‘A b&b is one of my favourites. It’s strong, full of flavour and fun to order at the pub as it usually takes ages for the bartender to find the Bénédictine.’
25ml brandy + 25ml Bénédictine. Serve in a tumbler with ice and a cocktail cherry.

‘The bittersweet flavours of a bicyclette are as suited to a cold winter’s night as they are to a hot summer’s day.’
+ 200ml dry white wine. Serve in a wine glass with ice and a slice of lemon.

‘It would have to be a scotch & soda.
It’s simple, light and easy to drink. My top whiskies to use would be Bowmore 15, Talisker Storm or Oban 14. The hint of smoke really carries through.‘
50ml whisky + 125ml soda. Serve over ice in a highball glass.

I’ve familiarised a lot of my guests with the alaska. Yellow Chartreuse is a herbal liqueur with a variety of spices and honey – perfect for the season. 60ml gin + 20ml Yellow Chartreuse. Stir in a mixing glass with lots of ice, then strain into a small cocktail glass.
