Longstocking Cocktail

It’s an Eggs On The Roof tra­di­tion that at this time of year I toast you with a cock­tail. Last year I saluted you with a pomegranate cre­ation I called Tomor­row Shall Be My Dan­cing Day. This year I’d like to say thank you with a quince vodka and clem­entine juice affair.

I’m full of grat­it­ude for your loy­alty, your solid­ar­ity and your shared sense of fun. In fact, I’m just so glad to have enjoyed your com­pany this year that I was going to call my cock­tail Pol­ly­anna, after the glor­i­ously cheer­ful char­ac­ter from children’s fic­tion. But since my cock­tail has a zesty little kick to it, I’ve decided to call it Long­stock­ing, after the fear­less, feisty and life-enhancing Pippi.

LONGSTOCKING COCKTAIL

  • 1 part vodka — I used the quince vodka I made this year, inspired by The Quince Tree. But stand­ard vodka will do
  • 1 part freshly squeezed clem­entine juice
  • 3 parts Prosecco

Here’s to you all.
