Spiced Bellini

The perfect drink to soften the blow of autumn onset. This is a sweet twist on a classic drink with a mild poke of spice.

Yield: 3 cocktails

Prep Time: 20 minutes + cool time. If you don't have time to cool the plum mixture use a couple of ice cubes to speed up the process. It's also handy if you store your vodka in the freezer!


  • 60 ml or 2 oz vodka
  • Processco
  • 3 chopped plums
  • 15 g or 0.5 oz light brown Muscovado sugar
  • 2 cm piece of root ginger
  • 6 peppercorns


  1. Add the plums, sugar, ginger and peppercorns to a pan with 100ml of water and simmer for around 10 or so minutes until the plumy mixture has thickened and is nice and pulpy.  The longer you leave it hubbling the more spice infused it will become.
  2. Pour the juice through a sieve into a jug and use a spoon to squeeze out as much liquid as possible.
  3. Add the vodka and if you have the time chill the spicy, plum juice or else add an ice-cube or two.
  4. Fill about half of each glass up with the vodka and plum mix (assuming your glasses are relatively small in size) and then top with Prosecco.
  5. Serve.

    Warming heat of vodka plus silky smooth chocolate equals heavenly, boozy simplicity in a glass.

  • Cosmopolitan

    A Cosmopolitan cocktail adopts just that in attitude by mixing alcohol with alcohol and topping up with just a dash of juice. If you want to intoxify your guests then this is the one to serve up! Short and strong, small sips are recommended to avoid peaking too early in a room spinning, dizzy head, hazy eyes drunken disaster!

    Pure boozy, chocolaty indulgence; these chocolate martin's should be sipped not gulped, especially seeing as they are both alcohol, alcohol mixed with alcohol!

    This cocktail is pure indulgence in a glass. In fact it is so scrummy and filling that it could easily be a desert. If you like your cocktails thick, creamy and chocolaty then a frozen mudslide is definitely a winner!
