I love margaritas, and I feel like you don’t need a special occasion to enjoy one, but sometimes you just want to get jiggy with it and create something fun. That’s what happened in the kitchen this morning while I was making this recipe. I picked up a beautiful pineapple at the store the other day, and it was sitting on the counter waiting to ripen for me to use it. The aroma that comes out when you cut into a pineapple is sensational, sweet aromatic and tropical. So lets start this party off with this tasty cocktail. (more…)

SUNSET CITRUS CHAMPAGNE COCKTAIL

| CHAMPAGNE, CITRUS, COCKTAIL, DRINK

I don’t think there is anything better than a simple champagne cocktail, citrus and a sunset. So that’s where the name came from while sipping on this and watching a beautiful sunset. I’ll keep this nice and simple for you. Only a few ingredients needed for this and you can swap out the citrus to your favorite and use your favorite champagne as well.

A perfect cocktail to serve at your next brunch or a special occasion. Make it a fun way for your guests to customize their champagne cocktail by providing an array of freshly squeezed juices to mix with their champagne.

1 bottle of your favorite champagne, I used a Rose Brut for mine
3 blood oranges, 2.5 juiced and the other half sliced for garnish
3 smaller oranges, 2.5 juiced and the other half sliced for garnish

METHOD
Mix both juices in a glass. Add the champagne into a stemmed glasses, add 4 tbsp of mixed juices to each glass, garnish with a thin slice or half of slice of citrus and enjoy. Easy peasy.

Enjoy and Bon Appetité!
