Croft Sherry Trifle

Sherry trifle, glasses and Croft Original

Serves 5

A classic favourite, especially as a post-barbeque treat, a trifle is the perfect addition to any occasion. A dash of Croft Original helps this iconic dessert stand out as something truly special.

Enjoy it with friends and family alongside a tender glass of Croft Original, or unleash your inner Bake Off star and try it alongside Sandro’s Summer Spritz.
