The perfect holiday drink!

This lovely little cocktail has a great festive taste and won't stain your sofa when your guests inevitably spill it after one too many!

The only thing "martini" about this drink is the glass. You can make it a nice and sweet girly drink or throw in some vodka for extra kick.
