4 brilliant Bonfire Night drinks

Guy Fawkes Night originates from the infamous Gunpowder Plot of 1605, which failed and was then celebrated by way of lighting bonfires.

It’s been part of our British annual traditions since then, with friends, families and local communities getting together and lighting a large bonfire and setting off fireworks.

Spooky Halloween Coffee Recipes

It’s the time of year where the daylight gets shorter, the nights get darker and colder, and Autumn is well underway. Coffee shops and bakeries are taking advantage of Halloween approaching, with themed drinks and treats to get people in the Halloween spirit.

Pumpkins have been a Halloween tradition for hundreds of years. Carving scary faces into pumpkins is a popular Halloween tradition that originated in Ireland and continues on to this day, often illuminated with candles.

Previously Jack-o-Lanterns had been carved out of potatoes or turnips – until Irish immigrants arrived in North America and discovered the bright orange squash plant.

Here’s some recipes and ideas you could try; mix and match them as you need, there’s sure to be something devilishly delicious to offer to your ghosts, witches and werewolf guests!

How you can add a festive kick to your drinks offerings

Christmas Gingerbread Cookies

It’s that time of year again: the supermarkets, shops and retailers are promoting their Christmas themed offerings in store, online and on TV. It’s a wonderful time of year where friends and family come together.

As the days get colder, and darker earlier – a warm drink always helps braving low temperatures and gives you that fantastic festive feeling.

One of my favourite Christmas-themed delights is hot chocolate. I’ll drink it any time of year, but it tastes extra special when it’s festive themed, whether that’s a black forest gateau taste, gingerbread or eggnog.

Coffee shops can add something a little extra to their offerings over the Christmas period by using flavoured syrups to enhance and add new options – it’s always exciting to try things new, and a unique taste to try helps you stand out from the crowd.

Here are some winter-feel syrup flavours we offer for inspiration:

  • Gingerbread
  • Pumpkin Spice
  • Toasted Marshmallow
  • Eggnog
  • Salted Caramel
  • Amaretto
  • Hazelnut

Give your customers a taste of pure Christmas spirit with some fantastically festive flavours. We stock over 45 different flavours of syrups, including Toffee Apple, Toasted Marshmallow, Pumpkin Spice and  Gingerbread… Yum!
