I was recently given this lovely bottle of Chambord to review for the site to taste- on receiving the bottle I was DELIGHTED, however this is because I had mistakenly thought it was a lovely perfume- the bottle is incredibly delightful and is good enough to be a luxury perfume brand! So of course when I Carefully yet excitedly opened the wrapping and lid I was confused when I saw a spout and not the traditional perfume spritz- but hey at least I caught up in time so to not begin pouring on my neck!

Anyway I was instructed to  make this into a sweet cocktail by simply adding champagne.. not the hardest of cocktails to make and very hard to go wrong might I add but I felt very pleased with the outcome of this sweet champagne cocktail.

This is easily one of the nicest cocktails and could possibly be a substitute for Pimms in the summer after all its very fruity fresh and light.

Can be enjoyed at the races, at the park or even in the garden! its an awesome drink.

Yesterday I had the pleasure of going into Holland and Barrett for a few vitamins and on entrance to the store I happened to see a pretty bottle of Rochester Ginger Beer!
I love the true Jamaican Ginger Beer, I love the fire, the fizz the smell, Everything,  I have to say its beautiful.

So it intrigued me to try this one, plus it was a free sample! we all love samples!

So the lovely man in the shop poured me a tipple and I drank that bad boy down!
It had a lovely after burn that could be compared to “Rum” the guy in the shop suggested but I don’t think it was the case!
Maybe I am used to the burn of ginger beer as an avid drinker of it, but the guy seemed pretty shaken up by it which did make me laugh a little.

The drink is only £3.80 for a liter bottle which isn’t the cheapest Ginger beer drink in the world and you are only meant to have a tipple sized amount which for me, just isn’t good enough!
The lady in the shop suggested using it in cooking Indian food or as a medicine when she has a sore throat or needs to warm up but personally I would just want to drink it with some ice and not mess around!

There has also been the new campaign that has highlighted me to the brand Crabbies, which is an alcoholic version.


I have yet to try it but the adverts have at least given me product knowledge.

Here is a fantastic receipe that you could do to make an alcoholic ginger beer COCKTAIL

GaGa Ginger Cocktail

Get a whole piece of ginger and cut and slice removing the outer skin,

Create 3 small cubes about 2.5cm across and 3mm thick and add to the cup

Add 50ml of Vodka

Add a dash of brown sugar

Ice cubes to chill

Fill with some Champagne of your choice- we recommend Moet or Prosecco

Pour in a tipple of the ginger beer drink


I would say the Rochester Ginger Beer drink is worth the price to have one bottle every now and again it is a lovely drink and I can honestly say

I want that now!
