Lakeland Dairies Festive Cocktail Competition Open for Entries

  • Festive Tipples cocktail competition open for entries
  • Amazing prizes to be won
  • PLUS, free Festive Tipples Fortified Drink Recipe and Activity Resource
  • AND free piping bags with each resource claim

Following the success of last year’s inaugural Lakeland Dairies Festive Tipples cocktail competition, the contest has returned for 2022 and is now open for entries.

Jean Cattanach, marketing controller Lakeland Dairies comments: “We had a truly fantastic response to last year’s competition. We were so delighted to see care homes enjoying a fun and entertaining Christmas activity using our deliciously versatile Millac Gold Double, that we have bought it back for a second year. In 2021 we awarded Russell Churcher Court care home first place for their beautiful drink collages and exceptional creativity, and we can’t wait to see what exciting ideas this year’s competition will bring.”


Lakeland Dairies have teamed up with wellbeing specialists NAPA, to provide an engaging festive cocktail competition for care home residents. Together they are challenging care homes to host a cocktail party, whilst at the same time encouraging residents to participate through designing their own cocktail.

The winning entry will receive a Lakeland Dairies activity pack, including a cocktail shaker, Relish Aqua Paint set and a case of delicious Millac Gold Double. Every entry will also receive a helpful roll of piping bags.


Simply ask residents to draw, paint, or make their cocktail and email the designs to Lakeland Dairies by midnight on the 4th December 2022


Full terms and conditions


To support care caterers even further, Lakeland Dairies have also released a fortified recipe and activity resource, Fortified Focus: Festive Tipples. The resource demonstrates how to deliver fortified food and drink in a delicious, appetising, and engaging way.

It is packed with delicious alcoholic and non-alcoholic cocktail recipes. The drinks are fortified with Lakeland Dairies 100% Dairy Skimmed Milk Powder, which is full of the goodness of milk and recommended by dietitians for fortification because it has the ideal combination of protein and calories.

Each recipe has been carefully created by Lakeland Dairies, a registered dietitian, and a specialist care home chef. Together they have successfully overcome some of the enormous challenges faced by care caterers when fortifying drinks, namely that of how to devise recipes which are high in protein and still delicious to consume.


Dietitian Rachael Masters who worked on the project comments: “As dietitians, we promote 100% dairy skimmed milk powder for fortification because of the protein content. An ideal milk powder for fortifying would have at least 50 calories and 5g protein per heaped tablespoon (15g)”

Lakeland Dairies 100% Dairy Skimmed Milk Powder exceeds dietitian’s ideal requirement from a milk powder for fortification, as it has 55kcal and 5.5.g of protein in a single heaped tablespoon.

Lakeland Dairies creates professional dairy products for chefs which have been carefully crafted and treated to have great taste, and to provide a longer life for added convenience in busy kitchens. With a proud heritage in dairy farming, Lakeland Dairies is a 100% farmer-owned and managed dairy co-operative, whose products are made from high-quality milk from the lush green pastures of its 3,200 family farms.
