With two shots of whisky, the Scottish theme is still going strong after last week's Flying Scotsman but half a shot of almond liqueur gives the drink a flavour reminiscent of a Cherry Bakewell.

Serve up in a martini glass and you'll be left with a drink that's strong and cheeky - rather like Rod himself.
