Want to serve your guests something festive? Try my world famous Winter Wonder.

The dark rum warms the cockles while the spicy aftertaste of ginger beer will give you a kick and liven up the party. It certainly does when Babs Sax is around anyway; I’ve had to limit her to no more than four Winter Wonders a night. I’m still recovering from the time she made a grab across the bar at my tackle, feeding me some cock and bull afterwards about how she was only after a packet of pork scratchings. She’s lucky I didn’t chuck her out!

Dark rum
Good quality ginger beer
Lime juice

Get a tall glass and whack a couple of ice cubes in. Get your dark rum and add a healthy glug (I always aim for a double measure). Next pour over the ginger bubbles to make a long drink that’s not short on surprises. Squeeze half a fresh lime in and give the whole lot a good stir. Garnish with a fresh lime wedge. Voila!
