Cocktail: “The Scholar’s Gown”

Food and Drink Student Life

This cocktail, a mixture of liquorice and red bull, won’t be to everyone’s taste – just like scholar’s gowns. That’s ok though, because the red bull will still be there to carry you through till morning in your desperate quest for a first. When mixing this drink, the colour you’re aiming for should reflect not only the shade of a gown, but also the hue of your soul after taking finals.

To make:

  • 1 part liquorice liqueur
  • 1 part vodka
  • 1 part Red Bull
  • Add tonic water to taste
  • Garnish with lemon.
