How to use up leftover whisky

  • Whisky-marinated steak
    Combine 50ml whisky, 50ml clear honey, 50ml soy sauce, a finely grated thumb size piece of ginger and a crushed garlic clove. Put this marinade into a deep dish with 2 steaks, turning them to coat. Cover and chill overnight in the fridge. Bring to room temperature, shake off the excess marinade, then grill to your liking.
  • Whisky-soaked Christmas cake
    Instead of ‘feeding’ your cake (spooning alcohol over it several weeks before you eat it) with brandy, try whisky instead. It goes well with the rich fruit.
  • Whisky caramel sauce
    When making caramel sauce, add a splash of whisky when you add the butter or cream. Drizzle over cakes or ice cream.
