Okay hands up who wants a whisky cocktail? Whisky, apple and ginger ale. That will do nicely. Some days you just need a drink. Or is that just me? Hmmm perhaps I have an issue? Maybe it is just part of being a mother? Or maybe it is the fault of the gingerbread men, which is a long story that I am not emotionally stable enough to share yet! Glad we had this talk! 😉
It has been a long evening, so helping it on its way (and probably explaining the gingerbread issue!!) was a rich, delicious and grown up feeling cocktail. I say grown up feeling as I am not sure real grown ups have cocktails on a Thursday night. Maybe I am mistaken, happily I am not a real grown up yet so I can’t comment further!
What I can comment on is the fact that whisky and apple go amazingly well together. Perk it up with some ginger ale, a squeeze of lemon and you have something delicious. I am talking seriously quaffable! I saw Matt Preston make this in one of those snippets during the adverts of Masterchef and since then it has been on my list of things I must try. And as it was so seriously quaffable I thought I would share it with you. (p.s how great is the word quaffable? It is up there with scrumptious as cool foodie words) .
