Want to try making it for yourself? See the recipe below. If your home bar isn't as well-stocked as Hawksmoor's, we're sure a dash of lemon could take the place of citric acid, and the ants could be left out.


  • 60ml Ketel One Vodka
  • 10ml fig leaf syrup infused with ants
  • 5ml Crème de Cacao Blanc
  • Pinch citric acid


Combine the ingredients, stir over ice, serve in a martini glass and garnish with an ant-tenna (a mini ten pound note).
