Festive Cheer

Nicky and I are off to a Christmas Party this afternoon.

I think one of these is in order - yes, just the one ;-):

Cosmopolitan Champagne
* 250ml (1 cup) cranberry juice
* 2 tbs Cointreau liqueur
* 2 tbs fresh lime juice
* 6 sugar cubes
* 1 x 750ml btl chilled pink Champagne or sparkling wine

Place cranberry juice in a medium saucepan and bring to the boil over high heat. Cook, uncovered, for 10 minutes or until reduced by two-thirds. Remove from heat and set aside for 30 minutes to cool.

Combine the cranberry juice, Cointreau and lime juice in a small jug. Place a sugar cube in each serving glass. Pour the cranberry mixture over the sugar. Top with Champagne or sparkling wine and serve immediately.
