Pre-mixed and bottled cocktails are really trendy at the moment (and easy to drink!). Look for vintage bottles and add a pretty ribbon and label to complete the look.

Ingredients

  • blanco tequila 225ml
  • blood orange Cointreau 100ml, (see notes below)
  • whisky 75ml, (a peaty one such as Laphroaig is good)
  • Bottlegreen pomegranate and elderflower cordial 100ml
  • cinnamon stick 1
  • whole cloves 2-3
  • orange peel 1 ribbon

Method

  • Step 1

    Pour all the liquids into the bottle, put on the lid and shake gently to mix. Add the cinnamon stick, cloves and orange peel to the bottle, then seal and leave to infuse for up to 1 week. Serve over ice.

Blood orange Cointreau is available from waitrose.com and amazon.co.uk.
