Scottish Leader Blazer cocktail

A delicious festive favourite cocktail to get your festive season well underway.


50ml Scottish Leader Signature

50ml tea mix

20 ml chocolate syrup

10 ml orange vermouth

10ml lemon juice

Chocolate shavings or nutmeg to garnish




Tea mix:  Add 2 tablespoons of Lapsang Souchong and 2 tablespoons of honeybush tea to 500ml hot water and 250ml hot milk (or almond milk). Let it steep until cooled down.  Strain the mixture into a suitably sized container and store in the fridge.

Chocolate syrup:  Add 2 pieces of 100% cocoa paste to 1 cup of white sugar and 1.5 cups of water to a pot. Stir and bring to the boil.  Simmer for 10 minutes, then strain the mixture into a suitably sized container and store in the fridge.

Orange vermouth:  Pour 500ml red vermouth (Martini or Cinzano) into a sealable jar or container.  Add the skin of 1 orange and seal the jar or container.  Let it steep for 2 days.

Preparing the cocktail, using the blaze (heat and flame) method (be careful!)

Combine all ingredients in a small pot or metal jug with two handles. Have an extra small pot or metal jug ready. Heat the ingredients to just before boiling point.  Set the mixture alight with a lighter or chef’s torch.  Slowly pour it back and forth from one pot or jug to the next and repeat 6 times.  Extinguish the flame and pour the cocktail into a heatproof tumbler to serve. Garnish with chocolate shavings or nutmeg.
