AH, sorry for those allergic to Cointreau but this drink is really a reflection on how chilly it has been the past few mornings! The great thing about a killer frost is the wonderful sunny day we get as a result, so I'm not altogther complaining.
So, for an ICEBERG you will need:
30ml gin (mother's ruin! actually, thats a great song by Kirsty Macoll)
5 drops of blue curacao
1 cup of ice
Pour the cointreau (I always do a quick pre-test of cointreau to make sure it hasn't gone off), gin and juice from the lime into a blender with the ice and blend, blend, blend.
Pour into a chilled glass (even tho' I love the look of this cocktail glass pictured they are hard to hold, especially after the third cocktail...apparently), top with sparkling wine and drizzle the blue curacao on top.
Crank the stereo up, and sing along...cos perhaps this is what happens if you have one too many!
