How to Make an Essex Cocktail

An Essex cocktail is a bold, intensely flavoured drink that fans of strong cocktails should really enjoy. The Essex combines four alcoholic ingredients without any mixers, so make sure you don't over-pour when making this drink for party or dinner guests. The Essex cocktail makes a wonderful drink after dinner, and it pairs very well with dark fruit, vanilla and chocolate desserts. This recipe makes one Essex cocktail, served straight up in a chilled cocktail glass.
