I am in the mood for something fabulous today, especially in honour of my cyber-sibling's success in the photographic world! So, since I am in the Southern Hemisphere and he is in the North, let's have something I have always wanted to see as well as drink...
3/4 ounce light rum
3/4 ounce triple sec (or Cointreau...special drink, remember!)
Sparkling wine (or Champagne, this is a special occasion after all - (push the boat out!) for topping up
1 piece of orange peel
and 1/2 slice of orange for garnishing.
Shake the rum and triple sec together, with ice, in the shaker and strain into the champagne flute. Top us with the bubbly of your choice and squeeze the orange peel over the drink. Perch the slice of orange on the rim of the glass (if you can be bothered 'cos by now you will just be wanting to get it down yer neck!!)
Then, stand facing France and shout loudly "Cheers, Owen!", altogether now 1...2....3
