Here's a wonderful recipe that I've been using for being out of the office, taken from last week's Observer:
100g salted peanuts
300ml cranberry juice
100ml Absolut Vodka
Mix the cranberry juice and vodka to taste, then decant the peanuts into a small bowl.
Place both the drink and the peanuts on a side table next to a comfy chair.
Sit down in the chair and drink the cocktail, occasionally eating the peanuts as the mood takes you.
Stay in the chair and do not return to the office until 14th August.
Tip: to make things go really smoothly, make sure everyone calls Jenna and Rosie if they need help while you're away.
