I have made a lot of drinks in my day but this is by far one of my faves!  When it comes to entertaining I love anything that I can prepare ahead of time.  These individual, designer cocktails can be made up to two days ahead of time and they won't lose their sparkle.  Soooo good for a party, shower or any time you want to treat yourself!  Hope you love this one as much as my lucky taste testers do!!   Shopping list   sparkling moscato split (12.7 ounces), Barefoot makes a very affordable bubbly pink moscato for under $3 a split which doubles as your glass  pomegranate vodka  pomegranate juice  fresh oranges  How to  Begin by poring out 3 ounces of  moscato per individual bottle.  No need to be wasteful you can always sip on the "left overs" as you craft your cocktail  Add 1 ounce of pomegranate vodka  Add 3/4 ounce of pomegranate juice  Add 1/2 ounce of fresh squeezed orange juice, 1 large orange per four drinks  Garnish with a twist of orange rind and place the cap back on.  Secure a straw to the bottle with ribbon and voila' you are ready to entertain.  Cheers!!!

Picture Perfect New Years’ Cocktail

I love, love, love bubbles!  Anything with champagne in it is always a win in my book.  berries & bubbles is super easy to make and only requires a few ingredients.  Even better; right?!

Start 2018 off the right way and cheers with this delish drink.  Bonus: you can completely customize this drink by swapping out the fruit and sorbet flavors.

Shopping list 

  • sparkling rose
  • frozen strawberries
  • frozen raspberries
  • blackberry sorbet

How too 

using an eight ounce champagne flute add:

  • 1 whole frozen strawberry
  • 3 frozen raspberries
  • 5 ounces of sparkling rose
  • a heaping tablespoon of blackberry sorbet
  • garnish with a metallic straw

So easy and so good.  CHEERS too 2018!!!!!!!!!!
