When we asked Maxine her preferred drink for a cold winter’s day she needed no time for contemplation- the answer was, without a doubt, a Mad Max! The cocktail is an homage to Maxine’s love for bubbles. It is a wonderful drink to make in big batches and serve to a group (at a Bookalokal dinner perhaps?)
We took the recipe from her blog, whyiamnotskinny. Enjoy!
- 750ml bottle of bubbles (dry & chilled)
- 125ml of Cointreau, Grand Marnier or Triple Sec (or more 😉 )
- 500ml Cranberry juice
Simply mix the ingredients in a large jug, keep chilled and serve as quickly as possible.
(although having said that – it doesn’t normally last long – so i normally have 2 jugs going at the same time… one is being used to pour while i make up a fresh batch)
I also add a slice or two of lemon and some mint… and sometimes a few blocks of ice.
Tastes like… um… MORE!
