Croft Twist tasting at mmm… and glug…

Croft-Twist-at-mmm-glug

Come and taste Croft Twist at mmm… and glug… this Saturday (16 September) from 1pm.

Croft-Twist-tasting-mmm-glugCroft Twist is a take on the refreshing Andalusian ‘rebujito’ (which is Fino sherry, lemonade laden with ice and a garnish of mint).

This British version is more elaborate as it blends natural, freshly made elderflower, lemon and mint cordials with Croft Fino and water; all gently sparkled.

The drink is best served with a garnish of basil or mint and lots of ice.

The packaging design evokes British confidence and nostalgia. It cleverly interprets the flavour of Croft Twist and the essence of the Croft brand into an original and contemporary design.

Its alcohol content is 5.5% and we are selling Croft Twist in 70cl bottles.

Simone’s spicy smoked paprika wedges – a mmm… recipe

Spicy smoked paprika wedges
Serves 4
These wedges smell seriously amazing when they are cooking – even better they taste great too! The paste also works well with chicken wings and drumsticks (adjust cooking times accordingly) and makes a lovely marinade for BBQs too. It isn’t a recipe – just something you can put together in a couple of minutes and makes your kitchen smell amazing (did we mention that before?)

Ingredients
  1. 1 tsp of smoked paprika/pimenton (we used sweet smoked, but you can also use semi-sweet or hot smoked)
  2. 2 tbsp of Mutti tomato puree (the double concentrate purees work best)
  3. 3-4 tbsp of oil (we used our Herdade Portuguese olive oil – but you can also use rapeseed oil too)
  4. 600 – 700g of uncooked potatoes cut into wedges, cubes, chips or whatever you fancy
  5. Juice of half a lemon
  6. Parsley to garnish (optional).
Instructions
  1. Mix the paprika, puree and oil together in a dish
  2. Put your potatoes in a pan and add the paste
  3. Put a lid on the pan and shake for a few seconds to coat the potatoes
  4. Season with salt and pepper
  5. Add the coated potatoes to a pre-heated oven tray (oven set to 220°C/428°F) and leave for ten minutes
  6. Then turn the potatoes and reduce the oven temperature to 180°C/356°F and cook for a further 35 minutes or until they start to char
  7. Just before serving squeeze the juice of one lemon onto the potatoes and garnish with parsley (optional).
Notes
  1. If you are feeling like a bit more heat use our Gran Luchito smoked chilli ketchup instead of tomato puree – spicy!
