Cocktails

Who doesn’t  love a cocktail? Okay some people don’t but I do so I thought I’d share my favourites.

Ginger

Take a tall glass and throw in some ice, throw in a nice big glug or two of something smokey, I go for Famous Grouse Black, take the glass to half way with Ginger Wine and then top up with Alcoholic ginger ale, wedge of lime, drink.

Maple Syrup

Take a tumbler and add a tablespoon of maple syrup, good maple syrup, and some ice, add some half decent Bourbon, I like Wild Turkey, gently swirl around the to join the liquid, drink.

Old Fashioned

Take your tumbler and a little brown sugar, a teaspoon of water a twist of orange peel and a splash of bitters or, now stay with me, Buckfast but just half a teaspoon now. Crush the sugar until dissolved and add a cube or two of ice and coat both the ice and glass with the liquid. Add a generous measure of a nice smooth Bourbon, Woodford Reserve works well for me, Add another twist of orange and serve, to me, all night long.

The Captain.
