Cocktails and Mocktails
Sunday 6th December 2020
This is my favourite quick and easy Christmas morning cocktail. I suppose you can just about consider it to be sort of healthy! I call it Pink Lady.
Put 1 dessertspoon Grand Marnier into base of a large champagne flute. Quarter fill glass with chilled cranberry and raspberry juice, then top up with chilled cava or champagne. Add a few frozen fruits, to serve. Cheers!
Wrap ice cubes in a clean tea towel and bash hard with a rolling pin.
