It's Christmas Eve (in the drunktank) and every year I say I'm going to be organised and not let christmas madness get to me, and pretty much every year I spectacularly fail. However! The holidays are here, there's some breathing time until the next deadline, and it's time to relax, hit the beach, reassess, and then finetune my plans for smashing 2015. Exciting!
So, the perfect accompaniment to friends and family and festivities, comes to us today, this special edition of friday-drinks-on-a-wednesday-because-it's-christmas, thanks to Bombay Sapphire and their resident cocktail mastermind Dickie Cullimore. Herewith, the Christmas Collins, a tart yet fruity and very festive drink. Just perfect for Christmas eve, and let's face it, you deserve it. Strawberries are abundant, there is probably some basil in your garden, and if your booze cabinet doesn't have a bottle of gin on the shelf, then I hope Santa rectifies that for you. Have the happiest of Christmases everyone! Cheers, and thanks for reading x
