With an eye on Christmas treats, Peter Morrell enjoys this versatile new drink from innovative drinks company TW Kempton
For the first time, you’ll be wishing for an orange in your stocking this year – but not the usual type. TW Kempton is putting the zest into Christmas by launching its latest limited-edition offering, TW Kempton Chocolate Orange Gin Liqueur.
The gin liqueur brand is following up on the success of its range of flavours, including Strawberries & Cream, Pineapple Sherbet and more, to bring a Christmas twist to upcoming festive celebrations.
Available exclusively from Tesco, both online and instore, TW Kempton Chocolate Orange answers the call for one of the nation’s favourite flavours. Often linked with Christmas, Chocolate Orange offers the comfort and nostalgia of the holidays, something we have needed and craved throughout the last 18 months.
With the liqueur offering a lower alcohol percentage at 20% ABV, TW Kempton offers a less alcoholic take on Brits’ favourite spirit. This versatile drink tastes great with a simple mixer or in a delicious cocktail – both hot and cold!
Peter Morrell says “I have been tasting the TW Kempton Chocolate Orange Liqueur both neat and in a cocktail, it’s delicious. When you drink it neat you can sip it from a glass at room temperature, which brings out the contrasting but complementary of rich chocolate, refreshing orange,a nd citrussy juniper. Alternatively use it as a base for some inventive cocktails to delight your guests this Christmas.”
