The White Cocktail is made with anisette (anis), an anise-flavoured colourless liqueur that is popular in Mediterranean countries.
We tend to be creatures of habit and stick to the same cocktails, partly because we already have the necessary ingredients in our cupboards. The key ingredient in an Army and Navy is Orgeat syrup, a delicious combination of almonds, orange flower water, rosewater and sugar. It’s a fairly unknown ingredient but is definitely worth purchasing and will make a welcome addition to any drinks cabinet.
An Orange Fizz is a Gin Fizz, but with orange juice rather than lemon.
