Hazardous ingredients

Nocello walnut liqueur is potentially hazardous to those with allergy or intolerance.

Review:

A great after-dinner cocktail any time of year but particularly appropriate over the festive period due to its ingredients – Pedro Ximénez sherry tastes like Christmas pudding, mandarins are not just for Christmas and walnuts are best cracked whilst watching a Christmas special.

History:

Created in December 2013 by yours truly and Paloma Alos at the Cabinet Room, London, England.
