A warming winter cocktail
Whether served hot or cold, winter drinks are insulation against winter’s worst. They’re heavier and more complex than warm weather cocktails, often forgoing the juices and club sodas that hearken to sunnier times. They offer darker flavours – oak, cinnamon, apple, and honey, with citrus added to brighten and ward off scurvy in the lean times before spring.
From coast to coast, this cocktail is exactly what you need when the cold wind starts blowing.
2 ounces coconut rum
2 ounces Irish cream
1 ounces hazelnut liqueur
3 1/2 ounces melted chocolate
3 1/2 ounces cream
1 dash chocolate syrup
Place the chocolate syrup around the glass then place the other ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice and shake. Strain into glass.
Ultra Liquors stock all of the above ingredients so do pop around and stay warm this winter.
