Originated in Glasgow this is one of my favourite classics which I have added my own modern twist to make my own. The drink began as a way to use up old stock that carried little purpose on the shelf and has now become a very popular cocktail.

Being called Duck it was an obvious choice for me when designing a cocktail menu for Ducks Hotel. The Fuzzy comes from the classic mix of Gin and its cocktail sister Cointreau whuch gives an orange twist, Advocaat an old classic of its day gives it a unique taste and appearance. The colour off musty yellow means this is not the most eye catching of drinks but a wedge of orange soon changes that and emphasises the orange taste already in the drink, a twist of lime juice upon shaking takes the edge of the taste and makes the cocktail more appealing to a larger audience.

Ducks has taken this signature cocktail very well and in fact like it so much it features on their cocktail evening poster for July.

Feel free to make your own Fuzzy Duck:

  • 25ml Gin
  • 25ml Cointreau
  • 25ml Advocaat
  • 15ml Fresh Lime Juice

Shake all ingredients in an iced shaker and pour into glass before garnishing with an orange wedge.

If all this seems to much work then pop along to Ducks Aberlady and allow me to make and discuss the drink although I cant promise you wont leave feeling a little fuzzy….

Followed by perfect venison, red and tender served on salsify purée with wild chanterelle and a light sauce. The potato mash was the creamiest I have had in a while with a hint of nutmeg. We had space for dessert so I went for a creme caramel – excellent. The new chef Paulo has previously worked in a Michelin …Testimonial 1
