But I haven't ventured over to the Punchbowl (boom-tish) since then.
Martini sent me over their new summer cocktail bottles 'The Ultimate Summer Drink' and I thought: 'Yes, I'm doing punch this year, definitely!' I've decided in the aftermath of Christmas I'll be doing it as we are having a low-key Christmas - I'll invite my local ladies and gentlemen, we'll let the kids go wild on all the new Christmas outdoor things (new swings, slip and slide and wading pool) and we'll get stuck in.
So I started to experiment this week - you know, because I don't want to give my guests something heinous and of course I want to share with you ! (I really needed those drinks too after the month I've had too - ahem!)
So here we go:
Martini Rosato: It's a crisp, dry rosato and at 15% alcohol content - it packs a punch! Whoah Mamma.
Hubby likes it just over ice, and they recommend you pair it with the Martini Prosecco (even more dry) over ice with raspberries... it was a bit too dry for me...
So I got cracking - I've tried a few different combinations and I have to say my favourite so far is the Rosato with apple, pomegranate and cranberry juice and mint - delicious! (and looks very festive too) I mix 1 part Martini Rosato to six parts juice... and sprinkle some mint in... or what I like to do is freeze mint in the icecube! Cute right?
Do you punch? What's your Christmas tipple?
