A Christmas Kiss
On one of my many Christmas gallivants this December, a group of us went to a new bistro in Heathfield, Galin. It does lovely food in a modern European style.
I can’t drink alcohol at all, it gives me a horrible migraine, so I was very pleased to see this drinks menu with not one but four non-alcoholic cocktails to choose from. I chose the Kiss which is a mix of coconut milk, cranberry and pineapple juice and some grenadine. It was really delicious.
When I had the family round on Sunday, I thought I would have a go at reproducing it.
I mixed up roughly equal quantities of the juices and coconut milk, and then put in a big squirt of guava syrup. After tasting it, another big squirt went in, and that was it – a Christmas Kiss in a glass. It is fruity and creamy with a hint of sweetness from the syrup, and a tiny hint of bitterness from the cranberry.
Big effort to use up what’s in the cupboard in the new year. In the meantime, I hope you all have a lovely day tomorrow, I’m off for a cup of Nespresso and a mince pie.
