I don’t know about you but Opies Fruits with Alcohol have over the years become part of my festive tradition. Enjoying them with cream or with drinks puts me in a right festive mood. They make awesome gifts too, because they can be so versatile.
For 2020 Christmas, Opies is adding to its Fruits with Alcohol collection, three new delicious treats: Red Berries steeped in syrup infused with Pink Gin, Figs steeped in syrup infused with Luxardo® Dark Rum, and Apricots steeped in syrup infused with The Famous Grouse® Blended Scotch Whisky.
A closer look …
Red Berries steeped in syrup infused with Pink Gin
They had me at Red Berries steeped in syrup infused with Pink Gin so let’s take a closer look.
It contains a combination of redcurrants, raspberries, and sour cherries infused with delicate pink gin; and has back notes of juniper which is a season favourite.
The Red Berries steeped in syrup infused with Pink Gin and the red berries makes a classic gin & tonic less boring and can be put in a boozy ice-cream sundae.
Or if you’re like me, you can simply scoop spoonfuls into your mouth which is exactly what I did while writing this. It’s delicious and has the right amount of boozy kick.
Figs with Dark Rum
I’ve never been a fan of figs but I’m always happy to revisit an opinion which is what I did with this combination of Figs with Dark Rum.
It’s the juiciest of figs steeped in the finest Luxardo® dark rum. It’s rich, spicy, and very decadent. It’ll definitely elevate a Christmas pudding and make Dark & Stormy cocktails even more delicious.
Apricots steeped in syrup infused with The Famous Grouse® Blended Scotch Whisky
Finally, there are Apricots steeped in syrup infused with The Famous Grouse® Blended Scotch Whisky, it’s a mouthful but another one I couldn’t keep my spoon away from.
Apricots have sure gone up in esteem in my eyes because these are sweet and soft, and the combination of flavours is simply sublime!
As always these Opies Fruits with Alcohol can be used in drinks and recipes, and make excellent festive gifts. I’ve put them on my Christmas wish list.
Opies Fruits with Alcohol and the entire Opies range are available at Asda, Tescos, Waitrose, and most supermarkets nationwide.
