Method

Cooking time: 5 mins

This Easter-inspired cocktail is nothing short of rich and delicious. Made using egg yolk as opposed to the usual white found in most egg-based cocktails, it adds body and a beautiful golden opacity. The addition of sherry and aromatic cinnamon create a flavour not dissimilar to a hot cross bun.

  1. Shake everything except the soda in a cocktail shaker filled with ice.
  2. Strain the liquid out of the shaker, get rid of the ice, then shake again to aerate (known as a dry shake).
  3. Run a slice of lemon around the edge of a chilled highball glass and dip into a dish coated with a layer of cinnamon to coat the rim.
  4. Finally, pour the liquid in to a chilled highball glass and top up a little with soda water.
