To serve Immediately
  1. Put all ingredients into a cocktail shaker with 2 ice cubes

  2. Shake for 15 seconds and strain into a martini glass

  3. Serve (garnish with a few chunks of cracked nutmeg if desired)

To make up a batch to bottle/ gift
  1. Work out the size of your bottles

  2. 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

  3. Pour the ingredients into a jug to combine then decant into the bottle(s)

  4. 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
