What other alcohol could I use instead to make them a bit special? Not fond of Brandy. Thanks.

I think whisky would work. Haven’t tried it myself though Louise, but it would go really well with the lemon flavours. Such a good recipe and it works just as well without any alcohol. Best wishes, Grace

I ended up making it without any alcohol. It was so lovely and my family members thought is was delicious. I served mine with a small piece of Dorset apple cake and some berries on top.

Hi Louise – delighted the ‘on the wagon’ version went well for you. Impressed by the addition of apple cake and berries… making my mouth water! Best wishes, Grace
