Apple Champagne

Day 317



Apple Champagne
3.5 shots out of 5


Three more days until New Years Eve.  My husband got his costume today and my oldest son and myself need to get ours very soon.  I am really looking forward to New Years Eve, I almost can't stand it!  One of my very best friends is driving three hours to be here with us for the party which gets me all happy and excited when I think about it.

I gave tonight's cocktail 3.5 shots out of 5.  I am not the biggest champagne fan.  On New Years Eve I usually take my couple of sips and then pick back up my beer or cocktail that I have been drinking and move on with my night.  This cocktail has is one where you don't get a nosefull of bubbles when you drink it.  The apple juice takes that away and the sugar sweetens it up just a wee bit.  This is a pretty good cocktail, not an overly flavorful cocktail......but not one that would make me think of New Years due to the fact that it's not really bubbly.  I found tonight's cocktail at tablespoon.com.

Here is the recipe for an Apple Champagne:

  • 4 oz champagne
  • 3 oz apple juice
  • 1/4 tsp superfine sugar
In a champagne flute or bud vase pour in your champagne and apple juice and stir.  Then stir in your sugar until it is dissolved.

Here's to enjoying the last three days and so many hours of 2012.

Cheers!!
