Any childhood bookworm or fantasy film lover will immediately recognise from the name that this wacky cocktail gets its inspired name from Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland, particularly the part where she has a rather unique mad tea party with the Mad Hatter and March Hare. Just so, this unique cocktail is no ordinary drink, and its distinctive recipe also does not match that of any other cocktail.
The Mad Hatter comes with an easy and memorable recipe, and chances are that you will probably have most of the ingredients on hand already. The drink is also easy to make and straightforward, so it is a good one to remember for occasions when guests request you to make them a drink. The next time that happens, whip up this unusual tasting yet yummy cocktail, and you will win points for introducing them to a new drink, and a delicious and strong one at that!
This cocktail, unfortunately, is nowhere near as famous as it should be. This interesting drink packs a punch in terms of flavour as well as potency, and when you’re making it yourself, the madness is truly reconstructed before your eyes. It is a loaded drink so one is more than plenty for most to get their buzz going, however the taste might have you reaching for another one. If you fancy feeling like you’re partying with the March Hare and Mad Hatter in a trippy dream, this drink is the way to go.
