Festive Cocktails - Frosty the Snowman's DOOM!

It's Christmas, time to indulge so let's use the excuse to make a large amount of drinks!

This cocktail is sharp, fresh and don't drink it too quick or you'll get brain freeze!
I love to make this drink at parties as it's a crowd-pleaser and quite easy to make.
Be warned, they are VERY morish and go down way too easy.
Don't end up like our magical friend here!

What you'll need: (per drink)
2 large Tablespoons of Lemon Sorbet
1-2 ounces of Vodka
1/2 ounces of Fresh Lemon Juice
1 ounce of Cava

Mix all the ingredients together, you can either blend or stir.
Serve in a martini glass.
For those of us with a darker side add a small top hat. (Don't show to children)

Look the Part

They say less is more,

as long as your less is HUGE, I agree.

When it comes to cocktail jewellery big dramatic pieces are the way to go. Remember the ring you bought and your friends said, 'where are you going to wear that?' - cocktails are that occasion.
Jewellery doesn't have to be practical, in fact at cocktail hour it shouldn't be. Your going to have a glass in your hand for a while so might as well show off that cocktail ring while you're there!

Here's a selection that I've got my eye on at the moment.
