BBQ Season - Sweets And Cocktails

BBQ Season: Sweets & Cocktails

If you have been following our BBQ series you are hopefully looking forward to our final installment, BBQ Season: Sweets & Cocktails. In our previous blogs, we explored the art of grilling juicy meats and creating delicious side dishes to accompany them. But, in my view, no BBQ experience would be complete without a grande finale. Yes, desserts and refreshing cocktails are definitely a must have for any successful BBQ. As always, we make it easy for you with these simple but delicious recipes. And, since nobody wants to spend time in a boiling kitchen in the summer, these desserts are also no bake. BBQ Desserts Pineapple Wedges With Rum Butter And Toasted Coconut If your family is anything like ours, it is likely that you will have little to no space for dessert following a BBQ. A vast amount of delicious meat often results in food comas at our house! That said, Evan and I ALWAYS have a special pocket for dessert regardless of how full we feel. This first dessert is an ideal dish in that it is refreshing and light however, given the addition of rum you may wish to have an alcohol-free version for the kids. Serves 4 Ingredients Directions White Chocolate Limoncello Tiramisu I made this recipe a few weeks ago for a family get-together and it was an absolute hit. I’m sure it will soon become a favourite at your summer BBQs or family meals. Filling Soak Drizzle Directions White Chocolate Mousse If you are making the limoncello tiramisu, use the leftover Rosselle Cream to make a non-alcoholic mousse for the kids. Ingredients Directions S’mores For those of you who have been, or currently are, Brownies, Girl Guides or Scouts (or are just American!) there can be no better ending to a BBQ than a good old S’more. The origins of s’mores can be traced back to the early 20th century when they first appeared in the Girl Scouts handbook in 1927. The name “s’more” is a contraction of the phrase “some more.” And, in our opinion, “some more” perfectly encapsulates the irresistible nature of this indulgent treat. Traditionally made with Graham Crackers we make ours with plain Digestives since Graham Crackers are hard to find in Gibraltar. Directions While the classic s’more holds a special place in our hearts, experimenting with different flavors can be a delightful adventure. Here are a few tantalizing variations to try: Want to receive exclusive recipes straight to your inbox? Then join the T.O.M tribe. It’s fun, it’s free and we won’t spam you! Perfect BBQ/Summer Drinks We guarantee you will have the perfect BBQ party if you make some of these for your guests. There’s definitely something for all tastes with our cocktails, mocktails, lemonades and smoothie options. Word of warning though, if you are having our cocktails, these are strong and VERY moreish. You might want to take it easy or stock up on the paracetamol! And that’s a wrap! We hope you have enjoyed our BBQ series and that you have a fabulous BBQ season.
