I’ve developed a dangerously unhealthy obsession to Percy Pigs over the last few months, frequently blitzing through full packs in single sittings.
They’re crack, ok?
They might look all sweet and innocent, but they’re an absolute menace, the one blot on my otherwise unblemished personality.
Moreish, addictive and inexplicably delicious, I simply cannot get enough of those precious little piggies and the rest of his family/farmyard acquaintances.
And now it seems my one vice in this world has found another way to tempt me: Percy Pig cocktails.
Giving the classic sweet an alcoholic twist, Instagram user emmascakesandcokctails has shared the recipe for the rest of us to try –and all you need is a blender and a cocktail glass.
2 Scoops of Vanilla Ice-cream
1 Handful of Ice
1 Tablespoon of Percy Pig sauce
2 Shots of Tequila Rose
Chop the tops off 4/5 strawberries.
Add the strawberries, two scoops of vanilla ice cream, a handful of ice, a tablespoon of Percy Pig dessert sauce and two shots of Tequila Rose into a blender.
Blend until smooth.
Decorate your glass with a bit of the Percy Pig dessert sauce before pouring in the cocktail mix you’ve just created.
Garnish with Percy Pig sweets and serve.
It comes after the announcement that M&S have launched a new Percy Pig ice-cream treat, which apparently is sure to have you salivating at its ‘ripples of fruit sauce and chewy strawberry marshmallows’. Plus it’s only £3 a tub, making it substantially cheaper than the likes of Ben & Jerry’s.
Damn that pig and his versatility.
I hate how much I love him.
