Top Off 2016!!


2016 is coming to a close and while you may be completely exhausted from a busy holiday season, there is no excuse for a lousy New Years Eve!  You’ve got one last opportunity to top off a great year with a bit of bubbly- and here’s how to do it! Celebratory Champagne cocktails are the easiest way to impress your guests without much fuss!  I always start with a great Champagne (like Perrier-Jouet) and then top it off with something fun and a delightful Sparkling Cocktail is born.

The “New” Old Fashioned Champagne Cocktail is both classic and contemporary.  This delightful drink is a fabulous way to remember the good times of 2016 and celebrate what is to come in the new year!  Simply start by dropping a sugar cube into a Champagne flute, add a dash of bitters, a couple dashes of whiskey, and top with some bubbly!  Finish with a maraschino cherry and a brûléed orange for the perfect New Years Eve pleasure!

Our Vanilla Pear Cocktail begins with a sugar-rimmed Champagne flute, followed by homemade vanilla pear syrup.  We, then top it with Champagne and garnish with candied ginger and a sliced pear.  This is the perfect seasonal sparkling cocktail to celebrate a sweet year!

And finally, a festive mocktail is also in order for kids or those wanting to start the New Year off without a hangover!  We like a cranberry fizz, presented in a cocktail shaker for the fun of it!  Just combine cranberry juice with vanilla pear syrup and top with club soda.  Float a few fresh cranberries and you’ve got something special for everyone!

Have An Amazing 2017! Cheers!
