I actually created this cocktail to serve before our Burns Night supper but look at how pretty it is! It’s perfect for Valentines day too.
I wouldn’t recommend using a really, really, peaty whisky in this but you should still choose something nice and smooth, something you would be happy to drink neat. I used Bowmore Legend.
I haven’t tried this yet (though I’m sure I will) but I think this would also taste pretty good made with a nice bourbon too.
To make the honey syrup just mix equal parts honey and boiling water and then leave it to cool.
big handful of raspberries
juice of half a lemon
1 tbsp honey simple syrup
1 egg white
Mash together the raspberries and lemon juice and sieve out the seeds to leave you with a nice smooth puree.
Combine one tablespoon of this puree with all of the other ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with ice and shake vigorously for 1 minute.
Strain into a chilled coup or martini glass and allow the cocktail to separate into two layers before decorating with a few drops of the raspberry puree.
