Original recipe of the week: Cranberry and Cinnamon Fizz
Everyone knows that at Christmas, for the most part, we enjoy a good drink. For the men it all about mulled cider and good strong ales; however when it comes down to the female choice, this normally centres, when mulled wine isn’t concerned, on champagne. Why not give your Christmas champagne some added zing this year with our delicious recipe?
The combination of cranberry and cinnamon adds just the right amount of fiery sweetness to give a delicious festive feel to your holiday tipple.
