COCKTAILS COURTESY OF THE DUPPY SHARE

The Duppy Conqueror 4
It’s London Cocktail Week! I think cocktails are wonderful things to celebrate, and I’m sure most of you will agree.

Introducing The Duppy Share’s signature cocktail – The Duppy Conqueror. This aptly named rum cocktail means business. It’s a modern take on a traditional rum, lime and sugar combo. Think of a Caipirinha (of the not so sweet variety), minus the Cachaça with a bit more kick.

Wanna know how to make it? See below:

    Ingredients (for one serving)

* The Duppy Share – 50ml
* Sugar syrup – 30ml
* Freshly squeezed lime juice – 25ml
* Angostura Bitters – 3 dashes

    Method

Mix The Duppy Share, sugar syrup, lime juice. Then pour the combo over crushed ice. Add 3 dashes of Angostura bitters, and garnish with a lime wedge.

Enjoy!

MELLO MELON JUICE

image
Calling all health/fitness aficionados, I’d like to introduce you to Mello – the UK’s first and only range of raw melon juice.

Mello (£2.49) is produced with the latest High Pressure Processing (HPP) technology. The HPP process involves skinning, de-seeding and juicing raw Watermelon or Cantaloupe melon at a high level of isotonic pressure. This cutting edge process prevents decay-encouraging micro-organisms and promotes nutritional value retention.

So in short, we’re talking naturally alkaline, low calorie and zero fat drinks. And to top it all off, Mello contains essential vitamins and antioxidants, no added sugar, sweeteners, water or naughty preservatives.

Available at Whole Foods Market, Planet Organic and other independent stores.

Prepare to rehydrate, replenish and restore. Need I say anymore? (Oh I do love an accidental rhyme).

Love, Ms.Rae xo
