Christmas spirit cocktail
This is so simple to make and just one will definitely raise the Christmas spirits! Just remember, it’s about injecting a little fun and flavour into the party, so don’t get carried away.
Pop a bottle of good-quality tequila in the freezer for an hour, along with a shot glass for each of your guests.
Cut your pomegranates in half and take their seeds out. The easy way to do this is to hold one half of a pomegranate, cut-side down, in your hand and bash the top of it with a spatula so the seeds come tumbling out – make sure you’ve got a bowl underneath to catch them all!
Fill your shot glasses with pomegranate seeds, pour in your iced tequila and depending on your style either sip it, or knock it back. Don't swallow until you've crunched the pomegranate seeds because they add a real burst of fragrance and flavour in your mouth. Delicious!
• 1 or 2 pomegranates
