When I think of scones, I definitely think of tea. But sometimes you want a scone and something a little stronger than tea. That’s why we’ve paired our top four selling scones with adult drinks that have a little more kick than tea! Lemon Blueberry Scone & Mimosa
Our Lemon Blueberry Scone
combines refreshing lemon wild Canadian Blueberries. As the go-to scone for breakfast, its most obvious pairing is the mimosa. In a champagne flute (or wine glass in this case), pour in half a glass of dry sparkling wine and top with freshly squeezed orange juice. As an alternative to wine, use sparkling water.
Berry & White Chocolate & Gin Berry Lemonade
Baked fresh daily with raspberries and white chocolate chips, this scone is great for sunny afternoons and picnics. What goes better at a backyard picnic Gin Berry Lemonade! Pour 1.5 oz of gin over a glass of ice, throw in some frozen berries and top with lemonade. We used strawberries, but it would work even better with raspberries.
Cinnamon Scone & Iced Coffee Cocktail
Filled with cinnamon flakes and topped with our own blend of cinnamon and sugar, our Cinnamon Scone is one of the favourite COBS Bread scones – and with good reason. It’s not too sweet and perfect for any time of the day. A great pick-me up in the afternoon, this cinnamon scone goes well with coffee, and a spiked version will kick up your afternoon a notch. Layer the bottom of a glass with sweetened condensed milk and fill with ice. Add a shot of vodka if you choose, then pour two shots of chilled espresso on top. Drizzle sweetened condensed milk on top for extra sweetness.
Apple Pie Scone & Bourbon Vanilla Milkshake
Our Apple Pie Scone is packed with pieces of Granny Smith apple and salted caramel. When looking for a drink to pair with our Apple Pie Scone, involving vanilla ice cream was a no-brainer. Blend togeter 1 cup vanilla ice cream, ¼ cup of milk, a few ice cubes and 1.5 oz of bourbon and pour into a glass. If removing the bourbon, add a splash more milk. This grown-up milk shake is the perfect compliment. I wouldn’t say no to dipping the scone right in the drink.
Alcohol is optional in all these drinks. Please drink responsibly.
