Veronica's Champagne Cocktail

Day 321

Veronica's Champagne Cocktail
4 shots out of 5

Happy New Year!  Today is the beginning of a brand new year.  Since every year seems to go faster then the one before it, I have a feeling 2013 will be gone before I know it.  How was everyone's New Years?  We had a great time on New Years Eve.  Any new cocktails I should know about?

I gave tonight's cocktail 4 shots out of 5.  My husband cooks breakfast every New Years morning late morning and during today's breakfast mimosa's were being made.  One of my friends switched out the orange juice for cranberry juice which she said she liked better.  I decided to try that cocktail tonight and in doing so searched online real quick for an actual name for the cocktail with.........no luck.  Instead I decided to name it after my friend who introduced it to me.  I like this better then a regular mimosa and will request it anytime mimosas are being made from now on.  Thank You Veronica!

Here is the recipe for a Veronica's Champagne Cocktail:

  • 1 1/2 oz champagne
  • 1 1/2 oz cranberry juice
In a champagne flute pour in both ingredients and enjoy!

Here is a photo of the end result:

Here's to a fresh new year!  May it be all you hoped it would be.........and if not, there's always cocktails!

  1. I like cranberry mixed with ginger ale or with lemon/lime soda, so I bet mixed with champagne would be lovely. I usually have cranberry juice, too, whereas orange is only a periodic thing. (orange spoils a lot faster)
