Pancake Day Cocktail - The Pancake Punch

Tomorrow is Shrove Tuesday (Pancake Day), and folks across the country will be flipping and tossing pancakes throughout the day. Whether you like you crepes with jam, syrup, stilton, chocolate spread or just the classic lemon and sugar here’s a drink you may enjoy:

The Pancake Punch

The Recipe
15ml of Pancake Powder Mix
25ml Dark Rum
10ml Sugar Syrup
60ml Milk
Combine ingredients, with ice, in a cocktail shaker. Shake very vigorously, ensuring all the powder has dissolved. Take a Champagne saucer or cocktail glass; sugar coat the rim and add a slice of lemon or lime. Strain and pour the cocktail into the glass.

The Taste
The Pancake Punch (technically I’m not sure it actually IS a punch) tastes like a mix of Egg Nog and cake batter, but it is rather tasty. The sugar rim and the citrus fruit signify the lemon and sugar many people sprinkle on their pancakes but the citrus slice can also be use to sharpen the drink up a little if you find it too sweet. If you used to like licking out the cake-mix bowl when you were a child, you may well enjoy The Pancake Punch.
