Christmas cocktail number 3 is the ‘Nutcracker’. We wanted to incorporate a chestnut element into the drink without using a liqueur so we actually sous-vide @monkeyshoulder whisky with chestnuts from the garden. Cooking this at a controlled temperature for an extended period of time really helped maximise the amount of flavour we could extract. The results were pretty impressive! ~
• Chestnut infused whisky • Saliza Amaretto
• Antica formula
• Walnut bitters ~

Next up on our merry Christmas Cocktail list is this! ‘It’s not Terry’s it’s mine’ 🍊 🍫 🎄 ~ 
Inspired by Dawn French and a certain chocolate orange company advert that ran in the late nineties, We thought we’d try to recreate this sweet treat in cocktail form. ~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
• @diplomaticorum • Orange curaçao • Aztec Chocolate bitters
• orange bitters • Pedro Ximenez ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
To Garnish we dipped our glass in melted dark chocolate and then placed them in the fridge. Delicious 😋 #christmascocktails #christmastime

With the festive season in full swing I thought it was only fitting to launch a Christmas themed cocktail list for December 🎄 🍸 
First on the list is ‘Pine’
~
•Scots pine needle and juniper infused @chase_distillery vodka
•Lime cordial •Dry vermouth
~
Juniper and pine are from the same genus and are classified as pinales. They share the same chemical compound called ‘A-pinene’ which interestingly you can also find in peppermint, a candy cane garnish seemed more than appropriate 😉

Fantastic meal the other day @lachozamexican. The Nacho portions are massive and I struggled to even eat half! We obviously had to get on the Mezcal whilst there, @dnyuar definitely approved! 😜#brighton #food #mezcallovers
