You are Cordially Invited to Champagne Sunday!

Hey Dolls! Sometimes you don’t need a mixed cocktail; just a most-fabulous glass of bubbly – undisturbed. Town & Country recently published its list of Champagne Bottles to Try; with UK blog, Country & Townhouse, sharing its list of the 10 Best-Selling Champagne Brands in the World. Does your favorite make the list? In my quest for the perfect grape, I also stumbled upon a great article on how best to choose a champagne. Peep the deets here.

But in keeping with tradition, I am still bringing you the option of a champagne cocktail. This week’s recipe is compliments of Food + Wine. I admit to not yet having tried it, but was intrigued by the ingredients and the rimmed glass. I invite you to trying it with me and leave a comment with your thoughts. I will update my post with a my thoughts when I make it this week. Peep the mixology below.

Marasca Fizz

The Ingredients |

  • 3 maraschino cherries, plus 3/4 ounce syrup from the jar
  • superfine sugar
  • 3 dashes of Angostura Bitters
  • 2 brown sugar cubes
  • 1/2 ounce Cherry Heering or cherry liqueur
  • 4 ounces chilled champagne

The Mixology | Moisten the outer rim of the flute with 1/2 ounce maraschino cherry syrup and coat with superfine sugar. Sprinkle the bitters over the sugar cubes. Add the Cherry Heering, maraschino cherries and the remaining 1/4 ounce of maraschino cherry syrup to the flute. Top with champagne and add the sugar cubes. Serve, sip + enjoy!

Until then, keep sharing the pretty,
