We’ve taken a classic hot punch or toddy recipe and replaced the heady whiskey or bourbon with the smoothness and welcome honey of our Atlantic Dry Mead. Gently warmed and gently spiced with a splash of apple juice and honey to sweeten it naturally.
This recipe is a Mead version of the classic Irish Maid Cocktail. It is based on the Irish Maid cocktail created by Jack McGarry at the Irish-American Dead Rabbit Bar, and this is itself based on the contemporary classic Kentucky Maid cocktail also from New York.
Also known as "I Can't Believe It's Not Melon"
Inspired by the sweetly scented lemon groves of Sicily. Use Hazy Summer Mead and your favourite pink gin and Sicilian lemonade to mix up this zingy, fruity and gently sweetened punch. Easy-to-make and delicious to drink, this tipple will have you licking your lips with glee.
