I love making cocktails Dream even though I dont drink much these days.
A really simple one is Midori with fresh lemon juice and ice. The lemon cuts through the sweetness of the Midori.

Mavis, grab a shallow champagne glass, put in to the freezer for 5 mins.
Add crushed ice, one nip of Bailey's Irish Cream, one good nip of Drambui, stir once, drink slowly!

Bet you wont stop at one!

Tried itbigdad. Loved it. Sctually topping with coke was a nice touch. I am one of the very rare bords who likes dr pepper. That might be worth a try.

Its also because my ipad skills are terrible. Feedback comments corrections always welcome. I try to proof read but at times a bit sloppy.
Would you like a drink?

Mavis: Years ago( when I was younger) :character-oldtimer: , I tended bar at the actor club in pitt st sydney. It was Illegal for us to serve $nips as one drink & so we had to make One with two nips & coke & the other with the other two nips & coke, & give the customer a Highball glass with Ice so they could pour the two together! They were a potent drink!!! :eek
