- 100 ml vodka
- 50ml peach schnapps
- 25ml triple sec (Cointreau or Grand Marnier will also work well)
- 25ml lemon juice (from a bottle is fine)
- Sparkly water
- 2 cocktail cherries (optional)
Put the cherries into a small but classy glass – I’ve used a martini glass. Put loads of ice into a cocktail shaker. If you don’t have one, a glass jar (with a lid) will do. Add the vodka, schnapps, triple sec and lemon juice and shake enthusiastically until nice and cold. Pour through a strainer onto the cherries and top up to taste with sparkling water. Sip slowly whilst gazing at the freezing weather from a warm, cosy room.
