In just a few short hours it will officially be 2013. How do you plan on ringing in the New Year? Sadly we don’t have anything planned this year, but I hope and pray that this time next year we can celebrate the start of a new year in a HOUSE and have friends and family over to help us celebrate. That would be a dream come true!
I know that plenty of people will be celebrating with friends and family and parties. I’m sure there will be plenty of cocktails and champagne being served tonight.
If you are looking for something a little different, why not try a little “Midnight Magic”. The beautiful purple color is sure to spark some romance just in time for the midnight kiss.
This recipe is super easy to make too.
Chandon Midnight Magic
2-3 oz Chandon Brut Classic
1/2 oz Cassis
1/2 oz white port
Pour the Cassis and white port into a champagne flute. Top with Chandon Brut Classic and a blackberry!
See… I told you it was easy.
If you happen to have any leftover sparkling wine you can always make a “Morning After Mimosa” (I ♥ Mimosas!). Simply pour the left over wine into an ice cube tray and freeze. The next day you can add some of the ice cubes and orange juice into a glass and enjoy. Now that is a great way to begin a new year!
If you would like some more cocktail recipes to add some sparkle to your New Year’s celebration visit www.Facebook.com/ChandonUSA. Once there click on the Share Some Sparkle tab for recipes and other great ideas. I love the entertaining tips. I cannot wait for the chance to try them out someday. I also love the recipes on the Share Some Sparkle tab. They have a recipe Barbecue Oysters with Sparkling Butter Sauce. Just the idea of a “sparkling butter sauce” intriques me.
Do you have a favorite cocktail you love to serve guests (or enjoy yourself) when celebrating the start of a new year? I would love to hear about it. Please feel free to leave a comment.
