Lemon cheesecake cocktail

Say cheers to the holiday season with this beautiful drink.

adore this cocktail, I first tasted this at Restaurant bar and grill Liverpool. The smell of it before you even get to taste it is Devine! 
This was definitely one I wanted to recreate at home, and so I was thrilled to get the recipe from the mixologist. 

Despite it's name this cocktail boasts the holy trinity of festive smells and tastes, Cinnamon, Gingerbread and nuts making it the perfect Christmas tipple.
Visually it looks very much like that distinctive smooth yellow drink Advocaat we all associate with Christmas. 

So this year why not try this cocktail as the perfect alternative to Eggnog.

I used the Monin range of syrups. You can find these in any good supermarket, generally in the coffee section but if you have trouble finding a stockist, Costa coffee outlets sell them. It's the brand they use to flavour their coffee's.  


20ml Pinot Grigio
25ml Limoncello
5 ml Gingerbread syrup
5 ml Cinnamon Syrup
20 ml Frangelico hazelnut liqueur 
20ml cream
10ml milk

Glass style - Martini glass
Method - Shake with ice - Strain
Garnish - Sprinkle with cinnamon 
Simply shake all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice just long enough for the cocktail shaker to feel cold, about 15 seconds. Pour into a Martini glass and dust the top with Cinnamon.

 Happy Christmas !
