Christmas gift ideas
If you’re looking for Christmas gifts for the foodie(s) in your life this year then here are some ideas that may help your search!
The Black Book of Gin Cocktails
The Black Book of Gin Cocktails is an illustrated recipe book from Brockmans Gin which is now on sale at a special price for Christmas. The 128-page ‘book of the night’ contains a collection of over 40 exquisite gin cocktails.
Loch Fyne Oysters
Fresh oysters from Loch Fyne are delicious au naturel, or with some lemon juice, vinegar or Tabasco sauce. Not a fan? Have you tried them grilled, baked or fried (Mrs Foodie has had them grilled and topped with garlic breadcrumbs at Loch Fyne Oyster Bar and they are quite different tasting from raw)? Loch Fyne’s famous fresh oysters received three stars from UK’s Great Taste Awards this year. From £6 for 6 oysters.
Create Your Own Coffee Pods
How do we find a coffee we love and make it sustainable? Capsulier has the answer.
It allows you to make your own coffee pods and experiment with your own flavours. Simply put your favourite ground coffee into its reusable stainless-steel pod and you’ll have a Nespresso compatible pod in seconds. The pod lasts a lifetime and will save a person who drinks two Nespressos a day, 7,280 pods in 10 years. With Capsuiler you just need one reusable pod. Not only will it help save the environment it will save you a fortune as well.
Mac and Wild Cocktails
Ready-Made cocktails might conjure up unsophisticated images but these cocktails from Mac & Wild are made in small batches with premium ingredients so you’re getting the same standard you’d expect in a cocktail bar. The range includes: Auld pal negroni, Black Watch espresso Martini, Bonnie Spritz, Dundee sour, Foraged Old Fashioned, Islay Manhattan, and Wild Fizz. Having these saves you a trip to London to visit either of Mac & Wild’s premises!
Magnum whisky cream liqueur
Scotch malt whisky cream liqueur, Magnum, can be spotted by its unique, stainless steel flask, which is designed to be reusable and recyclable. The innovative packaging also keeps the liqueur chilled at the optimum temperature, without the need for ice.
Magnum is also available to purchase online at www.magnumcreamliqueur.co.uk, with free delivery anywhere in the UK.
