I bought Mrs blazer the Hairy Bikers christmas cookbook last year. In it was a recipe for Christmas Vodka. Basically all the fruit and spice ingredients of Christmas pud soaked in Vodka for 3 days. Strain and re-bottle the vodka. Dilemma, what to do with the fruit? Answer make a Mrs beaton old fashioned fruit cake with it. Hic. Honestly officer i have only been eating cake!
