ART 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!
- 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!)
