12 Cocktails of Christmas #5
THE SUSSEX CHERRY SNOWBALL
• 1 shot Cherry Herring liqueur
• 1 shot Malibu rum
• 1/2 shot lime juice
• 2 shots of cranberry juice
• 2 drops Fee brothers chocolate bitters
Prepare glasses beforehand by spooning on chocolate sauce to the outside rim of the glass and allowing to dribble down slightly. Dust with coconut and put in the freezer for 5 mins.
Add juice, spirits and bitters to an ice filled shaker and shake hard for 15 seconds to ensure proper dilution and frothing. Strain into chocolate rimmed glasses and add a cherry on top.
This drink also works well with if you reduce the cranberry by half and add a shot of Bourbon in its place for an extra kick.
(For garnish: dried coconut, cherry, chocolate sauce. A quick and easy sauce recipe is add hot chocolate powder to hot water in 70:30 ratio and cool to slightly below room temp)
