Fancy a festive dessert in the form of a Christmas cocktail? This tipple will certainly satisfy your sweet tooth!
With hints of vanilla, almond and salted caramel brownie, it’s a heavenly yuletide treat you can enjoy after your Christmas dinner.
The M&S Salted Caramel Brownie Cream Liqueur is £12 a bottle and has a 15% ABV. Its a blend of double cream, alcohol, salted caramel and sea salt, and is easy to drink served chilled over ice on its own. It’s thick, creamy and indulgent, making it the perfect drink to accompany putting up the Christmas tree, watching festive films, or wrapping presents on Christmas Eve.
I wanted to incorporate this luxurious liqueur into a cocktail that was still sweet, with a touch of spice to give that warm fuzzy feeling – like being wrapped in a blanket.
I paired the liqueur with Captain Morgan Original spiced Gold, made using real vanilla. It’s matured in bourbon barrels for a rich, sweet flavour with a warm finish. I also used amaretto, which is an almond flavoured liqueur, making it taste of marzipan.
Here’s how to make the Salted Caramel Brownie Christmas Cocktail.
You will need:
100ml M&S Salted Caramel Brownie Flavour Cream Liqueur
25ml Spiced Rum
How to make the Salted Caramel Brownie Christmas Cocktail:
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and add one shot of rum, a double measure of amaretto and four shots of the M&S Salted Caramel Brownie Flavour Cream Liqueur.
Secure the shaker and shake it (like a polaroid picture) until condensation forms on the outside and it feels cold to touch. Take care to ensure all the cream liqueur has fully combined with the other ingredients.
Using a strainer – my shaker has one built in – strain the liquid into a glass. I’m using a coupe glass, but a martini glass would also work.
To finish off the cocktail you could add a sprinkle of cinnamon or some chocolate shavings.
