Christmas In Summer

This looks very Christmassy with its snowy top suspended above the spiced ruby red liquid, but it is very thirst-quenching and works well as a summer cooler.

75 ml/2 fl oz cranberry cordial
2 allspice berries, crushed
2 slices of orange
2 cinnamon sticks
250 ml/9 fl oz boiling water

Divide the cranberry cordial between 2 heatproof glasses, then add a crushed allspice berry, an orange slice and a cinnamon stick to each glass.

With care, pour the boiling water into the glasses. Leave to cool, then chill.

When you are ready to serve, float a scoop of ice cream on the top of each glass.
