  • 30ml Craigellachie 13
  • 20ml Luxardo Marschino
  • 25ml merlot reduction
  • 25ml fig syrup
  • 15ml lemon Juice

Place all ingredients in a shaker and shake with ice for 10 seconds, then double strain into a snifter glass. Garnish with a grating of nutmeg.

For the merlot reduction, pour 750ml into a pan and reduce until only 375ml of the liquid remains. Bottle and store in the fridge. This has a shelf life of five days.

For the fig syrup:

  • 1500g sugar
  • 750ml water
  • 12 figs
  • 10g salt

Add water and sugar to a pan, apply heat and stir until dissolved. Cut the 12 figs in half, and gently simmer for 15 minutes. Remove from heat, and allow to macerate further for 24 hours. Strain, bottle and store in the fridge. This has a shelf life of two to three weeks.
