What’s the point of a cocktail if it can’t transport you, momentarily at least, to some otherworldly place? As this somewhat gloomy year comes to an end, we decided to turn to a popular holiday theme to make sure the weeks ahead are happy, joyful, merry and bright.
Adding decadence in this otherwise frugal year is easy with our gold-dusted, berry-infused champagne cocktail. Serve it as the perfect aperitif at the season’s most spectacular party or keep it elegantly simple by adding just a splash of Prosecco or Cava instead of champagne.
So then, our toast: May your days be merry and bright, and may your holiday season be filled with more of life’s little luxuries.
Merry and BriGht
