It’s happened. The English have finally got a taste for Buckys. This extra strong fortified wine has been popular in Scotland and Ireland for ages. But with the English joining the party, albeit late, Buckys has soared into the best-selling alcohol brands league table for the first time. It is no longer the drink of violent scotsmen and teenagers in parks. It’s time we treat Buckfast with the respect it deserves, so we’ve made a roundup of some very respectable Buckfast cocktails…Just try not to drink too many of them.

We don’t want to get ahead of ourselves, Pimms is sacred after all. But it might just have a rival in this summery punch. Add some ginger for an unusual Ginger-y twist and you’ve got yourself a refreshing (and strong) little alternative. Find the recipe here.
