2014-12-07 21.09.38If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know all about #chefnick. If you don’t, then let me fill you in…
I am lucky enough to be the girlfriend of a rather dashing fellow (that’s right, I said fellow), who is a dab hand in the kitchen. You name it, he can make it, and make it taste damn good at that. And so all these snazzy things he makes I end up putting on Instagram with the hashtag #chefnick.
Today however, I’m talking drinks as opposed to food. Winter cocktails if you will. And boy, is this one a good’un. (Plus it’s suuuper easy to make – even I could do it.. πŸ˜‰ )
To start it off you will need a bottle of the above ^^ Jack Daniels Tennessee honey flavoured whiskey.2014-12-07 20.47.58Chop up an apple or two and add a few slices of lemon. Pop these into a saucepan and top up with apple juice.2014-12-07 20.50.00Add a few cloves and a cinnamon stick and pop on the hob to warm.2014-12-07 20.57.32Meanwhile, prep the alcohol! Add an extra slice of lemon into your cup for good measure and pour yourself a double measure (or however much you fancy) of whiskey.2014-12-07 21.03.52Pop your measures in, and now all you need to do is wait for your apple juice concoction to finish warming.2014-12-07 21.04.09
2014-12-07 21.04.35Once it’s sufficiently warmed, use a pasta server to pop some of the apple and lemon slices into your cup, and then grab a ladle and start adding in that apple juice. (Try to avoid the cloves – you don’t want to end up choking on one of those!)2014-12-07 21.04.59

2014-12-07 21.09.07Tada!
Don’t be put off if you’re not a big fan of whiskey, because these are absolutely delicious, and I’m definitely not a frequent whiskey drinker. Perhaps it’s the honey flavour that makes it, or maybe it’s my love for apple juice… I don’t know, but what I do know is that I’m going to be requesting these more often! πŸ˜‰
