  • 10 ml/ 1 part Vanilla vodka
  • 10 ml/ 1 part Frangelico
  • 10 ml/ 1 part Amaretto
  • 20 ml/ 2 parts White chocolate liqueur


To serve Immediately

  • Put all ingredients into a cocktail shaker with 2 ice cubes
  • Shake for 15 seconds and strain into a martini glass
  • Serve (garnish with a few chunks of cracked nutmeg if desired)

To make up a batch to bottle/ gift

  • Work out the size of your bottles
  • The liquid above makes up 50ml/ 1/5 cup drink so you will need to calculate how many times you'll need to multiply the above recipe to fill your bottle(s) - e.g to fill a 150ml bottle multiply the quantity of all ingredients by 3
  • Pour the ingredients into a jug to combine then decant into the bottle(s)
  • This drink can be stored at room temperature since no fresh cream is involved and it keeps well. Just remember to shake with ice before serving to chill it nicely
