Happy Holidays…a slightly belated post

Christmas and New Years have come and gone but cocktails are here to stay! With that being said; I was in charge of drinks and a side dish for christmas dinner, the drinks were a huge hit, the brussel sprouts were anything but (a task to undertake in 2013). So today I will share the cocktail recipe with you.

Nigella Lawson’s Poinsettia Cocktail:

Ingredients:

  • 750 ml bottle of chilled Prosecco or other fizzy dry wine
  • 1/2 cup Triple Sec (Cointreau, Grand Marnier) 
  • 2 cups cranberry juice

To spruce up the drink I added a festive garnish…

Ingredients:

  • frozen cranberries
  • fresh mint leaves 
  • toothpicks 

Directions:

  • Skewer the cranberry and mint leaf (alternating each ingredient)

Cheers to 2013 and all of the adventures it has in store for us!
