I should add that it's called 'Old Card Table' as when you've had 3, your legs give way and collapse … invented onboard the Leander class Royal Navy frigate called HMS Achilles

Quite delicious - although I'd reduce the amount of Cointreau. I've made a similar cocktail for decades (called 'Old Card Table') which uses fresh orange juice (without bits) instead - 30ml vodka, 20ml Cointreau, 75 ml each orange juice and sparkling wine (and scale up as required) - but a Martini it is not. A 'Fizz', perhaps. Martinis require Vermouth (dry white) and, unsurprisingly, it's named after one of the premier Italian makers of the same! Otherwise, it's rather like the 'vegan chicken burger' … it can be vegan or contain chicken but not both ...

Fun and easy to do as well as tasty and refreshing. Lovely way to use up clementines if you have succumbed to how pretty they look and bought a boxful. Beware though - quite strong on the alcohol content!

These are great. You can make the mixture up in advance and chill it so you can add to the Prosecco as people arrive for dinner/to a party . I made enough to serve 80 people at my Christmas party and they went down really well.

These are great-I've made them a few times and they always go down really well. I had 40 over for a Christmas party on sat and I made up two big jugs of the clementine mixture and it meant I could make cocktails for everyone on arrival with little effort. I added edible glitter to the clementine slices and served them in big coupe glasses and they looked fab!
