Raspberry Resolution

Day 316

Raspberry Resolution
4.5 shots out of 5

Four days until New Years Eve.  Sorry, I just have to say that out loud to be able to wrap my mind around it.......I'm still in shock.  I'd better test out some New Years Eve cocktails while I can then right?  Tonight I decided to create my own based off of a non-alcoholic version that I had created where you literally substitute sparkling cider for the champagne.

I gave tonight's cocktail 4.5 shots out of 5.  This is such an easy cocktail to make, I mean you already have the champagne in your glass, why not add some raspberry puree to it?  Don't like raspberry......well then try some passion fruit puree, strawberry puree, prickly pear puree.........whatever flavored puree you can find that you like.  Even better, buy them all and make them all to make sure you know which one is your absolute favorite.  You could always have a taste test bar for your guests on New Years Eve so that everyone can see which is the best.

Here is the recipe for a Raspberry Resolution:

  • 4 oz champagne
  • 1 oz raspberry puree
In a champagne flute, pour in your champagne and raspberry puree.  Stir to mix the puree in well.

Here is a couple photos of the end result:

Here's to a simple New Years Eve cocktail.......because honestly, by the time midnight comes, who can measure out ingredients anymore??

  1. bwhahaaaaa! oh that last line made me laugh! :-) xoxo

  2. I do, in fact, have everything I need to make this, and intend to-- for New Year's Day breakfast, when the hubby-man and I celebrate, by starting EARLY on the booze-festivities.

    Happy New Year to you-- I await the last days of your cocktail year with high anticipation!
