Cocktails & Countdowns

Pin It
PART OF THE FUN (OK, almost all of it) about New Year celebrations is drinking bubbly. Usually I pass on champagne because I find it to be too bland. It's not that I have it too much; in fact I rarely drink sparkling wine or any of the fancy schmancy stuff. For the holidays, I like to use flavored liqueurs and champagne to make glittering drinks... so for those of you eager to label me a lush, put a cork in it! ;-)


DRYNESS & SWEETNESS SIMPLIFIED:











This is a Strawberry cocktail that uses demi-sec wine (although any sparkling wine will do, really). It's fruity and delicious!

INGREDIENTS
  • 4 fresh strawberries for garnish, 4 hulled and diced strawberries, distributed evenly
  • 4 teaspoons grenadine syrup
  • 4 ounces strawberry liqueur
  • 1 bottle sparkling wine, demi-secs pair well with desserts (and strawberries!)  

Photo source unknown--but I will attribute if it's yours!

Goodbye 2010, Hello 2011. Be happy and safe everyone!

love,
