What’s in my Trolley: September 2017

I can’t believe it’s the end of September, where has this year gone? I also can’t believe this is my first What’s In My Trolley since MAY! I can only apologise, but holidays, getting married and work have gotten in the way a bit! I’m back on it now though, and here with a few of the latest foodie products that I’ve been buying this month! There are two – yes, that’s right, two – different liqueurs on here, this is mostly due to my visit to the Scottish Gin Festival in Glasgow last weekend, so if you’re looking for an Autumn tipple, I may have just the thing for you…

EL:GIN MORAY BERRY GIN LIQUEUR

One of the first gin liqueurs on the list, this stuff is just delicious. If, like me, you have a love for flavoured gins, this is right up your street. Their el:gin gin is infused with local strawberries, raspberries and blueberries for a deliciously fruity flavour and gorgeous pink colour. Drink it on its own with a little ice, or, if you want to be opulent, drizzle it over ice cream for an adult fruit sauce.

APPLES AND BLACKBERRIES

The fruits of autumn, you could say?  One of the great things about autumn is the fruit that can be foraged from, well, pretty much any local park or woodland. The apples we’re lucky enough to get from our apple tree in our garden, but the blackberries I pick from our local park. I’ll be showing you a delicious baking recipe to use these foraged fruits very soon, so keep an eye out!

COFAIDH ‘COLD-BREW’ LIQUEUR

Words cannot describe how in love with this liqueur I am and I don’t even like coffee! This brand-new coffee liqueur comes from Berry Good, who make a range of gin and fruit liqueurs, and oh my word it is delicious. If you love espresso martinis, this stuff would make probably the best one in the world. It is super smooth with a really gentle coffee flavour and just the right level of sweetness. Buy it. BUY IT NOW.

MERIDIAN CASHEW BUTTER

Because I’m convinced I am obsessed with nut butters, this month I’m loving Meridian’s cashew butter. It’s probably the most naturally sweet nut butter compared to almond or peanut, and it’s the smoothest as well. You can make your own, which I have in the past and loved, but sometimes it’s easier to buy it in a handy jar! I’ve been using it to make my scrummy Cashew & Vanilla energy balls.

That’s my trolley for September – what’s in yours?
