The perfect accompaniment to a spiced steak dinner with all the trimmings… Nick (Brand Head Bartender for The New World Trading Company) has created this amazing concoction of sweet, sour and spicy.

What you need:

  •  4 wedges of fresh lime
  • 1 sliced red chilli (deseeded)
  • 15ml Vanilla sugar syrup
  • 45ml Velho Barrerio
  • 7.5ml Benedictine
  • 4 healthy dashes of Tabasco Original
  • extra lime wedges and fresh red chilli to garnish
  • Crushed ice cubes

What to do:

  1. Add the crushed ice to your serving glass and set aside.
  2. Muddle the juice of the lime, chilli slices and vanilla together in a cocktail mixer (if you don’t have all the cocktail utensils you can bash up in a pestle and mortar).
  3. Add all the other ingredients to a mixer and shake well.
  4. Pour the well-shaken mixture over crushed ice, and top with a cap of extra crushed ice.
  5. Garnish with chilli, lime wedges and serve.
