But yum! Really really yum! Just as long as you don't think it's a good idea to drink seven of them, you'll be just fine. There's some question about whether the drink was originally made with cognac or gin, but I had gin, so let's stick with that.
- 50ml gin
- 30ml lemon juice
- Sugar powder (or caster sugar at a push)
- Cherry to garnish
Pop your cherry at the bottom of a champagne flute. Shake together the gin, lemon and sugar with ice. Strain into the glass and top up with bubbly. Drink lots and lots, sing Christmas songs and have a very merry time indeed.
