River Styx

cocktail Dec 21, 2018

The combination of coffee and chocolate paired with whisky is what make this recipe stand out. It’s a wonderful after dinner drink, even having the potential of replacing a desert.

Allspice dram, or pimento liqueur is extra fitting this close to Christmas. It tastes a bit of ginger bread, and it’s very strong in flavour. Hence just adding a dash like in this recipe still impacts the cocktail quite a lot.
