75ml or around 3fl oz full-fat milk
3 tbsp Drambuie
2 scoops good-quality vanilla ice-cream, preferably organic

Yes, this one does contain caffeine, but as long as you’re not one of the small number of people who are extremely sensitive to this chemical, it can provide a good energy boost if you’re feeling low after an illness.
