Frosé with Rose Water and Pink Peppercorns

Frosé was the trending summer cocktail in New York last year. I am a bit late to the party, clearly, to only have discovered it recently. It is essentially an adult slushy drink made with rosé wine and I have seen it made with blitzed strawberries and a splash of vodka. I did not want to make it too boozy so my version plays with the colour pink and I made this Frosé with Rose Water and Pink Peppercorns. Most…

Sgroppino

If I can’t get to Venice for New Year then Venice will just have to come to me. And I think Sgroppino is one of the most delicious ways to make that happen.  I came across the drink in Diana Henry’s new book titled Simple – effortless food, big flavours. I love Diana’s recipes and have made a few for the blog, namely Sumac Roast Tomatoes, Lentils and Dukkah Eggs and the delicious Whole Roast Masala Chicken that also appears…

Passion Fruit Cordial

Perhaps not champagne but rather good South African Methode Cap Classique or as we call it “bubbly”. But I am sure you will agree with me that Passion Fruit Champagne sounds much more glamorous and festive as a title for a recipe than Passion Fruit Methode Cap Classique. Few fruit can make you think about hot summery days like a passion fruit (or granadilla as we call it in South Africa). Their season does not take us into summer, it is usually…

Apple Ginger and Lemon Spritzer

Summer is in full swing in Cape Town and this recipe for a homemade Apple, Ginger and Lemon Spritzer will go a long way to refresh and cool down on those long, hot days ahead. Made from scratch with a homemade fresh ginger syrup,  apple juice and fresh lemon, it makes for a refreshing drink that is made with real ingredients not overloaded with sugar. And it is made even more delicious by carbonating it in the ultra sleek BIBO Fizz…

Espresso Martini

A good friend mentioned the other day she can not wait to see what this year’s festive drink is going to be so I am feeling a bit of pressure with this recipe for Espresso Martini. I had already shot the images a while back so there was no going back on my choice for this year. I do think though this dark and delicious mix of espresso, vodka and coffee liqueur is a good follow up to last year’s…

How To Make Almond Milk

This post about How to make Almond Milk comes from one of my favourite shoots of the year. It was one of those “play date” shoots I have with my friend and regular collaborator Caro de Waal where we worked on shooting a range of vegan milk images for my Stockfood portfolio. The creative energy just flowed that day and I think we managed to create some beautiful images which I wanted to share with this recipe for delicious home…
