Let me start this post by assuring you that as I’m writing this post at 12.35pm on a monday afternoon, I am not tasting this drink. Well I will be, but not for another approx 8 hours :)
I was watching Superscrimpers on channel 4 (http://www.channel4.com/programmes/superscrimpers) the other night, when they were doing a section on cocktails on the cheap. They made this drink up in under 10 minutes so I thought ‘hey! this would make a fab Christmas drink’ (thinking it would taste like a well-known Irish drink which is nice over ice…)
So, when I visited Ikea over the weekend and saw nice glass bottles for I think about £1.50, I got one to test it out.
Here’s the recipe http://www.channel4.com/programmes/superscrimpers/episode-guide/series-3/episode-4 Scroll down to the comments and you’ll find it.

I had the tiniest bit (well I had to taste it) and confirmed to myself, that not only is it SO easy to make, it does taste pretty much like that Irish drink. I will definitely be getting more glass bottles soon to make more (and try different flavours) as gifts for Christmas. Some pretty labels would complete the look…
Here’s the finished product-
