NYE Sparkling Cocktails

A Toast Like No Other

Champagne is a staple for a New Year’s party but everyone knows that good champagne can get very pricey.  To save some money this year, try creating your own signature cocktail – it’s easier than you think!  I’m known for my innovative cocktails and I love to have fun with inexpensive sparkling wines – turning them into festive holiday cocktails with a few simple twists ranging from drunken cherries, cranberries and pomegranate seed to complimentary liquors such as lemoncello, elderflower and lavender.

Seen on the TODAY Show.  Watch the video here.

Cherry Kiss

3 Drunken Cherries with 1 tsp juice, ½ oz lemoncello, 6 oz prosecco, garnished with a lemon twist

Cranberry 75

Three Drunken Cranberries with 1 tbs juice, ½ oz Grand Marnier, 6 oz brut sparkling wine, garnished with an orange twist

Pink POM POM

½ oz Pom Juice, ½ oz Elderflower Liquor, 6 oz brut sparkling wine, garnish with pom seeds

Non-alcoholic versions are just as good (and cheaper). Try substituting sparkling cider or using my new favorite, Mark’s Must Haves… the beverage carbonator.  Make your own sparking WHATEVER to create fresh, real, authentic customized carbonated drinks easily and quickly

Make my signature sparking mock-tails like:

Pomegranate Hibiscus Fizz

Combine all of the ingredients into the beverage carbonator, except garnishes.  Carbonate the mixture according to the product instructions.  Pour into a champagne flute, garnish with teaspoon of pomegranate seeds and an orange twist.

Fizzy Ginger Pear

10 oz Pear Juice, 6 oz white grape juice, ½  oz of ginger juice 8 oz. ice cold water garnished with a lemon twist

Baked Apple Fizz
