GIN & APPLETISER A REFRESHING CHRISTMAS COCKTAIL

GIN & APPLETISER A REFRESHING CHRISTMAS COCKTAIL

November 14, 2017

The season of Christmas parties is about to start, and there is the always the question of what to serve your guests.    I like to have something different, but not too alcoholic, heavily spiced or anything that I am going to feel the effects of the day after.

I like to serve my guests something different, which is easy to prepare as well as looking appetising.   In a twist on a the classic everyday G&T I have swapped the tonic for Appletiser, sparkling apple juice, and served with cranberry ice cubes, a stick of cinnamon, twist of lime  and a slice of apple.   It looks great with the jewelled cranberry ice cubes, tastes delicious, the cinnamon has a lovely Christmassy smell, and importantly it can be made as strong or as week, or even as a mocktail to each guest’s taste.   An added bonus is that at a crowded party any spills won’t stain the carpet!

If making this for a large number of people start making the ice cubes a good few days in advance – use the biggest ice cube tray you have for big chunky cubes, and prepare the lime and apple slices (stop them browning with a squeeze of lime) before your guests arrive.  Make sure that everything is well chilled.   I used a branded, but not a premium gin for these.

MEASURING GUIDELINES

BUST: Thread the tape measure under your arms, across your shoulder blades at back and around the fullest part of your bust at the front. Relax your arms at your sides while keeping the tape parallel with the floor. If this measurement falls on the ½ centimeter, round up.

WAIST: Bend to one side to find the natural indentation in your torso. This is your natural waist. Run the tape around your natural waistline, keeping the tape parallel to the floor and one finger between your body and the tape for a more comfortable fit.

HIP: Stand on a level surface with your feet together. Measure around the fullest part of your hips and bottom, keeping the tape parallel to the floor.
