This is where you’ll find Outlier’s preferred methods of consumption. You’ll find both recommended cocktails and food recipes because why limit yourself to just drinking rum or schnapps when you can put it in a cake or glazed wings?
50ml Hedge Fund
25ml Lemon Juice
3/4 tablespoon Simple Syrup (this can be made by mixing equal parts sugar and water and boiling it so the sugar dissolves)
1 Tablespoon Creme De Mure/ Cassis
Lemon Slice (or Gorse Flower)
Shake the Hedge Fund, lemon juice and syrup in a shaker with a decent handful of ice cubes.
Fill a rocks glass (short tumbler) with crushed ice and pour the contents of the shaker in.
Gently drizzle the creme de mure (or creme de cassis) over the top of the drink so it bleeds into the cocktail.
Finally, garnish the cocktail with a lemon twist - or if you want to go full Manx, scatter a few Gorse flowers on top.
Flaming Christmas Pudding
The perfect Xmas flambé
One bottle of Pudtroleum
One Christmas Pudding
Take your bottle of 50ml Pudtroleum and pour it into a metal ladle. Hold the ladle over a couple of tealights to gently heat the Pudtroleum. It won’t take long for the rum to warm, you’re just making it a little easier to light.
Tilt the ladle – just a little - over the tealights so that the rum catches light. It should go without saying, but be careful when doing this and make sure you’re doing it next to your Xmas pudding. You don’t want to be running to a different room with a flaming ladle. We recommend using the whole bottle for a large pud and just half for a smaller one. Either way, make sure that you give the Pudtroleum plenty of headspace – clear those Christmas decorations!
And finally, pour the flaming Pudtroleum over your Christmas pud. Marvel at the spectacle and receive all due applause and family adoration. Falling asleep in front of telly optional.
