From Nigel Slater's 12 Tastes of Christmas
Cocktails don't need to be sickly sweet or wildly strong. This cranberry, apple and ginger combination is exceptionally Christmassy.


  1. Blend all ingredients except for the cider in a blender.

  2. Pour in the cider and blend again.

  3. Serve in a jug with a few extra frozen cranberries for decoration.


  • 200g/7oz ice
  • 400g/14oz frozen cranberries, plus extra for decoration
  • 2-4 knobs of preserved stem ginger (depending on how gingery you like it)
  • 3 tbsp syrup from the stem ginger jar
  • 500ml/18fl oz cider
