Christmas Boon Cocktail

We love messing about inventing new cocktails and calling them silly names. Little things and all that ha ha! I made this one last Christmas and it’s no exception. The name stuck and it’s become a Christmas favourite. We love a few of these while we’re playing board games and having a few goodies. They’ll definitely be making an appearance New Years Eve.


1 measure raspberry vodka

Half a measure Cointreau

Shot of prosecco

Top up the glass with 1/2 apple juice and 1/2 orange juice.

Slice of orange to garnish


Firstly sugar the rim of a cocktail glass with lemon and sugar. I do this by running a wedge of lemon around the rim of the glass, then placing it face down on a plate of sugar and twisting.

Now add 1 measure of raspberry vodka, half a measure of Cointreau and a shot of prosecco.

Top up the rest of the glass with a mixture of half apple juice and half orange juice.

Mix to stir.

Boon: Helpful, beneficial or friendly….. This drink is all three. Cheers!
