Happy holidays, Dorset style!

We said farewell to our last pre-Christmas guest yesterday and now we’re closed for a few days, whilst we celebrate with our family (there will be ten of us!)

We wish you all a very happy holiday season and we look forward to welcoming you to ‘Sunflowers’ in 2017.  We re-open on December 29th.


And here’s the finished limoncello – it’s absolutely delicious! I’ve tried it in two different cocktails so far, so my Christmas gift to you is a couple of festive cocktail recipes.

Dorset St. Clements

2 measures of limoncello
2 measures of gin
2 measures of freshly squeezed orange juice

Half fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add your ingredients, shake and then strain into a chilled glass. Garnish with a twist of orange peel.

Dorset Lemon Fizz

Dip a champagne flute into lemon juice and then into sugar to create a frosted rim. Add a measure of limoncello and then top up with Prosecco.

Merry Christmas!
