the remaining pastry for decoration – keep aside for later.
Fill each case with a spoonful of the organic mince pie filling, then place your star shaped pastry on top of each pie.
Brush the tops of the tartlets with milk. Bake for 15 – 20 minutes until golden brown on top.
Allow to cool and then sprinkle some icing sugar on top to decorate.
50ml Shetland Reel Ocean Sent Gin
Fever Tree Original Tonic
Fresh Orange Juice
Served on the rocks in a tall glass add the gin (we particularly love Shetland Reel Gin from the most Northern distillery in the UK using Scottish botanicals), a dash of elderflower cordial, a splash of fresh orange and top up with tonic.
Serve with cinnamon sticks, an orange slice and a sprinkle of cinnamon powder.
A CHRISTMAS SPRITZER
Pour a tablespoon of raspberry syrup into a champagne glass.
Top with prosecco bubbles.
Garnish with some fresh blueberries and enjoy!
