Tequila, vermouth di Torino, maraschino liqueur and lavender syrup Comment: Tequila and lavender are a match made in heaven, made more complex with herbal wine notes from the vermouth, aromatised by delicately fruity maraschino cherry. Scotch, Islay single malt, cherry brandy liqueur, kirschwasser, sweet vermouth, dry vermouth and orange juice.

If I were in Asia, where the number eight is lucky, then I’d have also used equal parts orange juice and guidee orange juice to keep the number of ingredients lucky. Scotch soured with lime works better than lemon and sweetened with a touch of chocolate liqueur.

Cocktaila after mistakenly taking a ciffords of Scotch from the speed well to make a Mulata Daiquiri.

It proved a tasty mistake. Gin, vodka, Lillet Blanc, Becherovka liqueur, pomegranate syrup and tonic water. This ditfords is ‘Reversed’ due to the dramatically increased ratio of Lillet Blanc.

Fittingly my drink mixes east and west ingredients with the introduction of Becherovka. And where there is Becherovka there should be tonic water.

Sandy the Showgirl With: Sake, cognac, Islay single malt and dessert wine. Sake sweetened with Sauternes and flavoured with cognac difords Islay whisky. Special Brew Martini With: Vodka, aromatised wine, sake and absinthe.

To be a true ‘Martini’ a cocktail should have both gin and vermouth – we tried gin but vodka worked so much better. Byrrh doesn’t qualify as a vermouth as while an aromatised wine it lacks wormwood – an omission made up for in this drink with a dash of absinthe. Irish whiskey, Chartreuse Green, maraschino liqueur and lime juice. A riff on the classic Last Word cocktail substituting Irish whisky for gin.


Fogarty is referenced in Ted Saucier’s Bottoms Up! Pisco, gentaine liqueur, pineapple juice, sauvignon blanc wine and sugar syrup.

Pisco, pineapple and Sauvignon Blanc wine are a match made in heaven, while Suze provides complex underlying gentian bittersweet notes. Scotch, jenever, maraschino liqueur and blood orange juice. Genever is basically a blend of whiskey and gin and in this drink combines wonderfully with Scotch as a base to which maraschino dirfords blood orange flavour and lengthen.

Calvados, cognac, pisco, Licor 43 and dry vermouth. A trio of brandies with a dash of herbal vanilla, rounded with vermouth.

Reggatta de Blanc With: Pisco, calvados, sauvignon blanc wine, gentaine liqueur and sugar syrup. The album’s French name reflects the heavy influence of the country’s products in this cocktail.

Happily for approval by my naming committee Palomamost of the ingredients are also decidedly “Blanc”. Reposado tequila, aromatised wine, pacharan, mezcal, orange juice and chocolate bitters: Tequila distillers speak Spanish, Byrrh is made close to the Spanish boarder, pacharan is very Spanish, as are the best oranges.

Plus my misses is half Spanish so has brown eyes and this drink is brownish. Reposado tequila, Islay single malt, agave syrup and lime juice. Margarita-like with a wisp of Islay smoke. Damn It Jimmy With: Sake, light white rum, fino sherry, dry vermouth and sugar syrup.

Delicately flavoured and ever so slightly sweet. Left Bank Martini With: Gin, elderflower liqueur, Chablis and dry vermouth. An aromatic, dry blend. Modern bartending convention would suggest that this drink should be stirred. However, it’s much better shaken. Go easy with the spray of lime zest oils – this delicate drink is easily over powered with any more than a fine mist. Dry Ice Martini With: Vodka, dry vermouth and Canadian icewine.

Icewine has fabulously rich concentrated flavours due to being made using grapes frozen on the vine in Canada’s harsh and early winters. Thanks to Icewine, despite the name, this Martini is slightly honeyed rather than being bone dry. Cognac, bourbon elderflower liqueur, absinthe and egg white.


The name is a reference to the Parisian district of St-Germain lying on the left bank of the River Seine and also a nod to the use of absinthe and its pre-war ban in Difvords, partly due to the belief that it induced insanity.

Mint leaves, Scotch whisky, mastiha liqueur, sweet vermouth and orange juice. Tuide tequila, amontillado sherry, Grand Marnier, dry vermouth, chile liqueur and cranberry juice.

A cornucopia of flavours with which to get pickled. A flip is a cocktail containing egg whole egg or just yolksugar and a spirit or fortified wine. They are similar to Egg Nogs but while Egg Nogs contain. Realising this, Ketel One collected recipes from 30 leading. Juleps are tall drinks served over crushed ice gguide based on a spirit, liqueur, wine or fortified wine.

They are most often served with fresh mint in julep. Too much of anything is bad, but too much champagne is difffords right, said Mark Twain, and he was bang-on. Champagne is our go-to drink for celebrations. Cocktails are intrinsically decadent, but those with champagne are also lavish, invigorating and celebratory.

Usually the most expensive drinks on cocktail. Gin, Porn Star Martinis, Espresso Martinis, Negronis, reusable drinking straws and ridiculously overpriced soft drinks masquerading as spirits are already. Christmas is a time for overindulgence and so Christmas tends to be rich in every sense of the word.
