Cock shot

Serves 6-8

This is based on a bullshot which is a popular tipple taken to shoots and great for fishing on a chilly autumn day.

4 shots of vodka, or more if you wish
500-600ml chicken stock (see below)
4-5 drops of Tabasco sauce to taste
2tbsp Worcestershire sauce
The juice of 1 lime
1tsp celery salt
A few turns of black pepper

For the stock

Two raw or cooked chicken carcasses
1 onion, peeled and roughly chopped
3 sticks of celery, roughly chopped
10 black peppercorns
A few sprigs of thyme
Enough chicken stock to cover

Put all of the ingredients for the stock in a saucepan, bring to the boil; simmer for an hour. Strain through a sieve, season; leave to cool.

If you want to drink this cold as a cocktail, then mix the ingredients and pour them into ice-filled glasses with perhaps a bit more vodka.

For a warming drink on a hunting or fishing trip, just warm the stock up and stir in the rest of the ingredients and add the condiments and spices to taste, pour into a vacuum flask and off you go.
