This sweet cocktail combines two great things in life: ice cream and Champagne. This recipe dates back to around 1888 and was a favourite of Queen Victoria’s, who enjoyed a glass whenever she hosted banquet at the Midland Grand Hotel. Especially great for the summer.

1. Pour the Cognac, orange curaçao and cherry liqueur into a mixing glass with a handful of ice. Stir well.
2. Scoop the vanilla ice cream in a large glass and add the cocktail mix.
3. Top up with Champagne and serve while foaming.
