Girl Power 8 (Lady Shiva, Silver Sable)

Today I’m going to be short and blunt, straight to the point: bit busy with other things… but that doesn’t mean I won’t be able to deliver couple of nice cocktails for you to enjoy.




5 parts Lillet

1,5 parts Strega (see below)

1 part Aperol

Stir with ice and strain into a highball glass with some crushed ice in it. Looks suitably menaging with a black straw.

This is A Highball That Kicks Ass. If you enjoy the taste but don’t like the idea of consuming it as a highball, by all means use smaller glass… in that case please consider this: use 2 parts Strega instead of 1,5. That version is even more “violent”, I give you that, but somehow I enjoy even more kick when enjoying the smaller glass.

Okay, Lady Shiva is lethal assassin, an her namesake drink is also pretty fatal… next drink/character is also not to be trifled with, but she’s more subtle…




3 parts Advocaat

2 parts cognac

1 part Cointeau or Grand Marnier

vanilla extract, for taste

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. Grate some chocolate on top.

I decided to forget about “silver” from the colour theme, the drink would have just ended to be either white or colourless…but I wanted to keep the colour “smooth and classy”; Advocaat seemed to be a right choice.

And it works tastewise also; spiced up with cognac and suitable liqueur (Triple Sec is way too sharp for this one, I think) it creates a pretty satisfactory combination. Round it up with some vanilla, and you have a cocktail of many nuances… as Silver Sablinova is a woman of many aspects.

And chocolate on top is… well, “cherry on top”.


Okay, that’s it for today. Until next time! 😀
