Ingredients

  • 100g pecans , finely chopped
  • 160g golden caster sugar
  • ½ tsp sea salt flakes
  • Reyka vodka
  • 3 egg whites
  • 120ml fresh clementine juice (about 2-3 clementines)
  • 18 drops chocolate bitters (we used Fee brothers Aztec chocolate bitters)
  • ice
  • 6 dehydrated orange slices , to serve
  • good grating of nutmeg , to serve

Method

  • STEP 1

    Toast the pecans in a dry saucepan for 1-2 mins, then take off the heat. Quickly add the sugar and 80ml water, stir rapidly to dissolve the sugar, add the salt, then leave the mixture to cool completely. Pour through a sieve to remove the pecans.

  • STEP 2

    Pour the pecan salted caramel syrup, vodka, egg whites, clementine juice and bitters into a cocktail shaker. Shake hard for 30 secs to add volume to the egg white. Add some ice and shake again for a further 15 secs, then strain into rocks or coupe glasses. Garnish each with a dehydrated orange slice and grate fresh nutmeg over, to taste. Serve immediately.

RECIPE TIPS
ORANGE SLICES

To make your own dehydrated orange slices, thinly slice an orange and spread out on a parchment-lined baking tray. Cook in the oven at 110C/90C fan/gas 1/4 for 2 hrs until thoroughly dried.
