Screen Shot 2014-12-13 at 17.48.31

This is one to pull out the bag if you’re one to show off at a Christmas party. Created by ‘The Maestro’ Salvatore Calabrese, and served at his eponymous bar at The Playboy Club in London, the Christmas Puddingtini is certainly a fire starter. Exercise caution when making this cocktail.

 

Ingredients:
75ml frozen Tanqueray Gin
10ml Courvosier Cognac
10ml White Creme de Cacao
Dash of Sambuca
Miniature Christmas pudding

 

Method:
Pour all of the ingredients, except for the Sambuca, into a mixing glass with ice and stir, before straining into a chilled cocktail glass. Using either spoon or a metal cocktail stirrer, dip a mini Christmas pudding into a small liqueur glass filled with Sambuca and soak, before lighting your pudding and dropping it into the prepared cocktail. Eat the pudding and enjoy the cocktail.
