As Prince George prepares to mark his first year as the nation’s favourite baby, there’s no doubt Great Britain seized the opportunity to celebrate the joyous occasion yesterday 22nd July.
To celebrate the greatest of British institutions – the royal family – Courvoisier, the UK’s number one cognac, has a delicious signature punch which offers the perfect sharing drink to relive the Jubilee spirit and raise a toast to the young Prince!
They offered me a few miniatures to join in the celebrations, well how could I say no!
Courvoisier is a cognac that as Chris says needs no words, no mixers, no introductions and no words, he says this last remark with a look of, shall we say warning at Christmas times, but hey ho, that is my job here!!
I on the other hand like it with a little extra and this recipe is perfect, I also add it to steamed pudding, please do not take me off to the tower and chop off my head!
The recipe is super easy to make, meaning you can spend more time rejoicing with friends and family…
