The goodness of ginger is known to all and during monsoons it makes for an ideal flavour for our senses to cope with. Not just that, this weekend it’s time to gear up for the approaching Wimbledon matches starting this Monday. As you plan on a get together with your pals to discuss Federer Vs Nadal wins, we suggest some flavourful accompaniments to stir up. Yes, because it’s after all that time of the weekend to call it in, scream, shout and give it all you got.
Here’s what we are vying to get our hands on...
The Hennessy Ginger

Wondering what to do with a Pitcher sitting in your mini bar at home? The answer is simple...

Add all ingredients to a pitcher filled with ice. Follow this by topping it with sparkling wine and garnish with wheels of Grapefruit. Sounds exotic? Ditto!
This cocktail is silky and smooth in the mouth. Do you enjoy that kind of cocktail? If yes, then whip up this lovely cocktail to miss your dessert for this one. If you haven’t tried Nectar D’Or, it’s definitely time to do so.
As if on a journey of discovery, the palate travels from the freshness of white fruit through to the darker richness of dried sultanas to a complementary warm, spicy and nutty finish of the Nectar D’Òr.

So, what’s your favourite spirited cocktail? No matter what it is, we are sure that it will leave you in ‘high’ spirits. Just let the good times roll and make the most of the rainy weekend.
