Ingredients – Serves 6
4 yellow peaches, halved, stone removed
1 tbsp caster sugar
12 Belgian-style waffles
½ cup brown sugar
1/3 cup brandy
½ tsp ground ginger
½ tsp ground cinnamon
1 Preheat a grill on high. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper. Place peaches onto one baking tray. Sprinkle with caster
sugar. Cook for 3-4 minutes
or until golden.
2 Place waffles onto second baking tray and place under grill. Cook for 2 minutes each side or until golden and heated through.
3 Heat brown sugar in a non-stick frying pan over a medium-low heat, swirling around pan occasionally until melted and a rich golden caramel colour. Add butter, shaking pan until melted.
4 Add brandy (taking care as it bubbles up), ginger and cinnamon. Stir until well combined. If mixture is too thick, add a little water 1-2 tablespoons at a time, until desired consistency.
5 Place waffles onto serving plates and top with peaches. Spoon over sauce, with extra on the side. Serve.

Proving they’ve still got it after all these years Duran Duran have released the video for their latest single Girl Panic! and its amazing. Filled with supermodels (legendary and more recent) the video takes on a documentary style with the band being played by the likes of Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Eva Herzigova & Helena Christensen. Enough talk, check it out….
We have officially begun the holiday season and that means there will be parties, parties and more parties. You should be stocking your cabinets with one thing and one thing only: VnC Cocktails. No need for expensive shopping trips, prep-time cutting into your hair and makeup time or annoying cleanup. VnC is easy. You just Chill. Pour. Drink.
The background is simple. There was a guy in New Zealand named Shane McKillan who wanted to spend less time prepping and more time drinking and so, VnC was born. Made with premium vodka and 100% natural fruit juice, it is an asset for the most ambitious hostess and a must have for the laziest (I fall into this second category.) You literally pull it out of the fridge and pour it, or if your having one of those nights, just drink it right out of the bottle.
It also makes a great gift if you’re showing up to a party and want to make sure there is something you can drink. Do you really expect to be served a mojioto or a mai-tai in the dead of winter? Well now you can, along with passionfruit caprioska, strawberry daiquiri, margarita, mango daiquiri, banana daiquiri, pomegranate cosmopolitan and feijoa apple.
So go ahead and be that person with the ridiculous tropical request in below zero weather. VnC has got you covered.
Your cocktail making time should never cut into your cocktail drinking time.
