Our Apple Brandy is lovely and warming drunk at room temperature all by its self. However, if it is your fancy, over ice is nice! The brandy goes well with a mixer such as Ginger Ale and it makes a cracking cocktail.
A selection of cocktails follow: Cotswold Pomme Pour 50ml Spirit of Ilmington Apple Brandy, 30ml fresh lemon juice and 2 good dashes of proper pomegranate grenadine into an ice filled shaker. Shake like hell, strain into a cocktail glass, and garnish with a lemon wedge. Grenadine : Dissolve 500 grams of Caster Sugar in 500 ml of Pomegrate (sold in Waitrose), which is 100% Pomegranate Juice. Most Grenadine that is sold ready made contains fruit juices other than pomegranate. Store in a refrigerator.
Citrus Delight Fill a shaker with ice. Add 20ml of fresh lemon, 20ml of triple sec and 40ml of Spirit of Ilmington Apple Bandy. Shake well, strain in to a stemmed glass and garnish with a Maraschino cherry.
