A Signature Welcome Drink...
... always goes down a treat when having girls over for an afternoon of gossip and gluttonous glorious food. And as I am a huge fan of keeping things as simple as possible, this super-easy, super-festive holiday cocktail from Jamie Oliver will be PERFECT! It looks suitably festive, it takes seconds to prepare and it is bound to get our holiday spirits going in no-time!
Christmas spirit cocktail
• 1 or 2 pomegranates
Pop a bottle of good-quality tequila in the freezer for an hour, along with a shot glass for each of your guests.
Cut your pomegranates in half and take their seeds out. The easy way to do this is to hold one half of a pomegranate cut-side down in your hand and bash the top of it with a spatula so the seeds come tumbling out – make sure you’ve got a bowl underneath to catch them all!
Fill your shot glasses with pomegranate seeds, pour in your iced tequila and depending on your style either sip it, or knock it back. Don't swallow until you've crunched the pomegranate seeds because they add a real burst of fragrance and flavour in your mouth. Delicious!
Oh, holiday parties, I LOVE thee! Now; what to wear?!?!?!
