Spring is in the air | Sips for a new season

Spring has officially arrived on the farm and as the clocks go forward, the prospect of longer, lighter evenings punctuated by cool refreshing Black Cow cocktails, are filling us with hope and renewed energy.

Barren winter landscapes will become a distant memory, replaced with lush greenery and vibrant blooms. Daffodils line the verges, cascade down hilltops, and fill up parks. Crocuses poke their bright heads up through frosty grounds, followed by tulips in all their grandeur, welcoming us back after hiding underground for months.

Spring brings an abundance of seasonal produce to make the most of. Our Black Cow Deluxe Cheddar becomes a staple at almost every meal, grated atop of soups, melted on toast, baked into scones. It’s delicious richness pairing so well with spring greens, majestic leeks, and bunches of wild garlic.


Here’s a collection of inspiring spring sips, perfect to beckon in a new season.

Spring also signals the (hopeful) return of alfresco drinking. We emerge from winter’s hibernation with renewed energy, excited to try out new cocktail recipes. This Black Cow Sgroppino, a classic Italian aperitif, screams of warmer climes. Black Cow & English Strawberries, paired with bright tart Rhubarb, makes for a perfect spring Bellini. The season graces us with a long slow Easter weekend, and two bank holidays, acting as the perfect excuse to experiment in the kitchen, making plans with loved ones, getting back outside.
