Old Fashioned Bunny Cocktail
The Old-Fashioned was first invented back in the early 1800’s and is recognized as one of the six basic drinks, along with the Daiquiri, Jack Rose, Manhattan, Martini and Sidecar.
The first record of an Old Fashioned was in 1806, when a New York paper referred to a cocktail as “a potent concoction of spirits, bitters, water, and sugar”
At the time it was also known as a ‘bittered sling’ and was more commonly used as a breakfast drink to ready the day, or even to cure headaches. (Not recommended today!)
It was one of the very first Cocktails hence the name – the “Old Fashioned” way to make a cocktail.
This is my easter version with Bourbon, brown sugar and chocolate bitters – and to top it off – a super fun Marshmallow foam – because it is Easter! ????
The Toasted Marshmallow syrup is so good in this foam. It is very sweet, but provides such an awesome Marshmallow flavour which goes so well with the Bourbon. You can also substitute this for another flavoured syrup or Maple Syrup.
The Four Roses Bourbon is really smooth and mellow with a hint of pear and apple and the Aztec Chocolate Bitters give a really lovely spicy finish to this drink.
- 2 egg whites
- 90 ml water
- 60 ml Monin Toasted Marshmallow syrup
- 30 ml lemon juice
- Pinch cream of tarter
- For the Marshmallow Foam, mix together all ingredients well and chill
- Either pour into a cream whipper or use an immersion blender to whip the foam really well.
- For the Cocktail, in a cocktail mixing glass stir the bourbon with lots of ice
- In a whisky glass, add brown sugar, soak with 4 splashes of bitters and muddle or stir to mix with a dash of water.
- Strain the whisky into the glass and top with marshmallow foam
- Garnish with finely grated chocolate and orange zest
This is a relatively guilt-free cocktail, as I feel like I am having a healthy juice, but with the extra kick (enter Mule pun) of beautiful Dart Gin and Stones Ginger beer. This is based on a Moscow Mule, a very popular cocktail invented in 1941 at New York's Chatham...
I am a big Beatles fan and Beatles fans will probably know that The Brandy Alexander was John Lennon's favorite cocktail. He said that it tasted like milkshakes – and he was not wrong! However, the Brandy Alexander is said to be named after Troy Alexander who...
A sago plum pudding at Christmas time is a family tradition for me. I love the texture Sago adds to this pudding, This is based on my Nanna’s recipe, but I have added some amazing Turkish delight flavours – which I love!!! This is probably the best Christmas pudding I...
