One of the best things about this time of year is the ability to drink what you want, when you want, completely guilt-free. And what The Greedy Girl wants to drink is cocktails. Specifically Christmas Cake Martinis.
100 ml bourbon
10ml sugar syrup
10 ml cherry brandy
10 ml cognac
10 ml lime juice
2 x cherries
A dusting of ground cinnamon and sugar
Wet the rim of the glass and coat with a dusting of cinnamon and sugar. Shake all the remaining ingredients apart from the cherries in a cocktail shaker with some ice. Strain the into a Martini glass, add the cherries.
A product of 1974 Mancunia, Mark travelled around Europe and America before returning – hungry and thirsty.
A frequenter of Glasgow’s many restaurants, bars and taverns, Mark can also often be found at home dabbling with homemade cocktails.
There are rumours that these drinks may have caused random bouts of narcolepsy and memory loss, but to date, there have been no recorded fatalities.
