Tonight's cocktail is worthy of a separate entry, as it was so delicious - quite light and relatively low in alcohol - take 4 measures of dry white wine, 1.5 measures of Cointreau or triple sec, and the finely grated zest of a lemon. Stir with plenty of ice then strain into 2 Martini glasses. Top each glass up with a little chilled soda water and drop in 2 Maraschino cherries per glass. This was so delicious, light and refreshing, and incredibly lemony. I have no idea what its association with the Crimea might be - one would expect vodka. Perhaps someone can enlighten me. Anyway, do try it.
