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:


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



  • Mix the Prosecco, Triple Sec and juice together and serve.

To spruce up the drink I added a festive garnish…


  • frozen cranberries
  • fresh mint leaves 
  • toothpicks 


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


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