Tropical Ginger Crush

Tropical Ginger Crush Why is ginger such a great flavour that goes with pretty much anything? I love pretty much anything with ginger in it like a tropical ginger crush to cool you down in warm weather, when London decides to get some. For me if a drink has ginger in it, it HAS to pack a punch and kick A*S otherwise what is the point it being there. I love drinking ice cold ginger beer (the soft drink kind) with a splash of rum or blitzing the fresh root into smoothies or sauces for curries.Tropical Ginger CrushGinger is found in many forms in my house; tea, powdered, paste, frozen, fresh, crystallised, stem  and is usually always the go to ingredients for colds. I recently picked up a bottle of belvoir ginger cordial. I usually grab a bottle of the elderflower version, so fruity and floral, so I couldn’t wait to try the ginger version. The cordial alone is sooo full of fiery ginger flavour that really packs a punch and is good on it’s own, but I decided to kick it up a notch by adding tropical flavours to create a tropical ginger crush.Tropical Ginger Crush Fresh pineapple, mango, lime juice is blended together to make a smooth puree. Passion fruit pulp is added and shaken with the fiery ginger cordial. The fruity mixture is poured over crushed ice and topped with lemon and lime soda. The tropical ginger crush is then garnished with pineapple, mint sprig and seriously hard to find glace cherry with the stem.

Hazelnut Raspberry Brownie Silk Pie

Hazelnut Raspberry Brownie Silk PieThere is no better combination in my opinion than chocolatey nutella and tangy raspberries. Previously I made a nutella raspberry etremet  and I’ve combined these two flavour combos again in this hazelnut raspberry brownie silk pie. To be fair this hazelnut raspberry brownie silk pie isn’t ‘exactly’ a pie. Nor is it a cake or a cheesecake. Continue Reading

Berry Margarita Semifreddo

Berry Margarita SemifreddoDesserts with alcohol for me is the best thing in the world in my opinion. I mean why do we have to choose between dessert and a cocktail when we can have both? Not that I’m not going to have a cocktail with the dessert though! Berry margarita semifreddo is summer waiting to happen. Tangy booze laced dessert with a sweet and salty edge just like a berry margarita.Berry Margarita Semifreddo
