Boozy Fennel and Herb Potatoes

Introduction

These potatoes are a firm favourite in my house. I stumbled across them by mistake by merely throwing what I had in the cupboard into a roasting dish. I mostly use new potatoes and make sure I have cut a few up if not all, so they soak up all the lovely juices. A great accompaniment with grilled fish, meat or simply with a salad. Enjoy!
