Nigella's Christmas Martini

Nigella Lawson is the champion of the home cook, creating delicious, easy recipes that we absolutely love!

In her book, At My Table, Nigella shares the recipe for her Christmas Martini, a cocktail that looks as good as it tastes!

Nigella says, "While there is nothing intrinsically Christmassy about this cocktail, I do feel this is the season for sweet drinks. Both the dark raspberry and the emphatic chocolateyness of the cocoa liqueur ably fit that bill, but the generous hit of vodka means that their sugariness is held to account. Rich and warming, that first sip gives you an instant Christmassy fireside glow. I let a sprig of rosemary play the part here of festive fir."
This is a cocktail that will add true festive spirit to your Christmas!
