Appletiser Ceviche
Thinly slice a side of white fish (kingklip/yellow tail) and place in a mixing bowl. Add fresh lime juice, half a red onion, a finely chopped chilli, 1t of finely grated fresh ginger, coriander and top with Appletiser. Allow to stand for 5 minutes. Serve the ceviche on thinly sliced watermelon, fennel shavings and a wedge of lime.

Tagliatelle with chilli and Parmesan
Cook 250g of fresh tagliatelle pasta in salted, boiling water until al dente. Meanwhile, melt half a cup of butter in a pan until bubbling. Add 4 finely chopped garlic cloves and a finely chopped chilli and cook for a few seconds. Mix through 3T of Italian parsley and fold through the drained, cooked pasta. Sprinkle 3T of Parmesan and a generous amount of freshly ground black pepper.

Poached peaches and sorbet
Score an ‘x’ on the under side of the peaches. Add 200 g brown sugar, a few star anise cloves and a cinnamon stick to a saucepan. Top with Appletiser and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer and add the peaches. Allow to poach for 5 minutes, or until the skins can be peeled off easily. Place the sugar water back on the stove and add more brown sugar. Bring to the boil and reduce until a syrupy consistency. Pour a little syrup over the peaches and serve with scoops of lemon sorbet or vanilla ice cream and crushed, cashew nut brittle.

Crown every moment.

Appletiser is the perfect drink to be enjoyed during social gatherings between families and friends while enjoying each other’s company and just having a good time. Appletiser has always wanted to make those ordinary moments shared between people extra ordinary. Surrender yourself to every sip of lightly sparkling apple indulgence, and set out to uncover more extraordinary moments worth celebrating.
