AndressFest is over for another year, and as usual it was a ripsnorting success with lashings of Ursulan goodness.

Ursula Andress reveals the secrets of her success to an admiring Dean Martin.

AndressFest '10 featured the sort of diversity we've come to expect of Ursula, from a 1963 Western to a 1974 Italian sex farce to a 1978 horror thriller.

It also featured the debut of my latest Ursula-themed cocktail. Joining 2007's Golden Ursula, 2008's Dirty Ursula and 2009's Creamy Ursula, I'd like to introduce:

The Cheeky Ursula

1 peach
75ml vodka
75 ml peach schnapps
300ml lemonade
ice cubes
black pepper

Serves 3

Slice the peach to produce three cheeks, and set the cheeks aside. Peel the remainder of the peach and dice the flesh. Put the flesh, the vodka and the schnapps in a blender and blend until smooth.

Strain the blender mix into a large jug. Add the lemonade and ice and stir.

Cut halfway through a peach cheek and hang on the side of a martini glass. Fill glass with drink, straining ice as you go. Top with freshly ground black pepper.

Like the woman herself, the Cheeky Ursula is sweet as a peach but unexpectedly peppery. I drank six of them. I also woke up the next morning with a headache, but that's entirely unrelated.
