Personalised Treats for Father’s Day – and a Sinful Chocolate and Whisky Dessert
Guest Feature by Sarah James:
My father is a young at heart 86 year old, who happens to enjoy a good single malt. Alexander and James do more than just stock some very nice drinks, they also offer an engraving service to make a gift even more special.
I think that the smile on my father’s face says it all here! a bottle of Talisker whisky from Alexander and James would definitely have been on his Father’s Day Gift bucket list.
The challenge was to bake/make a dessert based on a cocktail, using whisky as the inspiration. So I created a Rusty Nail on a Plate. This was a Scottish themed desert using whisky and Drambuie. It’s based on Delia Smith’s Truffle Torte in her Christmas book, which uses rum and Amaretti biscuits, and which is a staple of my mother’s party food repertoire.
