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!
Posting today to try to offer some comfort to all my lovely followers, especially those in tier 4 like we are. This is more of a suggestion than a recipe. If you love chocolate, orange and alcohol and let’s face it who doesn’t, then this is a winner.
Simply make your hot chocolate, add a measure of Cointreau, stir, add lots of frothy squirty cream and sprinkle over a little grated chocolate.
Sit by the fire basking in the light of the Christmas tree watching the Grinch. Do your best to have yourself a merry little Christmas and let’s look forward to better times ahead with our loved ones.

I thought my Tequila drinking days were over. The memories still fresh from one too many Tequila slammers in Mexico, when it all seemed such a good idea until the next day! Then I discovered the classic Tequila Sunrise. An impressive little cocktail reminiscent of the flavour of fizz bomb sweets with a twist and super easy to make.
1 measure of Tequila
Fresh orange juice to top up
Pour your measure of Tequila into your glass. Top up the glass 3/4 of the way with fresh orange juice. Now slowly pour in your grenadine.
Is it just me or does anyone else like to have just one Bloody Mary on the plane? For me, after a glass of champagne at the airport, whatever time my flight is that is the start to my holiday. Drinking hours don’t count at the airport anyway! Counting down until that time comes again!
Tomato juice – to top up to 3/4 of the glass
Measure of vodka ( or 2!!)
Squeeze of lime juice
Dash of Worcester Sauce
Shake of salt and cracked black pepper
Stalk of celery
Literally put it all in the glass, stir it up and pop in your celery stalk. Don’t make it too tall or it will taste too weak.
