This Bar Has Invented A Percy Pig Cocktail Using The New M&S Dessert Sauce

This Bar Has Invented A Percy Pig Cocktail Using The New M&S Dessert Sauce

When we found out that Marks & Spencer was releasing a bright pink Percy Pig dessert sauce, we quite frankly didn't think it could get any better.

But one Glasgow drinking establishment has taken things one glorious step further and made a delicious looking cocktail out of the sauce.

Yep, Driftwood bar is now offering a stunning pink tipple packed full of fruity flavours and a healthy dose of the super-sweet sauce.

And the best part? It's embellished with candy-floss and a tasty Percy Pig for that extra little sweet treat. Just *think* of the 'gram.

The cocktail bar, found on St George's Road in the Scottish city, is known for making quirky cocktails and shots. They've previously launched a whole Disney-themed collection, a Harry Potter range, and, of course, their infamous Pornstar Bombs.

Now, the Percy Pig addition is the latest menu addition to get people talking.

Speaking to Tyla, Nicola Walker, the bar's general manager, said: "We obviously do lots of sweetie and popular culture inspired cocktails, so, when the new Marks and Spencer's Percy Pig dessert sauce was released I started to wonder why we had never done a Percy Pig Cocktail before - because everyone loves them!

"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."

If you want to get your hands on a Percy Pig cocktail of your own and you're in the area, the best part is it's just £3.50. (As are all their cocktails, in fact.)

"It's been proving extremely popular since we launched it," Nicola added. "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".

If you're not in the area to try out Driftwood's creation then fear not, because they have also provided us with the recipe so you can try it for yourself at home.

How to make the Percy Pig cocktail

To start, all you'll need is 25ml of pink gin, 25ml of strawberry vodka and three shots of cranberry juice.

Simply shake these ingredients together with ice and a good squeeze of the Percy Pig dessert sauce, then add a dash of lemonade and top with the pink candy-floss and a Percy Pig sweet.

Voila! It's really that easy.

Now, who's holding a Percy Pig cocktail party?
