Ember Gaudee Gingerette Noel 75 Yule Tide Mule

Shake all the ingredients, except the garnish, vigorously in a cocktail shaker with ice.

Once chilled, strain into a pre-chilled champagne flute and rim the glass with the raspberry powder.


Best enjoyed before a festive feast, this vibrant cocktail inspired by the glowing embers of a fireplace.

10ml Campari Bitter
30ml Carrot juice
5ml Agave syrup
1 tbsp Lemon curd
Garnish Raspberry powder

Add the whisky, port and mandarin juice into a shaker with plenty of ice.

Shake, before ‘throwing’ the ingredients into a smaller vessel to release the aromatics and enhance aeration.

Transfer back to the shaker and repeat three times. Pour into a tall glass with ice cubes, top with Dandelion & Burdock and garnish with redcurrant and mint sprig.
