Nude Way



  • 45ml Naked Malt

  • 2.5ml cherry eau de vie
  • 20ml whey
  • 20ml sour cherry cordial


Shake and strain into a stemmed glass. Garnish with Tonka spray

Additional information

Whey: Can be sourced from cheesemakers or can be made yourself.
Heat up some full-fat milk on the hob. When the milk begins to boil, take it off the heat and add some lemon juice and let the mix curdle. Once it has curdled, pour the mix through a cheesecloth. For every 100ml of whey, add 5g of citric acid.

Sour cherry cordial: mix sour cherry cordial in equal parts with sugar

Tonka spray: crush up a tonka bean and let it sit in Naked Malt for 24 hours before straining. Add to an atomiser.
