A festive cocktail in Christmas (and SPAR) colours. This cocktail was designed for SPAR's birthday celebration and we thought we'd share the recipe with you - cheers!


Prep Time

10 minutes

Cooking Time


Serves: 10

Recipe Ingredients

  • 100 ml Grenadine cordial syrup
  • 200 ml Peppermint liqueur
  • 75 ml ToffeeCream or Amarula Cream liqueur
  • 200 ml SPAR long-life cream, well chilled overnight
  • 10 SPAR Maraschino cherries with stalk on

Recipe Method

  1. In a SPAR Good Living 1.5 litre ceramic mixing bowl, combine the thick chilled cream and Toffee Cream liqueur. Set aside.
  2. Place 10 shot or sherry glasses in a row on a counter.
  3. Carefully and slowly, pour in +-10 ml of Grenadine into each glass.
  4. Carefully and slowly, pour over +-20 ml of peppermint liqueur in each glass.
  5. Gently pour the flavoured cream over the back of a spoon, almost to the rim of the glass.
  6. Sprinkle lightly with crushed peppermint crisp chocolate, or place a maraschino cherry on top of the cream. Serve immediately.

Hints & Tips

  • If children want to join in the party, skip the alcohol but emulate the concept in the same glasses, using a layer of SPAR strawberry jelly followed by a green jelly once half-set, and lastly topped with sweetened whipped cream and a cherry at serving time.
  • Staff at a SPAR Tops store will assist you to find the liquor ingredient purchases.
  • A sloping-sided Martini glass, does not hold the layers well. Keep to straight-sided glasses such as a sherry or SPAR Good Living shot glasses.
