Drinks are better with friends…

Sometimes when friends visit, and you have a lot to catch up on, you don’t want to spend all night in the kitchen making drinks. Sometimes you just want to make one giant drink that you can all enjoy together.

This is the time when you need a very special glass! At over half a metre tall, my large champagne saucer makes a great punch bowl.

Rum Swizzle (serves 4)

  • 80ml Ron de Jeremy Spiced Rum
  • 80ml Havana Club Especial
  • 40ml Grenadine
  • 200ml Orange Juice
  • 200ml Pineapple Juice
  • 6 dashes Angostura Bitters

Rum Swizzle

Mix all ingredients with ice in a plastic pitcher or measuring jug, and then pour carefully into the champagne saucer. Decorate with fruit, umbrellas, straws, and any other bits of kitsch you can find!

The glass is big enough for four people to share, and works especially well for drinking games.

Just be aware that drinking your share of this rummy number may lead to the following:

Thanks to special guests Sarah and Polly for being my guinea pigs! (And for bringing fancy gin and bitters).

Please remember to enjoy responsibly, and that the drinking game ‘Roxanne’ is not for the faint-hearted x
