    Stinking Bishop

    • Preparation time: 10 minutes
    • Total time: 10 minutes 10 minutes

    Serves: 10 - 12


    • 2 lemons
    • 200g caster sugar
    • 300ml dark rum
    • 100ml Cognac
    • 500ml boiling water


    1. Finely pare the zest from the lemons, taking care not to get any of the bitter white pith. Cut the zest into fine matchsticks. Juice the lemons.
    2. Put the lemon zest, sugar and rum into a large, flameproof serving bowl. Warm the cognac in a pan over a low heat, set it alight and pour it, burning, into the bowl of rum. Let it burn until it goes out (3-4 minutes). Then add the lemon juice and the boiling water. Stir well and serve in heatproof glasses.
