Cocktail Hour: Bakewell Tartini

Since discovering this cocktail last Christmas - and yes, it is definitely still a cocktail even if it only has two ingredients - I've been forcing it onto friends and acquaintances because it is criminally delicious. I've named it the Bakewell Tartini as it tastes just like the almond pastry. It's uncanny. You'll love this if you love marzipan, and even if you don't, give it a tiny try. I'm pretty sure it'll win you over.

You'll need:

  • A measure of amaretto
  • Cranberry juice
Shake it!

Pop some ice into a tumbler. Pour over the amaretto, top up with cranberry juice and stir. Sit back and marvel at how two ingredients can make such an awesome drink. Tell all your friends. Claim to have invented the name 'bakewell tartini'. Go on, I don't mind.

  1. Oh my god, this sounds amazing. I'm a bakewell tart addict, so the prospect of a bakewell tart in alcoholic form is seriously the most exciting thing that has happened to me this week!!!

  2. Try it with some Grenadine in - makes all the difference

  3. threesmallapples - they are LUSH. They're quite sweet, but an excellent way to start the evening.

    little-ems - top tip! That would really bring out the cherry flavour.
