Traditionally a Daiquiri should always be based on light rum but if I should feel like breaking with tradition and using aged rum, I find Embury's 8:2:1
A banana flavoured after-dinner sipper of cocktail with coconut water subtly flavouring and smoothing cognac.
A Godfather made with bourbon is The Boss so it stands to reason that with bottled-in-bond rye, it is the Big Boss.
Truly the milk of the Gods! Delicate bourbon with a touch of vanilla. Balanced rather than sweet, and milky rather than creamy.
Ripe pineapple, rich vanilla and honey laced with rum. The use of mead in this drink inspired the ‘Mediocre’ name.
A smooth creamy orangey dessert cocktail that is surprisingly boozy and far from overly sweet. However, be warned, it is thick and rich - just as a dessert
Richly flavoured and yet dry – rum and subtle desiccated coconut with monastic herbal sweetness dried by aromatic fino sherry and vanilla bitters.
A classic Margarita with a hint of vanilla.
A delicate, almond flavoured Vodka Martini.
Cognac, amaretto and amaro, aromatised with vanilla bitters and Islay single malt.
Aromatic green grapes, cream of soda vanilla and delicate ginger.
Named after the London rhyming slang for port and brandy, its base ingredients. The love interest comes courtesy of orange and vanilla.
