White Rabbit Ingredients:

  • 40ml Irish Cream Liqueur (we love Coole Swan)
  • 25ml gin
  • 25ml amaretto
  • 1tsp lemon curd
  • Garnish: edible flowers
  • (Makes 1)



  • Pour Coole Swan, gin and amaretto into a shaker.
  • Add the lemon curd and ice.
  • Shake well.
  • Strain into a chilled cocktail 
  • Garnish with edible flowers.

Top Tips to impress your friends and family with gorgeous garnishes:

Using fresh fruit as a cocktail garnish is always a good idea especially in spring and summer, e.g. citrus peel wrapped around an ice cube, pineapple wedge on a glass rim, berries on a cocktail 

Fresh herbs are a great addition to cocktails, e.g. fresh mint, basil or a rosemary sprig used as a skewer studded with green olives.

Edible flowers are a stunning garnish choice and will look exceptionally on top of most cocktail

Make a sweet or savoury rim using lemon or lime juice and sugar or salt. Think outside the box and use chilli powder or other spices for a wow factor.

Small objects can be a unique cocktail decoration, e.g. little feather, mini peg holding a lemon peel or even origami.
