Welch's names the winner of our blogger cocktail challenge
We recently challenged a selection of
top food, drink and lifestyle bloggers to create their own Welch’s Temperance Cocktail
recipe (a cocktail, but without the alcohol), based on those created for us by
expert mixologist Dre Masso. After lots of taste testing at Welch’s HQ, Denise
Grayson of The Swelle Life (www.theswellelife.com) has been
named the lucky winner.
Denise’s Perfumed Grape & Raspberry Limeade mixes Welch’s White Grape & Raspberry with rose water and lime to create a beautifully sweet and delicate flavour. Served in a martini glass with a rose petal garnish, the finished cocktail looks as good as it tastes.
Welch's White Grape & Raspberry
of 1 lime
tsp rose water
Method: Shake fresh lime juice with White Grape & Raspberry over ice. Strain into glass. Top with sparkling water and drizzle with rose water.
On creating the Perfumed Grape & Raspberry Limeade Denise says, “First, the sweetness of the white grape balances the tartness of raspberry and lime so added sugar isn't necessary; second, the rose water adds a delicate flavour to the blend and lightly scents the drink. A martini glass was chosen to deliver the perfume and to show it at its best. This cocktail is also delicious as a still version - just omit the sparkling water and increase the Welch's to 150ml.”
We love the recipe and hope you manage to give it a try. Let us know what you think on Facebook (www.facebook.com/welchsuk) and Twitter (www.twitter.com/Welchs_UK)!
