Thirsty Thursday – The Korbel Cosmopolitan

Yesterdays One Word Wednesday – Dreaming…  is exactly that – a dream.  I dream of a family ski vacation some day.  Dreams are nice, aren’t they?

But now on with reality.  With New Year’s Eve just 2 days away I could tell you were in the mood for a beverage.  Who knew champagne could be used in different cocktails?  Not me – I’ve only had it poured from the bottle into that plastic cup.   Can you tell I’m not a high maintenance girl.

Korbel has all kinds of recipes on their site to make all kinds of drinks.  Now I have not tasted any of these but if I were to sample a few – I think this one would be my favorite.

Happy New Year and please drink responsibly.  That means no drinking and driving!

    Kendra, New Year’s is well past but I needed a little Firday night celebration so I tried the Champagne Cosmo, with a little twist… instead of cranberry juice I used pomegrante juice (mainly because it was the only thing close to cranberry that I had in the house). Well it turned out yummy! Since pomegrante juice is a bit sweeter than cranberry juice, I used slightly less. I enjoyed the experimenting, and needless to say, enjoyed the cocktail. Thanks for the inspiration!

      Corinne – glad you liked it but I’m not sure you’ve ever met a cocktail you didn’t enjoy! 🙂 Would love to enjoy one with you soon though!
