You Are Cordially Invited to Champagne Sunday!

Hi Dolls! I’ve been away for a minute. The hubby and I went on a mini-vacay to Santa Fe, New Mexico, where we stayed at La Posada Resort and Spa. If you are ever planning a trip to the Southwest, La Posada is really a wonderful resort property. And Dolls, the spa is to die for! I selected the Osmosis Medi Facial, which didn’t disappoint.

But I digress. We’re back and are full swing in Memorial Day weekend activities and cookouts. But a memorable cookout is incomplete without a great lemonade, with a “pretty domestic” twist. Here is an “adult” lemonade cocktail that your friends will be sure love.

Champagne Lemonade

Ingredients
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh lemon juice
  • 1 bottle Champagne or sparkling wine
  • Thin lemon slices, for garnish
Directions

Put the sugar and 1 cup water into a small saucepan and bring it to a boil. Cook for 1 minute until the sugar has dissolved, turn off the heat, and allow the sugar syrup to cool.

In a pitcher combine the cooled sugar syrup with the lemon juice and remaining 2 cups water and mix well. Fill a Champagne flute halfway with the lemonade and top with Champagne. Garnish with a lemon slice. Yields 8 cocktails. Chin Chin!

Happy Memorial Day!

Until Then,

L.
