How to make a classic Scottish laird trifle
What is Tipsy Laird? So-called because of the inclusion of Scotch Whisky, Tipsy Laird trifle is a unique, delightful Scottish dessert. It is traditionally eaten on festive occasions - whether that’s Burns Night, Hogmanay, Christmas or New Year! Our simple, six-step homemade recipe will have you in the spirit (no pun intended) in no time.

- 1 whole orange
- 5 trifle sponges
- 1 carton or tin of custard
- 450g raspberries
- Heritage real dairy (squirty) cream
- 55g flaked almonds (optional)
Combine the whisky and the juice of your orange in a bowl.
