Poinsettia Champagne Cocktail
Happy Thanksgiving! I hope your day is warmed by glowing embers and the embrace of family and friends. Eat well and enjoy the comforts of this special day. Know that I count you among my blessings. Thank you for a wonderful year.
From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...I love to serve this elegant cocktail for special breakfasts or brunch during the holiday season. It's simple to make and the Champagne lends a festive air to a morning celebration. Ginger ale can be used to fashion a similar drink for any children at the table. Bubbles will be more pronounced if you serve the cocktail in a Champagne flute and add the wine just before serving the drinks. Any good sparkling white wine can substitute for the Champagne.
