Ever had Jamaican ginger Cake? It's a super rich and gooey Cake, perfect for the cooler nights. Imagine how good it would be used in place of sponge fingers in tiramisu. That's this drink.

A bit of condensed milk at the bottom for richness, tonka bean old Tom gin, sumatran espresso for earthy chocolatey bitterness, Mr Black for that essential coffee flavour, and a syrup made with muscovado sugar and all the components of a mince pie. Christmas can't come soon enough for me!



 45 ml New Tom Gin(Illicit Spirits)
 30 ml Sumatran Espresso
 20 ml Mr Black Cold Brew Liqueur
 25 ml Ginger wine
 20 ml Xmas Spice syrup
 1 tbsp Sweetened Condensed Milk
 3 dashes Angostura Cocoa bitters



Add the condensed milk to the bottom of the coupe or martini glass


Shake all other ingredients vigorously with ice


Strain over a teaspoon to layer on top of the condensed milk


Garnish with some cocoa nibs

Xmas spice syrup
