You Are Cordially Invited to Champagne Sunday …

Christmas is all about the glitz and sparkle. There is nothing better this time of year when sitting back and taking in the beauty of your holiday decorations than a “glass of sparkle.” But don’t think that you have to drink it as is, there are so many options for enjoying your favorite Champagne, Prosecco or Cava. Here’s one with a name that is fitting for the season ~

Christmas in a Glass

Ingredients

  • 1 bottle Prosecco, or other sparkling dry white wine, well chilled
  • 1 bottle gingerbread flavored syrup (or cranberry flavored syrup)

Directions. Pour the Prosecco into glasses. Add a capful of the syrup to each glass of the Prosecco, to taste.

As an extra special treat on Champagne Sunday, our very own clean eating expert, Nicole Nichelson, is sharing with us her annual Nik’s 12 Days of Cocktails. We are a couple days behind, so we will use today to catch up. But for the next 10 days, you can enjoy a festive holiday cocktail with your family or to select one of her swanky libations to serve at your holiday soiree. Click the links to peep the mixology.
