Odette Cocktail

This was invented for me by a bartender in Malaga, Spain - it is really refreshing on a hot day - but beware it is strong!
1 Tot Whiskey 1 Tot Gin 1 Tot Creme De Menthe Ice -- crushed 1 Large Maraschino Cherry or Glace Cherry 1 Medium Mint Leaf Shake whiskey, gin and creme de menthe in a cocktail shaker. Pour over plenty of crushed ice. Garnish with the cherry into which the mint leaf has been inserted. Serve very cold.

A lovely supper dish when you don't want to cook - the flavours are wonderful and the brandy ensures that your cheese is creamy. this is very tasty and a firm family favourite. very good served as a late night snack - garnish with parsley if you wish! 250 Grams Mushrooms -- sliced 2 Cloves Garlic -- sliced 1 Tablespoon Butter 1/2 Shot Brandy 1/2 Pound Cheese -- grated 8 Slices Whole-Wheat Bread Slices -- toasted (you can use white but it does not bring out the flavours so well) Fry mushrooms and garlic in the butter until slightly cooked. Add brandy. Add cheese and melt stirring well.
