Here’s one for those who like a bit of heat in their glass. And we don’t mean the fire that comes from a flame. This warming whiskey (yes, that ‘e’ is intended – we’re talking Irish here) marries chocolate and chillies to great effect. Just be sure to wash your hands thoroughly after handling those chillies…
25ml The Wild Geese Classic Blend Whiskey
1 fresh chilli (mildly hot)
20ml chocolate liqueur
2 drops of chocolate bitters
grated chocolate, orange zest and chilli to garnish
Muddle the chilli in a rocks glass to release the flavours. Add the liqueur, bitters and mix. Add the ice and stir. Add the Drambuie and the whiskey and stir all ingredients together. To garnish, grate some dark chocolate over the top of the drink, spritz with the orange zest and finish with a piece of chocolate and a chilli on top.
