The original Babycham drink was perry, poiré or pear cider, made in Britain since Roman times. Perry has languished in popularity but I love the glasses, rimmed in gold, with the Disney-like fawn in blue and yellow. I now have about 50 Babycham glasses in my collection. I do prefer to drink bubbly from a coupe than a flute, but then, as someone who worked for me once noted, much of my food is breast shaped. I often serve guests a welcome drink of Kir Royale, usually with creme de cassis and prosecco.
Recently I was given British creme de cassis to try, made by Jo Hilditch in Hertfordshire. It’s quite different, not as sweet as the French version.
I also like to serve dessert in Babycham glasses, below is rosewater kulfi (melting rapidly in the summer heat) with crystallised rose petals which I served at Camp Bestival. Babycham as a brand signifies femininity, childlike innocence, glamour and vintage. This lady has tracked the evolution of the design.
