Holiday Spirit: Christmas Drink


If you're still looking for ideas for Christmas dinner, here's a great Christmas cocktail! It's made of rasberry purée (original recipe says cranberries but I didn't have them at home so I replaced them with raspberries), clementine juice and vodka. It's delicious and so festive! I think it would make a great drink for New year's eve too.

Recipe (from the book on the third photo):

1 ½ parts raspberry puree (originally cranberry puree)
1 ½ parts vodka
1 part clementine juice
3/4 Cointreau (didn't have it, didn't use it)

For the purée: put 300g raspberries, 200ml water and 100g sugar (I didn't measure anything, I took a little bit of everything so it made a thick and smooth mixture). Put the ingredients in a saucepan on a medium heat. Bring to boil, then turn down and simmer for 2 minutes. Turn off the heat, allow the mixture to cool slightly and then blitz to purée using a hand blender or a food processor. Strain the purée through a fine-mesh sieve into a jug to remove the seeds.

When you've prepared the purée, put all the ingredients in a cocktail shaker with lots of ice, shake until mixed, serve very cold.
