Sparkling Pomegranate French 75

With New Year’s Eve just a few days away, what better time is there to talk about festive bubbly cocktails?! Although, in all seriousness, I am advocate of a good bubbly cocktail precisely 100% of the time. Or just a good bottle of bubbly by itself. That’s always a fully acceptable option. Today though, we’re …

Summery Champagne Mojitos

There’s a great beachy, open air bar a few miles from where my sister lives in South Florida and the mojitos there are a force to be reckoned with. To be honest, I’m pretty sure there’s nothing special about their mojitos except for the fact that you sip them under palm trees overlooking the water, but that fact alone sets them apart. These mojitos are special not because they make palm trees appear in your backyard, but because they are made with champagne (or your favorite prosecco) and that elevates them entirely. You can skip the traditional rum or keep it in the mix. You can make one just for yourself or a pitcher for all your friends. (I’ve included recipe variations for all of the above.) The key is a good simple syrup, all the fresh mint and limes you can get your hands on and, of course, those bubbles. Bubbly makes everything better and these champagne mojitos are proof of that!

Gingerberry Sparkler

This super pretty gingerberry sparkler is a cocktail that I made over the holidays and shared over on Inspired By This. I had fully intended to share the post then, but if you recall that was right about the time that I came down with the first wave of the death plague that decided to hang around for nearly a month and it just never happened. That said, this cocktail would make the perfect bubbly concoction for sipping while you’re watching the Oscar’s this weekend!

10 Must Try Mimosa Recipes for Easter

I’m still over here wrapping my head around the fact that Easter is so early this year and boom! It’s here already. Time for a good mimosa recipe, am I right? Most years we have Easter dinner at my father’s house, which we’ll be doing again this year. My dad is always good for pulling out a great bottle of wine to serve with holiday dinners, but personally I’m all about a fabulous mimosa recipe on Easter. (See: Mimosa popsicles for the win.)
