  1. Put the sugar in a small pan with 50ml water and the pared lemon zest. Heat gently until the sugar has dissolved, then bring to the boil. Remove from the heat and leave to cool.
  2. Mix the liqueur in a jug with the lemon juice and 80ml sugar syrup; chill until ready to serve.
  3. Slice the lemon half into 4, then halve each slice to give 8 semi-circles. Use a cocktail stick to poke two holes in the rind, then skewer rosemary sprigs in the holes to make ‘antlers’. Push the cocktail stick through the centre of the lemon slice and attach a glacé cherry for a ‘nose’. Repeat to make 8 decorations.
  4. Half-fill 8 glasses with ice, then divide the mixture between them. Top up with soda water and garnish with the Rudolph decorations.
