Kick back after cooking for Christmas this week with the Mince Pie Martini!
Ingredients for the mincemeat syrup
100g light soft brown sugar
2 teaspoons mixed spice
Gently bring to the boil in a pan – allow to cool, before straining through a fine sieve or muslin if you have it. Retain the mincemeat.
100ml sweet red vermouth
In a cocktail shaker add the mincemeat, gin, sweet vermouth and 80mls mincemeat syrup and ice. Shake really well and strain into a couple of glasses. To decorate the glass – mix 2 tablespoons caster sugar and 2 teaspoons mixed spice – dampen the rim of the glass then dip into the sugar mixed spice mix. Remember to drink responsibly!
