Start With A Simnel Cake Sour
Cocktails are loved by one and all, so why should Easter be an exception to that?
Try a ‘simnel cake sour’ that is prepared from a variety of interesting spices. The ingredients that you need to prepare this tantalizing cocktail can be easily found in all the superstores. If in case you are preparing this cocktail for 4 people, you will require 100g golden caster sugar, orange zest, 1 tsp mixed spice, 1 tsp cinnamon, and a pinch of dried ginger to make the spiced syrup first.
Apart from that, you will require ingredients such as 25ml brandy, lemon juice (use only 1 lemon), orange juice (use only 1 orange), 100ml amaretto, 50g marzipan, and ice.
The process of preparing it is quite simple, wherein you need to prepare the spiced syrup first by mixing all the ingredients with 100ml water and bring it to a boil. After that turn off the heat and put the syrup in the fridge so that you can use it later on. While serving the cocktail, you need to mix this syrup with brandy, lemon juice, orange juice and amaretto.
Crispy Layered Thyme Potatoes
If you are planning to serve something that is easy to make yet delicious, then you can try crispy layered thyme potatoes. All you have to do is thinly slice your potatoes and then bake them in the oven with melted butter, thyme leaves and salt. This adds a different kind of flavor to a basic Sunday roast and really compliments the potatoes.
Don’t save this recipe just for Easter though! Once you try this one, you and your family will be hooked and you’ll want this one on repeat. It goes great with a variety of meats including chicken, lamb, ham, and pork roast.
