Salted Caramel White Russian

An indulgent after dinner drink to enjoy by the fire.

Ingredients:
50ml Salted caramel vodka
35ml Irish cream (instead of baileys)
35ml Amaretto
50ml Cream

Pour in a tumbler.
Finish with an additional dribble of salted caramel.

 

Chestnut Whiskey Sour

Ideal as an aperitif, our whiskey sour is given a festive twist by the addition of chestnut cream, which can be found at many specialist grocers. We use a single malt whiskey for a cleaner taste.

Ingredients:
50ml whiskey – not a peaty one – single malt or blended
25ml lemon juice
10ml simple sugar syrup
Teaspoon chestnut cream
Ice cubes

Mix all ingredients together in a cocktail shaker and shake vigorously.
Pour over ice.
Serve in a classic tumbler.
