Boozy Baking With Craft56°

  1. Boozy Baking with Craft56° - Gin, Tonic & Orange Cupcakes

    With the hints of an Indian Summer we've been experiencing in Glasgow this week the next in our Boozy Baking series saw us attempt some refreshing Gin, Tonic & Orange cupcakes.

    We used a combination of Ellis No.3 Butterfly Pea Gin and Cushiedoos quinine-free Scottish Tonic Water to make our cupcakes. We love the deep, earthy floral tones in the gin which complements orange well. As Cushiedoos tonic is quinine-free it's not as bitter as other botanicals so knew it would also work well in the recipe.

  2. Boozy Baking with Craft56° - Spiced Rum & Raisin Cookies

    It’s been a long time but the return of the Great British Bake Off this week has inspired us to get back into the kitchen and get some boozy baking done!

    It’s hardly a showstopper but we thought we’d ease ourselves back into it with some Spiced Rum & Raisin Cookies.

    We decided to go with Wester Spiced Rum as we love the full-bodied flavour of the spices, citrus zests and vanilla in it.

  3. Boozy Baking with Craft56° - Halloween Special

    Our boozy bake this month is the perfect recipe to make you feel warm inside on a cold, dark winter night. What's more, our choice of gin was inspired by Halloween too!

    We've baked a Spiced Plum and Rhubarb Gin cake using Solway Spirits' Rhubarb Crumble Gin. We love the Rhubarb Crumble Gin (we normally drink with ginger ale) as it's as refreshing as it is warming and perfect for a cosy night in front of the fire. In addition, with it also being Halloween, we couldn't see past using a Solway Spirits gin given the eerie, gothic label design on the bottle.

  4. Boozy Baking with Craft56° - Two Autumnal Equinox Recipes

    Can you believe it’s almost the end of September already? It feels like only a few days ago since we were all basking in Scotland’s summer heatwave! Now that the leaves are beginning to change colour and the nights are slowly but surely beginning to draw in, this month we’re bringing you two cake recipes which are simple to bake but sure to impress!

    Our first recipe, a G&T Drizzle Cake, is an ideal way to wave goodbye to summer and those summer days spent in the garden with your favourite tipple. It’s a light cake that’s straightforward to make but still packed full of your favourite gin and citrus fruits!

  5. Boozy Baking with Craft56° - Banana Rum Bread

    To celebrate the return of Great British Bake Off tonight, we thought we would try our hand at creating our own showstoppers featuring some of our very own spirits in the recipes!

    Each month we'll make a different bake or cake using one of our Scottish craft spirits.

    After plenty of research and taste testing, this time we’ve chosen to start with a Banana Rum Bread recipe. Simple to make to ease ourselves in but still packs plenty of flavour. Could it be worthy of a Hollywood handshake? We’ll leave that for you to decide!

    We’ve included our recipe below, so feel free to join in and impress your own judges (aka friends and family) wit
