Robinsons has been a household name in my family for as long as I can remember. From their blackcurrant through to fruit and barley, we've sampled it all. I have fond memories sitting outside in my Nanna's garden supping on an ice cold glass of barley water in the heat of summer.
That being said I'm a little boring when it comes to our soft drinks so when I was asked if we would like to experiment with Robinsons squash and create a few recipes that we hadn't tried before I was really looking forward to it.
We were sent two bottles of Robinsons squash and a recipe book to get us started and I couldn't wait to start experimenting. I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of recipe ideas that are in the booklet and I chose two which I thought that we could all enjoy together.
SPICED ORANGE SQUASH
Pierce 4 slices of orange with 1 clove each.
Place in a jig with 200ml of Robinsons Orange and a good pinch of ginger.
Fill to 800ml with warm water from the kettle.
Leave for a few minutes for flavours to infuse before pouring.
SPICED APPLE & BLACKCURRANT
Robinsons Apple and Blackcurrant
Dilute 200ml Robinsons Apple & Blackcurrant with 800ml of water.
Warm in pan and add cinnamon and mixed spice.
Simmer gently for 3 minutes and then set aside for the mixture to infuse and cool. Serve warm in your favourite mug or festive cup!
Noah and I really enjoyed creating and sampling these new drinks and it's inspired me to think up some of my own recipe ideas. Our favourite has got to be the warm spiced orange which warmed us up nicely after a cold walk outdoors, the perfect Winters drink.
How do you take your squash? Hot or cold or have you created some recipe's too? I would love to hear all about them!
