Celebrating citrus season


Lemon and grapefruit trees are the classic fruit trees in our gardens in New Zealand. I'm lucky to have this amazing, old grapefruit tree which is still going strong after 50 years. It has very juicy, sweet flesh with just a hint of bitterness. Really perfect for a simple cocktail with Spiced Honey Liqueur. 

If you have this tree in your garden, you need to try it. Otherwise, get some unsweetened juice from a shop and try the cocktail too!

To make a quick and simple drink just squeeze juice out of 3 grapefruits to a tall glass, add 30ml of Spiced Honey Liqueur, finish with a few ice cubes and splash some sparkling water. 

Keep your Mum warm this winter!
