We all remember the cocktails of our youth, the first cocktails we ever tried, the cocktail that reminds us of our dad, the cocktail that we shared on that amazing night out. So as a part of The Memories issue, we’re travelling back in time to a memory-making cocktail of our very own Ms Stripey.

The Fluffy Duck is not a cocktail you’ll find on every standard bar list, but take it from us, this one is decadently delicious. It uses Advocaat, which is a creamy vanilla, brandy and egg-based liqueur that is every bit as delicious as it sounds. There are two versions of this cocktail – one centres around gin and one around white rum. Today, we’re playing with the white rum version – this one adds a dash of citrus and lemonade (hence the “fluffy”) to make a cocktail that is creamy, citrusy and a total delight.
