Tuesday Treat

Poinsettia Cocktail (Cranberry Champagne Cocktail) – Serves 1

Admittedly the name of this cocktail conjures up Christmas, and yes, I know, Christmas has only just come and gone, but I think that this cocktail is pretty good at any time of the year! And given its beautiful red colour, it is a rather romantic looking cocktail, so I thought that it would be particularly good to share now as Valentine’s Day is on the horizon!

2 tablespoons Cointreau

4 tablespoons 100% cranberry juice (unsweetened)

Champagne or prosecco to top up – about half a glass

A handful of ice

For the garnish: 1 rosemary sprig and a couple of raspberries

  1. Put the Cointreau and cranberry juice in a cocktail shaker with the ice and shake for 15 seconds until cold. Strain into a champagne flute.
  2. Top off the glass with champagne, garnish and serve!…
