Do you need a break from all of that shopping?
Shake yourself up a Christmas Cake Martini.
Use your favorite Whisky (mine would be Scottish) and add some Cognac, lime juice, a hint of almond and cherry flavor and you’ve got a martini that evokes all of the sweetness of a slice of Christmas Cake.
Don’t skip the cinnamon dusted maraschino cherries. Who knew that the combination would be so delicious? They were my favorite part of the drink.
5ml almond syrup
5ml cherry brandy
5ml lime juice
Maraschino cherries dusted with cinnamon, to garnish
1. Put all ingredients, except for cherry garnish, into a cocktail shaker with some ice. Shake well and strain into a martini glass. Garnish with cherries.

Start your cocktail party with some cool new electronic music from Pojke.
Pojke is a side project of Icelandic musician Sindri Sigfússon, who is well known for his work with Seabear and Sin Fang.
I’m liking this fun sound.
