Originally crafted by the talented Joe at @todays_tipple as the perfect love potion for couples on Valentine’s Day, we’re so smitten with this stunner that we just had to share the recipe for it. After all, who said making eyes at each other over a gorgeous cocktail was just for February?  

Blushed with pink and fabulously floral, the tart tang of the rhubarb is the perfect pairing for the subtle sweetness of the honey wine. Our suggestion? Buy a bottle of mead immeadiately and fall in love all over again with a sweet little sip, all pretty in pink. 

The perfect amount for 2… obviously. 

How To:

First up, a homemade ginger cordial.


– 50g Grated Rhubarb

– 25g Grated Ginger

– 10g Lime Zest

– 20g Lime Juice

– 50g Maison Mirabeau Gin

– 20g Caster Sugar

– 10g Honey

The gin helps draw more flavour out of the ingredients and thins it out enough to let you strain it through muslin cloth. Leave mixture to infuse for 12 hours, stirring well. For every 10g of strained cordial, add 0.1g Malic Acid.

Then take 75ml of Loxwood Honey Wine, the Rhubarb and Ginger Cordial.

Mix, bottle, chill, pour.

Say cheers to your undying love.

Enjoy a sip of something a little different.

What is Loxwood Meadworks’ signature product, Pure Mead?


Out with the traditional and in with the modern.  We are on a mission to ‘Reimagine mead for a new generation’… everything from branding to taste.  Introducing our Pure Mead made from our own unique blend of honey.


Deep golden in colour with honied-citrus aromas, this delicious off-dry honey wine has an elegant minerality, crisp zesty flavours which complement the rich, creamy, textured finish.



Serve chilled in a wine glass and try pairing with a cheeseboard.  The acidity cuts through the richness ofthe cheese and the delicate sweetness complements any sweet accompaniments whilst contrasting the saltiness.  For more pairing inspiration check out our blog.


Made similarly to a white wine we ferment to dry with a cool fermentation; retain all the delicate flavours. After, we back-sweeten with our unique blend of honey to produce the gentle sweetness.
