Whisky And Wine Spring Warmers For You

By  |  0 Comments

With the UK just out of the coldest snap in five years, here are two versatile drinks you can warm up with to your heart’s content, or else ‘chill’ out in style alongside.

Highland Earl Blended Scotch Whisky Special Reserve 40%, 70cl
Distilled and cask aged for three years in Scotland, this blended offering boasts a malty, nutty palate, with an aroma full of rich grains. Great as the base for a hot toddy (see the Stone’s recipe below but use 25mls of whisky instead), as a fiery flavouring to your after dinner ice cream, or if you dare, throw it over rocks in a glass and enjoy neat as the Scots intended. Buy for £11.49 from Aldi.

Or if you prefer it spicy, herby and hot, Stone’s Original Green Ginger Wine abv 13%, 70cl is a favoured winter warmer, and also the number 1 ginger wine in the UK. Through its traditional recipe spanning multiple generations, this tipple ignites when drunk neat. For a tasty toddy try adding 100ml to your hot cocoa or horlicks. Stone’s is great too when warmed in a pan with spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, orange peel, and a mixer in proportions to suit your taste.

Buy from Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Morrisons and ASDA at RRP £5.00 – £6.50. Also visit Stone’s for more recipe inspiration.
