For the next 4 weeks, Friday Cocktail Hour will be brought to you by a rather drunk elf. I can’t imagine the stress of being elf (aka slave to Mattel, Lego and Sony). Every elf needs a bit of R&R. Every elf needs to be as tipsy as f*ck on Christmas eve. Hell, Santa drives the sleigh – no need to go teetotal on the most festive night of the year.
This drink is one of my seasonal faves – pop it in your Christmas Arsenal (or, if you’re anything like me, your Christmas Arse). With a fair slurp of Cranberry juice, you can even convince yourself it’s a health drink.
15 ml ounce Cointreau
90 ml cranberry juice
Put the Cointreau and cranberry juice in a champagne glass. Stir and top with champagne. Merry Hicmas!
