Smoke's Glenmorangie Caketails

We've all been there. You've just finished off a delicious meal at a restaurant or bar and the waiter asks if you can be tempted by dessert or a digestif. But why not have both? We're big believers in treating ourselves guilt-free, which is why Glenmorangie's latest collaboration with Smoke caught our attention.

The scotch label has partnered with Barangaroo House rooftop bar to celebrate the launch of its new cake-inspired whisky, A Tale of Cake. Designed by Glenmorangie's Director of Whisky Creation Dr Bill Lumsden, A Tale of Cake is aged in dessert wine casks, which gives it a distinct, candy-like flavour. To prove how well this new tipple would pair with a dessert, Glenmorangie had world-famous pastry chef Dominique Ansel (creator of the legendary cronut) design a special dessert to be enjoyed with A Tale of Cake cocktails, dubbed a Caketail. Now, to launch the spirit Down Under, Glenmorangie has done the same here, by teaming up with Smoke Bar to create its very own Caketail.

The cocktail, designed by Smoke's bartender Pauric Kennedy, pairs the whisky with sweet vermouth, chocolate bitters and orgeat syrup for a rich cocktail with notes of marzipan and spice. The dessert, created by Chef Tom Haynes, explores those flavours, too. It consists of a hard chocolate shell filled with a chocolate almond mousse that's been spiked with coffee and marzipan liquor, and it's served with hazelnut ice cream (infused with Tale of Cake) and a nut crumble. The end result is an extremely decadent cocktail and cake pairing that's perfect for the festive season.

Smoke's Caketail cocktail and dessert pairing is available from Monday, November 23 to Monday, December 21. To make a booking, head this way
