Every year it’s the same; the calendar turns to the first of January and I’m already thinking of Spring sunshine and lighter days ahead...

Maybe it’s all the rich indulgences of the recent holidays, but nonetheless, my cocktails are ready for something a touch on the sunny side too. For even if snow is still on the ground, I know warm days can’t be far behind - just sitting by a sun-streaked window will have to do for now!
