Bourbon's distinctive character shines through but is softened and flavoured by cacao and a hint of citrus.
Vermouth-based and bittersweet with anise and fennel. Depending on your scotch, also faint smokiness.
Basically an Aviation but with triple sec in place of maraschino and lime instead of lemon juice. Gaz used lime juice because he didn't have any lemons
This tasty sour combines the aromatics of pisco and elderflower in an intriguing variation on the Margarita. Consider smoothing with fresh egg white.
Bittersweet, tequila-based, and Negroni-like. Classically garnished with a lemon zest twist but better with grapefruit.
Enroulée is the French word for 'curled' and this version of the classic Satan's Whiskers is curled by the use of mandarine liqueur in place of the Grand

This balanced Gin Collins is sweetened by ginger and orange liqueurs.
Liqueurs combine harmoniously with lime and tequila in this tangy, fruity Margarita. However, I remain unconvinced by Hpnotiq.

Bittersweet cognac-influenced palate with lingering flavours of liquorice root, honey, pine and eucalyptus from the Suze.
A light, sweet and sour, herbal and fruity aperitif cocktail.

A variation on the Negroni. More gin and less liqueur make for an unusual bittersweet Martini.
Rich and indeed sophisticated, this Scotch-based drink has a zing of ginger spice with a zest of citrus from the garnish.
