I’m not a big drinker but when I do drink, I enjoy a nice cocktail.
I like my cocktails the way I like my meals – as simple as possible with as few ingredients as I can get away with and my taste has certainly improved since the time that I thought that mixing a cheap bottle of red wine that I won in a raffle with a bottle of Lambrini would make a lovely rose wine. FYI – it doesn’t.
One of my favourite cocktails is the Lumumba:
Apologies for the blurry picture, it was taken by my husband after one too many Lumumbas 😉
Traditionally the Lumumba is made from Brandy, hot chocolate and whipped cream – kind of like an Irish coffe but without the coffee but my favourite version of it uses chocolate milkshake instead of the hot chocolate.
All you do is add brandy to a tall glass (as much or as little as you want) and top up with chocolate milkshake. Add some ice and a straw and you’re good to go.
How easy is that?
