Happy New Year

Happy New Year! I hope you’re recovering nicely from an evening of champagne, party horns and a midnight kiss!

Cocktail Countdown

Ring in the new year with a cocktail countdown! Five drinks in one night might be a little ambitious. I’d rather start with one today and work through the list one day at a time, ending on New Year’s Day. It’s a festive way to celebrate without the risk of detox.

5. Rosemary Gin Fizz - A sparkly drink that takes minutes to make and packs a punch

4. In the Pink - A blend of grapefruit, pomegranate and a generous splash of vodka (make this one ahead of time and keep it in a pitcher)

3. Bakewell Sour - A cherry-laden dessert drink

2. Bittersweet Negroni - A kumquat garnish adds an unexpected twist to a classic concoction

1. Cans of Sofia - If you make it this far, you’ll appreciate the ease of opening a can of bubbly

Cheers!

Weekend Snapshots:

  1. prematurely planning Halloween 2012 with a Breakfast at Tiffany’s sleep mask and tassel earrings (they’re far more practical than ear plugs)
  2. a sweet elephant ornament given to us by our friends who recently visited Thailand
  3. preparing our New Year’s toast
  4. a glittery Kate Spade coin purse
  5. packing up vintage ornaments
  6. an optimistic spring mix of grass green and turquoise
