15 Cocktails inspired by literary greats

Isabelle Allende

Born in Peru in 1942, Allende grew up in Chile and is now based in the US. She writes in Spanish but her novels have been translated the world over. Allende specialises in historical fiction with elements of magical realism woven in. She received Chile’s National Literature Prize in 2010.

Some of Allende’s best-known works are The House of Spirits, City of Beasts and Island Beneath the Sea. Her novels contain many threads that braid together to tell one compelling story. Many of her works feature strong female characters.

The Isabelle Allende cocktail

Whisk together 1 ounce of Port, 1 ounce of whisky, 1 egg yolk, 1 teaspoon of sugar and a dash of Angostura bitters until completely blended. Pour into a glass over a generous amount of ice. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar and cocoa powder.

Allende’s cocktail is a version of a Chilean classic. Port, whisky, egg yolk, and spice combine into a heady, rich drink.
