Setting the scene:
The log fire alight and dried apple leaves tossed on to give a heady aroma.
Roqué had brought in a huge ‘Yule’ log to sit Wanda on while they sipped Mistletoe Martinis and sampled the delights of a sprig of fresh mistletoe by the twinkling lights of the Christmas tree.
Wanda eyed up the log and immediately knew just what Roqué had in his mind – on it or over it she thought.
So Wanda produced her special Christmas Stockings filled with Roqué’s favourite…her legs.
For 2 lovers
Get on with it…
You will need a cocktail shaker, some crushed ice and coloured sugars to make your lover succumb at the first bubbly sip.
This is a sparkling, ‘tart’ cocktail which, sipped under the mistletoe, will captivate your lover’s heart.
Into the shaker pour 50ml citrus vodka, 100ml pomegranate juice, 100ml lemon cordial and shake baby shake.
Prepare 2 large Martini glasses by dipping the rims into shallow water, about as deep as a £1 coin. Shake off the residue and now dip them into a mix of red, green and white sugar WOW.
Half fill the glasses with crushed ice and pour over the mixture topped up with chilled Cava Brut. Sprinkle fresh pomegranate seeds into the glass and add a flourish of orange skin.
And as they say “lets get out of these wet clothes and slip into a dry Martini!”

Mistletoe Martini, the seeds of pomegranate, this luscious red fruit, improve blood flow and are said to increase genital sensitivity. Can’t knock that!
Some say that the forbidden fruit referred to in the bible wasn’t an apple at all but a pomegranate.
Pomegranate has long been considered a sensual symbol and with its antioxidant properties it increases vitality and is a very sexy food to share with someone you love.
Scatter like jewels over salads, meats and each other and nibble them off.
