NEW drink Gran Stead’s Blackcurrant with Zing will make it difficult for witches, wizards and warlocks to stay chillingly spooky this Halloween. For this spicy concoction - luscious blackcurrant juice with a ghostly touch of ginger - is deep, dark and devilishly warming.
Inspired by an historic, 19th Century recipe that can be traced back to the original Victorian “Granny Stead”, Blackcurrant with Zing is ideal for handing round in mugs after a stint of trick or treating. Serve it warm with ginger cake and spicy biscuits.
The new drink is the latest in a collection of traditional, alcohol-free beverages from Gran Stead’s Ginger Co., owned and run by husband-and-wife soft drinks specialists, Chris and Rosemary Knox of Portslade, East Sussex.
