December 24th – The Poinsettia
Well, tonight is my last post in this series. Yes, I know; advent calendars usually go through the 25th, but, to be honest, I think 24 cocktails are enough and I’m taking Christmas off from the blog. It’s been a lot of fun though! I’ve had a great time researching, experimenting with, and making cocktails to share here. The only drawback is that I think I’ve turned my wife into an alcoholic. Before this she didn’t drink very often, and now she’s barely home from work when she’s asking what kind of drinking I’m making her!! She’s going to have to start making her own now!!
Of the 23 prior cocktails I’ve shared here this month only 1 has been a Champagne based cocktail. Before I finish I want to share another one, as Champagne is such a great celebratory drink. The Poinsettia has been around for awhile and it makes a great drink for that last minute Christmas party or a fun and festive drink to serve on New Year’s Eve.
Again, thanks for reading. I hope that you’ve enjoyed this month of cocktails as much as I have enjoyed sharing them. Please let me know what you thought of the cocktails I offered up this month. I’d love to hear what your favorites, for the blog, were or other favorite holiday tipples that you enjoy.
3 oz. Cranberry Juice
1/2 oz. Cointreau
In a Champagne flute mix the cranberry juice and Cointreau. Fill with Champagne and serve.
