5th December: Christmas party tipples

If you're looking for something different to serve your guests over Christmas, look no further!  

I love playing around with drink combinations (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic) and especially love coming up with recipes that include what are considered by many as more old-fashioned drinks. 

In honour of an annual girlie Christmas get-together last week I devised the 'Mrs Claus'. Here's how to make it... 

Ingredients 

Prosecco

Cherry brandy

Cranberry juice

Berries or rosemary to garnish. 

Method 

Add 1 shot of cherry brandy and 2 shots of cranberry juice to a Champagne flute or saucer. Top-up with chilled Prosecco. Garnish with something festive, like a berry or sprig of rosemary. Enjoy!
