I do love a cocktail at Christmas whether its at a party or after the children have gone to bed and I have 5 minutes peace and quite.
Here are some of my favourites:
Peaches. You can either use fresh peaches or peach juice for this. Blitz up your peaches to make a purée.
Sparking Wine (there is no need to use expensive fizz for this).
The ratio for this drink is 1/3 peach to 2/3 fizz.
Put the peach in the bottom of the glass. I like to use champagne flutes and top with the sparkling wine.
This is a great one for Christmas morning and with Christmas dinner.
This looks and tastes great.
Tequila. Gold if you can get it as it has a smoother taste
This is served in a long glass.
Out the ice in the bottom of the glass and then pour over 1 shot (25ml) of tequila and stir.
Pour in the orange juice leaving a 2cm gap at the top of the glass.
Tilt the glass and slowly pour a tablespoon on grenadine down the side of the glass. The grenadine will sink to the bottom and then float up leaving a sunrise effect.
Served over ice in a high glass this is a really refreshing cocktail.
Pour a 50 ml shot of vodka over the ice.
Then fill the glass 2/3 with the cranberry juice and 1/2 with grapefruit juice and give a little stir
For something a bit creamier try a Black Russian served over ice in a short glass.
Over ice pour 50ml vodka, 25 ml Tia Maria and top with 30 ml of single cream and stir slowly.
Drink this one slowly as its quite potent!
