Everybody loves the sunshine…

This raspberry flavoured cocktail has been provided by Taste Lancashire Producer of the year – Brindle Distillery. Using their very own Cuckoo Sunshine Gin, this recipe is easy to follow and creates a sweet yet fruity drink for you to enjoy.


  • 50ml Cuckoo Sunshine Gin
  • 25ml Lemon Juice
  • 25ml Raspberry Puree
  • 25ml Egg White
  • 12.5ml Sugary Syrup
  • 1 Raspberry


  1. Fill a coupe glass with ice to cool.
  2. Pour all of the ingredients (without ice) into a cocktail shaker and shake for 5 seconds.
  3. Add ice and shake again, this time for 10 seconds. The egg white works as an emulsifier, giving the cocktail a cloudy head (vegan alternatives are available).
  4. Strain into the coupe glass and garnish with a single raspberry.

Rum Punch by Moor Hall – Serves 6

“One of sour, two of sweet, three of strong, four of weak.” That is, one part lime juice, two parts sweetener, three parts rum (preferably from Barbados) and four parts water.

Moor Hall's take on this classic uses tea instead of water, to add some extra depth of flavour.


  • 200ml dark navy-strength rum
  • 100ml brandy
  • 600ml English breakfast tea – brewed stronger than normal and left to cool
  • 150ml lemon juice
  • 300g demerara sugar


  1. Put everything into a large bowl, add lots of ice and stir well.
  2. Ladle into tumblers filled with fresh ice, garnish each glass with a slice of lemon or orange (we use dried orange slices), and serve.
