Flying Grasshopper (Difford's)
A Grasshopper with a splash of vodka, this creamy after dinner cocktail is all the better for that vodka.
We also like, indeed are undecided if we prefer, this simpler but more alcoholic and calorific recipe: 1 vodka, ¾ green crème de menthe, ¾ white crème de menthe and 1 single cream.
Whichever recipe, this after-dinner cocktail is minty fresh with indulgent chocolate - reminiscent of a choc mint ice-cream.
Hemingway Special (IBA)
A true Hemingway Special should be served without the addition of sugar. However, Hemingway had a hardened palate and more delicate drinkers may prefer adding some simple syrup.
The Alexander that we have here is made with cognac. We found this through the International Bartenders Association (IBA) and it is really the most basic Alexander recipe we could find. This Alexander is actually a variation of the Alexander that was invented in the 1930s that was made with gin. This Alexander with cognac and Creme de Cacao really has a nice deep spicy chocolate flavour and the cream creates a wonderfully silky profile.

For the perfect salt rim, liquidize sea salt to make it finer, then run a lime wedge around the outside edge of the glass before dipping the rim in salt. Rimming only half the glass with salt gives the drinker the option of enjoying the cocktail with or without salt.
Espresso Martini (IBA)

Forget the 'Vodka Red Bull', this is the cocktail connoisseur's way of combining caffeine and vodka.
French Martini (IBA)

Raspberry and pineapple laced with vodka. Easy drinking and very fruity.
Pisco Sour (IBA)

The flavor of agave is king in this simple Margarita, made without the traditional orange liqueur.
Vesper Dry Martini (Difford's)
Many bartenders advocate that a Martini should be stirred and not shaken, some citing the ridiculous argument that shaking will “bruise the gin.” If you like your Martinis shaken then avoid the possible look of distaste from your server and order a Vesper. This particular Dry Martini is always shaken, an action that aerates the drink, and makes it colder and more dilute than simply stirring. It also gives the drink a slightly clouded appearance and can leave small shards of ice on the surface of the drink - easily prevented by the use of a fine strainer when pouring.
Yellow Bird (IBA)
A sweet and sour cocktail with four different fruits, rum and a splash of Galliano.
Devil's Share (Difford's)
This cocktail is really smooth on the toungue because of the maple syrup. The citrus from the lemon and sugar from the maple syrup give a great sour flavor profile. One of my favorites, mostly because of the maple syrup.
Ill assume that this delicious cocktails name is derived from its tropical flavors (Jamaican), and its mind numbing effects (Quaalude). With five spirits, and a bit of cream to blend it all together, this rich drink is a great dessert cocktail that will definitely keep the evening going. We hope youll try our featured cocktail, the Jamaican Quaalude!
Dopo Cena (Difford's)
Under the white head lies a dessert cocktail with aromatic cherry and marzipan flavours.
Jack-O-Monk Milkshake (Beta)
A nice creamy pumpkin spice milkshake with a hint of coffee and hazelnut.
