Introducing 'The Mellow Yellow' cocktail - Smooth and fragrant with a hint of the exotic. 

For those of you, like myself, who do not have the fortune to winter in sunnier climes, sit back savour a Mellow Yellow and allow your imagination to flow.

The fragrance and hint of the exotic from the Gorse flowers, Gorse Syrup and Crème de Pèches offers a depth, that is greatly appreciated on a cold blustery February day in the West of Ireland!

You will need:

  • 35ml Spiced Vodka (I used a spiced vodka that I had made before christmas, infused with a vanilla pod, nutmeg, cloves, bay leaves and allspice berries )- It was ideal for the cocktail. Regular Vodka will suffice though.
  • 15ml Crème de Pèches Liquer
  • 10ml Gorse Syrup 
  • 35ml fresh orange juice
  • 1 egg white
  • Gorse Flowers to garnish

...Sit back, raise your feet and enjoy.
