If you're celebrating Valentine's Day at home why not impress the object of your affections with a show-stopping cocktail. 

Grace O'Malley whiskey, which was inspired by Ireland's pirate queen, has given us two of its signature cocktail recipes for you to try at home.  One is bound to be a hit with chocolate lovers while the other is a warm spicy concoction.

Figurehead

By Peggy Kah

Named after the carved wooden decoration found at the bow of a ship, this cocktail teams sweet and spiced flavours with the smoothness of the whiskey.

Ingredients

40 ml Grace O'Malley Blended Irish whiskey
20 ml Caribbean pineapple liqueur (such as Giffard Pineapple Liqueur)
2 dashes of Angostura Aromatic Bitters
Top up with ginger ale
Orange peel to garnish

Method

Pour all ingredients except the ginger ale into a long drink glass and mix well with a stirrer. Fill with ice cubes, pour on ginger ale and garnish with a spiral of orange peel.  It should look like a figurehead in the glass.
