A Cocktail of Two Cities

The twelve cocktails of Christmas
#11: A Cocktail of Two Cities

This Christmas, our great friends Margo and Aaron travelled from Canada to spend holidays with us. They are both cocktail lovers, and their visit was a big part of my idea to do the twelve cocktails of Christmas.

One of our gifts to Margo was a copy of Tequila Mockingbird: Cocktails With a Literary Twist. She thanked us by mixing up a round of A Cocktail of Two Cities.

Dickens and Christmas go together like… gin and champagne it turns out. As the book says, “the result is revolutionary.”

  • 1 sugar cube
  • 50ml gin
  • 25ml lemon juice
  • champagne
  1. Place a sugar cube at the bottom of a champagne flute.
  2. Pour the gin and lemon juice into a cocktail shaker filled with ice, and shake well.
  3. Strain into the champagne flute, and fill the remainder of the glass with champagne.

        Andrea – your ideas are so brilliant as always!! A cocktail of two cities sounds wonderful and the hot buttered rum perfect for a cold Dec/Jan eve. We will be going up to Epsom downs to watch the fireworks from this side of London and will blow a kiss to you and the family!! Miss yooooou! Happy new year to you all!
