The Weekend Edit: A Christmas vodka cocktail

by ,

We do love a festive cocktail around at Chez Becca. I’m a particular fan of vodka cocktails as they are light, refreshing and cut through all that rich Christmas food. If you’re over mulled wine, this delicious vodka and elderflower mix is the perfect after-dinner drink.

The recipe is actually a Jamie Oliver special from his TV Christmas extravaganza. I can’t emphasise how good this is! In fact, the day after the show aired, my local off-licence had sold out of elderflower liqueur such is the influence of Mr Oliver. Give it a try – you’ll love it!

Jamie Oliver’s Vodka Le Fizz
1 ½ parts vodka
1 part elderflower liqueur
1/4 of a lime
2 parts soda water
Cubed ice

Pour all the ingredients apart from soda water in a mixing glass and top with cubed ice. Shake hard for about 20 seconds to chill the liquid really well then strain into a chilled martini glass. Top with chilled soda water. Enjoy and Merry Christmas!
