Fentimans has created the most delicious new addition for your pancakes
In celebration of Pancake Day (Tuesday 5th March 2019), Fentimans has devised a gin and tonic pancake drizzle, using their Valencian Orange Tonic Water, for home-bakers to liberally douse on their choice of pancakes this Shrove Tuesday.
With the help of popular vegan blogger and Instagrammer Holly Jade, aka @thelittleblogofvegan, Fentimans has transformed its botanically brewed Valencian Orange Tonic Water into a zesty pancake syrup.
Reminiscent of both the French classic Crepes Suzette and a refreshing citrusy G&T, the drizzle combines Fentimans Valencian Orange Tonic Water with orange juice, fresh orange zest and gin. It can easily be whipped up at home thanks to a simple and easy to follow recipe (below) and then poured over fluffy buttermilk pancakes or delicate buttery crepes. A unique alternative to the usual chocolate spread, sugar or golden syrup.
Gin and Fentimans Tonic Water Pancake Drizzle Recipe
– 140ml of Fentimans Valencian Orange Tonic Water
– 1 tbsp Gin of choice
– 200ml of Orange Juice (add extra if consistency is too thick)
– Zest of 2 large oranges (optional)
– 200g of golden caster sugar
– 4.5 tbsp corn starch
– Pinch of salt
1.) Add all ingredients into a saucepan.
2.) Heat over medium – high heat until boiling, stirring constantly (around 5-8 minutes, it should thicken and turn clear).
3.) Remove from the heat and set aside into a heat proof bowl. If consistency is too thick, add extra orange juice at this stage and stir through.
4.) Store in the fridge once cooled.
