Forgive the terrible pun in the name, this is our take on that Sex in the City favourite The Cosmopolitan, but inspired not by the combination of citrus vodka and lime which dominate the original but instead by some of the flavours on your Christmas Dinner plate, namely parsnip and cranberry sauce.
The sweetness of our Directors Cut No.4 gin and the cranberry jelly tame the zest and sharpness of fresh lime juice. The whole comes out a vibrant plum colour and is a delicious drink to serve to your guest before Christmas dinner commences.
