Pity the poor driver. There's everyone else getting stuck into their Champagne or mulled wine or gins and tonic, while he or she is having to make the best of a glass of lemonade.
So, believing that he or she deserves better, here's a gorgeous recipe for Chocolate Orange (on the left), from Ice (otherwise known as Simon Atkinson), an expert on cocktails.
Makes 4 tall glasses
|4 good squeezes chocolate sauce (from a squeezy bottle)|
|14fl oz (400ml) freshly squeezed orange juice|
|225 ml crushed ice|
|12 scoops good-quality vanilla ice cream|
|12 fresh or tinned mandarin orange segments, to decorate|
|Oven temperatures and Conversions|

This recipe is from Delia's Christmas Easy Magazine 2003
In a blender or food processor, blend the ice, ice cream and juice together till smooth.
Then, decorate the insides of the glass with chocolate sauce. To do this, drizzle a little chocolate from the bottle into the bottom of the glass. Then, holding the glass at an angle, squeeze the sauce from the rim to give a vertical line down one side.
Turn the glass and repeat until you have about 8 vertical lines.
Pour the orange mixture into the glasses and decorate each one with a few fresh or tinned mandarin segments.

A pina colada without the rum (below left), but still tasting deliciously creamy and looking every bit as good as the real thing.
Here is something special for Christmas parties and it looks just like mulled wine
Lassi (on the right), is an Indian yoghurt drink and this recipe - perfect for drivers at parties - is the creation of a wonderful cook, Pami Dhanani, who has introduced a subtle Indian tone.
A glass of something warm and spicy goes very well with warmed mince pies during the party season - even though we no longer seem to greet guests rubbing frosty fingers and shaking snow off their boots!
This is a very flexible Christmas recipe, allowing you to adjust the quantities as you wish...and if unexpected guests arrive, just add more water and fruit to eke it out!
