The Silver Streak cocktail has an unusual flavour, pairing Kümmel, a sweet and colourless liqueur that is flavoured with caraway seed, fennel and cumin, with gin. Also known as kümmel or kimmel, the cocktail is a bit like Marmite – you will either love it or hate it.
Place the sugar cube in the bottom of a chilled champagne flute and add the bitters. Pour in the brandy and top up very slowly with champagne. Garnish with a cherry and a wedge of lemon.
