A masterclass in digression, procrastination and innuendo, this classic literary work is a veritable cock and bull story.

Laurence Sterne’s famous metafictional novel, Tristram Shandy, is a book where little actually happens and it certainly raised a few eyebrows back in Georgian England. And this week we’ve been raising a few glasses of Broken Clock in the author’s honour, on the 307th anniversary of his birth.
IMG_1761_20-11-26_Broken_Clock_Lingering_Vodka_Vegetarian_Bullshot.jpg It is Sterne’s writing and the idyllic garden at Shandy Hall – his 18th century home in North Yorkshire – from which the Broken Clock legend and recipe derive and they’ve also lent some inspiration to today’s Sunday Brunch serve, a curious twist on the bracing Bull Shot.

Broken Clock Vodka’s garden essences are combined with umami mushroom stock and seasoning from a true Yorkshire staple – Henderson’s Relish – which together makes this a flavoursome but deceivingly vegetarian-friendly ‘Cock and Bull Shot’.


50 ml Broken Clock Vodka
90 ml Mushroom Stock
15 ml Lemon Juice
3 dashes Henderson’s Relish
3 dashes Tabasco
Pinch Black Pepper
Pinch Sugar

Red Wine and Sea Salt Rim


Make the mushroom stock and allow it to cool, then refrigerate. Now rim the glass with the red wine and dip into the sea salt.

Combine the cocktail ingredients in a Boston Tin, add plenty of ice and shake until very cold. Add ice to the glass, strain in the cocktail and serve.
