The Blandy’s Twist
Versatile and refreshing, this cocktail was originally created by London mixologist, Ben Reed. Now served in bars all over, the blend of the Madeira's full raisin and caramel flavours together with fresh fruit and mint is a true winner. The wine’s acidity lends a refreshing “twist” to the final taste! To be enjoyed in summer and winter alike.
