Simnel Cake Sour

Are you a fan of an Amaretto Sour? Then the Simnel Cake Sour is just the thing for you.

Serves: 4

Preparation time: 15 minutes

What do you need? 

  • 25ml kirsch or brandy

  • 100ml amaretto

  • Juice 1 lemon

  • Juice 1 orange

  • 100ml Madeira

  • Ice

  • 50g golden marzipan 

  • 100g golden caster sugar

  • A thick strip of orange zest

  • 1 tsp cinnamon

  • 1 tsp mixed spice

  • Pinch dried ginger

How do you make it? 

  • Start by making the spiced syrup. Put the 100g golden caster sugar, the thick strip of orange zest, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp mixed spice, and a pinch of dried ginger into a saucepan with 100ml water. Gently bring to the boil, then turn the heat off and allow to cool completely. Once cold, pour the mixture through a sieve into a jug and chill until needed. Will keep in the fridge for up to 1 week. 

  • Heat grill to high, then roll the marzipan into 4 balls and place on a baking sheet and grill for 2-3 minutes or just until the very top of the marzipan is toasted. Leave to cool. Then, when cold enough to handle thread them on the cocktail stick. 

  • Fill 4 tumblers with ice then pour the brandy, Amaretto, lemon and orange juice, Madeira and 50ml of the syrup into a cocktail shaker with a large handful of ice. Shake well until the outside of the shaker feels icy cold. Strain into the tumblers and add the marzipan garnish. Serve immediately.
