When inviting friends & family around for winter parties, we always want to ensure they all receive a tasty, consistent tipple in a timely manner, right? This cocktail is simply perfect for ‘pre-batching’ for those larger groups. Just multiply up the non-fizzy ingredients the day before your party in a large sealable container and whisk them together to mix and ‘ginfuse’ fully, then keep refrigerated overnight. When you go to serve, simply whisk again, shake what you require with ice, strain into the serving glasses and top with the MARTINI Prosecco then garnish.
