A bar in Glasgow has created a Percy Pig cocktail and it looks incredibly delicious

Literally drooling.

Percy Pigs are probably one of the most delicious jellies out there. However, chomp away on a few and they become incredibly sweet.

Last week, M&S announced that Percy Pig sauce will be landing in stores – and the news went down like Marmite, with some loving it, and some feeling ill by it.

Whatever your opinion, we have become intrigued by this Percy Pig cocktail that has been created by a bar in Glasgow.

Using the new syrup, Driftwood Bar has introduced the cocktail made up from gin, strawberry vodka, cranberry sauce and a dash of lemonade. The sweetest thing though? It’s topped off with candyfloss.

The bar’s general manager, Nicola Walker, told Tyla that when the sauce launched in the New Year, they knew they had to do something with it.

“We decided to use the dessert sauce to make an alcoholic celebration of the sweets! Plus it comes with a your very own Percy Pig sweet,” she said.

“It’s been proving extremely popular since we launched it. In fact, I had to buy my local Marks and Spencer’s out of dessert sauce and sweets the other day – pretty sure the check out lady thought I had lost it.”

Driftwood Bar is known for it’s unique cocktails and has previously created ones inspired by Harry Potter and Disney.

However, you don’t have to travel to Glasgow to try the scrumptious drink as they have provided the recipe for everyone to try at home:

  • 25ml pink gin
  • 25ml strawberry vodka
  • three shots of cranberry juice
  • Percy Pig dessert sauce
  • dash of lemonade
  • candy floss (if handy)

Simply shake the alcohol, cranberry sauce and dessert sauce together with ice. Pour into a glass and finish with the dash of lemonade.

Happy sipping, folks!
