Classics Sparkling Ginger makes perfect pairing for pasta on BBC Radio 2

Classics Sparkling Ginger made its second appearance on national radio when it was chosen as the perfect partner for a tomato pasta dish on Simon Mayo’s BBC Radio 2 programme.

Described as fantastic, fiery, low in sugar and “ginger for ginger lovers”, our Sparkling Ginger was chosen to pair with Nigel Barden’s Pasta al Forno di Cinzia on the drivetime show.

We love a good pasta dish and Nigel’s recipe with sweet British plum tomatoes, mozzarella and parmesan sounds perfect for summer, with the added zing of a bottle of Classics Sparkling Ginger to accompany it.

It’s the second time Classics Sparkling Ginger has been chosen by Simon Mayo and Nigel Barden as their featured soft drink, having previously been matched with an Iranian chicken dish made with spinach and prunes.

If you didn’t catch the show, you can listen back on BBC iPlayer here - – fast forward to about 1 hour 15 minutes for the recipe and review.
