Hiker's Haven
1/2 wineglass Stone's Ginger Wine in 3/4 of a tumbler of Lemon Squash.
A deliciously cooling and reviving drink.

Take 2 "fingers" of Stone's Ginger Wine and fill up with soda. A most refreshing drink when you are hot.

Stonoda Cup
Take equal quantities of Stone's Ginger Wine and Soda Water. A few slices of Cucumber or sprigs of Borage. Freshen with any ripe fruit. Add sugar and lemon to taste and a few lumps of ice.

Have you ever tried old English Fruit Wines?
Stone's make Orange, Rich Raisin and Elderberry Wines which are delicious in themselves and make wonderful flavourings for cocktails.

One for the Way Home..

When your guests arrived, you gave them a welcome "warmer than a handshake" - Stone's Ginger Wine.

Now - after having had a jolly good time - your guests are about to leave. Shut that front door for a moment. Just a moment, everybody! Have a last glass of genial glowing Stone's Ginger Wine. Sip it... there's liquid warmth to trickle through your veins. Drink it... there's comforting glow to make you laugh at chilly nights. Drain it... and home, well protected.

It just goes to show that you can't throw a party without STONES...
