New Year Bubbles


Good bye 2016!  It was quite a year.  I took a break from Cocktails “after” Class in 2016, but so many people have requested a renewal of cocktail ideas, that I am returning in 2017.  To start off the new year in style this is an easy and delicious recipe for tonight and even tomorrow morning for brunch!

Here’s to 2017, and those new year’s resolutions.  Some of mine include:  stay positive, eat less sugar, consume less alcohol, learn something new, stay true to my values, get enough sleep, eat more veges, have fun, continue exercising, reconnect with friends, read 52 books, etc….. This is a good time to reset.  Best wishes for a happy new year!

.25 oz. brandy
.75 oz. ruby port
.75 oz. orange juice
4 oz.  champagne (or sparking wine)

In a cocktail shaker mix the brandy, port, and orange juice.  Add ice and shake well.  Strain into a champagne flute.  Top with champagne!  Happy New Year!
