Over time I have developed intolerance to wine. I would get migraine after a glass or two. I think it started that fateful day when I had four glasses of wine then followed by two shots of tequila. I threw up all night then had a hangover the next day. That was my first bad experience with alcohol. I was 45.
Since then, when it comes to wine, I proceed with caution. I mainly use it for cooking. Liquor, on the other hand, doesn’t mess with my head. I love gin and vodka. And rum too!
This is my first attempt to mix and shoot cocktails and I’m very happy with the result. This festive drink is Delaney Mes‘ invention. Delaney is a popular personality in Wellington and Auckland. She writes for magazines and cooks on television. She has a regular recipe column on FishHead magazine.
If you want the recipe, get your copy of the December issue of FishHead. It also has recipes for festive salad and desserts. If you live outside New Zealand and is interested to get a copy, email me your postal address and I will send one to you, just because!
