Shine Radio presenter Dave Williams rustles up a warming winter cocktail this week in his front garden.

The Williams family’s favourite cocktail was first tasted around Christmas time a few years back and is wonderfully simple, using just three ingredients.

Here are two of the ingredients: listen to the audio for the third…and as to how it got its name…

The Armadillo

An armadillo – what a great excuse to use a picture of this cute and lovely creature.

Just three ingredients in this cocktail, says Dave.

1 part Disaronno, or other amaretto liqueur

1 part whisky (any will do!)

2 parts orange juice (without bits)

Just pour into a tumber, mix and serve. Dave reckons no ice is necessary.
