Harveys is introducing The Harveys Half Hour to the women of Britain this Spring, inviting them to indulge in half an hour of “me-time” as part of their daily routine. As everyone deserves some time to unwind, The Harveys Half Hour encourages people to do something good for their soul, whether it’s pottering in the garden, catching up with friends of cooking up a feast – and what better way of doing so then whilst enjoying a refreshing glass of Harveys Bristol Cream®.
Made exclusively from grapes grown at Harvey’s own vineyards and blended using traditional methods at its bodegas in Fino, Amontillado, Oloroso and Pedro Ximénez wines, the sensational, silky and smooth taste means its the perfect drink to unwind with. Best served over ice with a slice of orange, this easy combination brings out the taste of candied orange and perfectly complements the dried fruit and toasted almond flavours of this delicious sherry.
Alternatively, Harveys is also equally delicious served in a cocktail – why not try one of the following wonderful recipes?
