?Ciroc Pink Diamond

Alcohol Content: 15g

Units: 1.9

Ingredients

  • 35ml C?roc vodka
  • 45ml cranberry juice
  • 35ml champagne
  • 10ml fresh lime juice (around half a lime)
  • 1 lemon for the twist?

Method

  1. Add C?roc vodka, cranberry juice, lime juice and ice to a shaker and shake for 8-10 seconds.
  2. Strain through a fine mesh strainer or sieve into a chilled champagne flute.
  3. Top with the champagne.
  4. Garnish with an orange twist. To do this, use a vegetable peeler or sharp knife to remove a 1cm-wide strip of peel from the orange (try to get as little pith as possible), twist in opposite directions over the glass to release the oils.
