    15ml Lena Banana Liqueur

    30ml cream

  8. Italian Stallion – wouldn’t make this one again (Cocktails – the Mixed Drinks Collection).
  9. Bush Peak – like rocket fuel, ended up adding more orange juice (Shake and Make Cocktails)
  10. Ram – not too bad, but not my favourite that’s for sure, which so far seems to be Inspiration above! (Shake and Make Cocktails)
  11. Altered State (shooter) – equal measures of Kahlua, Peach Liqueur and Baileys Irish Cream … not bad, but the Peach Liqueur slightly curdles with the Baileys on top … probably wouldn’t make this one again! (Shooters – The Mixed Drinks Collection)
