The Flame Haired Lady
About This Drink
This is our own Bonfire Night take on that classic drink The White Lady. Here we have just sweetened it up a little and added some winter spice by the addition of gingerbread syrup. You can buy a really good one from Monin syrups called Pain D’epices or if you’re feeling a little more adventurous try making your own with this recipe from Wandsworth’s finest; Nigella Lawson.
Shake this very hard, for a long time, maybe 45 seconds, in a cocktail shaker with just three or four ice cubes. You want to whip it into a nice foamy consistency.
Strain it into a chilled cocktail glass and serve with a portion of home-made gingerbread or a gingerbread man.
A dusting of ground cinnamon is also an optional adornment.
