  1. To make the white chocolate liqueur, put the milk, cream and condensed milk in a pan. Break the white chocolate into small squares and add to the liquid for sweetness. Heat gently until the chocolate has melted and then remove from the heat. Leave to cool and then stir in the vodka. Transfer to a sealed bottle and chill until required.

  2. For the strawberry syrup, put the strawberries in a pan with the caster sugar. Heat gently until the sugar melts and the strawberries start to break down. Bring to a simmer and simmer for 6-8 minutes. Remove from the heat and blitz to a smooth, fruity purée with a stick blender. Set aside until cool.

  3. To decorate the cocktail glasses, break the white chocolate into a shallow microwave-safe bowl and heat in the microwave in blasts of 30 seconds, until it has melted completely. Dip the rim of each cocktail glass into the melted chocolate and turn to coat the rims in a thin layer. Place in the fridge until the chocolate hardens.

  4. For the cocktails, fill a cocktail shaker with ice and add the strawberry syrup, white chocolate liqueur and vermouth and shake well. Strain the creamy cocktail into the chilled glasses and serve garnished with strawberries.

  5. Use it up: The white chocolate liqueur can be used in lots of different ways. For a grown-up kick, add a splash to a mug of hot chocolate or coffee, drizzle it over ice cream or stir it into a batter for French toast.
