Spending Twixtmas in Snowdonia. All the snow has gone, and there is a light penetrating drizzle, so we are mooching with friends and knocking back the cranberry fizz - cointreau, prosecco and cranberry juice. Too easy to drink. Like a very sophisticated alcopop. Alison, who makes this as her signature cocktail every New Year, reminds me not to forget the orange zest and the cranberries. So I won't.
