1. To make a Easter Cocktail you’ll first need to flavour your vodka with a vanilla pod. Simply cut the vanilla pod lengthways to expose the flavoursome seeds inside and drop the scored vanilla pod into your bottle of vodka. Reseal and shake bottle several times a day for at least two days, preferably a week.
2. To make the drink, MUDDLE cardamom pods in base of shaker. Add other ingredients, SHAKE with ice and strain back into shaker. DRY SHAKE (without ice) and fine strain into chilled glass.
Dust with chocolate powder or crumbled Cadbury's Flake bar with mini chocolate eggs in orange zest nest on rim.
Chocolate cocktail with extra interest thanks to vanilla and cardamom.
Created in 2003 by Simon King at MJU Bar, Millennium Hotel, London, England. The egg white was our addition to Simon's recipe - it seemed appropriate to add egg given this is an Easter Cocktail. We also added the orange zest nest of chocolate eggs.
