So, April 2020 in the U.K. and we're all still in lockdown. A good friend works for a bank and is tirelessly working to support businesses with business interruption loans (known as CBILS). He asked me if I could invent a cocktail for him to unwind. His favourite drink is the Old Fashioned and he is a huge coffee fan so I put this together. Each of the ingredients represents a letter of the drinks name, CBILS (Coffee Liqueur, Bourbon, Irish Whiskey, Lemon Juice and Sugar Syrup). It took a few attempts to get the balance right but think I've got there!!'
