A cheesecake in a jar that's easy to make as well - what more could you want?! This dessert will be perfect if there are only two of you. It doesn’t even need to be blueberries you can use any of your favourite fruits in the dessert.

My mouth is watering just thinking about this dessert! There is nothing better than dark chocolate tart with a pinch of sea salt to tickle your taste buds. The perfect dessert to a perfect three course meal.
This fizzy, fruity raspberry and blueberry gin cocktail is exactly what you need after a lovely meal. We’re already salivating at the thought of sipping this sweet nectar - it just makes a lovely refreshing drink!
The botanicals that Daffy's steep and distil are a combination of the traditional juniper, coriander seeds and cassia bark but with the addition of Lebanese mint to create a classic, complex and perfectly balanced gin. Mixed with bubbles, passionfruit and vanilla creates the perfect fruity and fizzy drink.
Who doesn’t love champagne - and with pomegranate, this sounds like the perfect mix. If you aren’t a drinker then you can even use rose lemonade instead of champagne to get the same great taste. Bliss!
