A Festive Shot of Christmas Pudding

Published on October 5th 2005.


A Festive Shot of Christmas Pudding

As Annabel said yesterday, it’s safe to say that summer is well and truly over, and no sooner have the bikinis and sun cream left the shelves than the shops are becoming stocked with advent calendars and twinkly festive fun. Love it or hate it, the season to be jolly is right around the corner, and we have a tasty yuletide treat for you to try.

The Christmas pudding shot is the ultimate party drink for the festive season, providing a scrumptious after dinner sweet with a kick.

The mastermind behind the drink Manuel (Mani) Martin, Head Chef at Moving Venue Caterers, commented ‘I wanted to create something exciting that was simple to eat, easy to hold and totally delicious. The drink provides guests with a Christmas dessert and after dinner liqueur in one shot’.

Perfect for when you want to get the taste of turkey out of your mouth but can’t face the thought of stodgy Christmas Pudding, the drink is extremely easy to make (and even easier to drink!), and to prove it we had a go ourselves!

If you fancy getting creative in the kitchen, try this simple recipe to make your own Christmas Pudding Shots that your guests and your tastebuds (but suffice to say, not your waistline) will love you for!

Recipe:
Makes 1 litre depending on preferred thickness of shot; served in 10 shot glasses.

Ingredients:
225g Christmas Pudding
600ml Milk
250ml Double Cream
125g Vanilla Ice cream
4cl Brandy

Method:
Crumple Christmas pudding into a jug. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend with a hand blender until smooth and fluffy. Leave to chill in fridge for approximately 4 hours.

To serve:
Blend the mixture again before serving with a little extra milk until you have froth. Pour straight into chilled shot glasses, and finish presentation with addition of decorative thin black straws.
