In order to add some sunshine to these darker, colder months, Brown Brothers are offering you the chance to win a gorgeous cocktail hamper worth £200.
Fourth-generation Australian winemakers, Brown Brothers, have teamed up with up-and-coming mixologist Kyra Elton to create a delicious winter cocktail, Spiced Winter Flora, heroing their award-winning dessert wine, Orange Muscat & Flora. With an alluring gold colour, zesty citrus notes, and hints of honey, this sweet wine is the perfect addition to this spiced winter cocktail and your autumn get-together.
This hamper will have all the ingredients to make this delicious cocktail at home, just in time for the holidays. Orange Muscat and Flora wine is a blend that is unique to Brown Brothers, created using two grape varieties that aren’t native or well-known in Australia.
Sweet and rich yet beautifully balanced, this is a light and refreshing dessert wine that is the ideal pairing with the pudding course or cheeseboard this festive period and the hero to the specially-created Spiced Winter Flora.
With two different levels of complexity options to choose from, the Spiced Winter Flora can either be a quick cocktail creation served as an aperitif, or the pièce de résistance of the evening with a little more labour of love. And if cocktails aren’t your thing, try a small serving of Brown Brothers Orange Muscat & Flora on its own to round off a meal, or simply enjoy over ice. Nice.
