Caketails - Lemon Cheesecake

A little while ago I had an idea for a mini series. We love cocktails, you can check out our mini bar mini dresser here, but what could be more fun than cocktail recipes inspired by cakes?! 

So I had a go at one... and then never got round to posting the photos! 

Here it is - my lemon cheesecake inspired caketail!

  • Brandy (to give warmth and depth for the base)
  • Limoncello (for the creamy lemon filling)
  • Cava/Prosecco - I used a supermarket brut (for the lighter refreshing after taste)
  • Angostura Bitters 
  • Candied lemon peel (to garnish)

Pour a tiny splash of brandy in the bottom of your glass. Add a measure of limoncello and using a flat based cocktail spoon, pour a layer of cava onto the base of the cocktail. Hold the base of the spoon and pour the cava down the long handle, raising the spoon as you pour.  

I then added a splash of bitters (Because we stick them in everything!) and a garnish of candied lemon peel.

Creamy but refreshing! 

We have a well stocked bar at the moment on account of the muggy weather (Which never makes you feel like an adventurous cocktail does it?), being snowed under with work and having a hacking cough. You know when I am really ill as there are no wine glasses to wash up ;)

So when I am fighting fit watch out for some delicious caketail recipes coming up on the blog, ready for the festive party season.

Any favourite cakes to inspire or challenge me?! I am itching to use the white and milk chocolate liqueur next!
