Tiny Bubbles

Ta-dah! (Yes, you're in the right place!) In honor of my 100th post, I decided to launch a mini-redesign. Thanks to my great friend, Amani, (she did the heavy lifting...I learned a lot) my ugly blue template has been transformed! (Did you know that there are blogs about how to build a better blogger blog?) I hope to make a few more tweaks here and there (as we figure out how to do them) just to keep things looking fresh, but the overall look will remain as is. I hope you like it!

And, since this is the perfect opportunity for some tiny bubbles, I've included a recipe for a classic Champagne cocktail. Cheers!




Classic Champagne Cocktail

1 sugar cube
3 dashes of Angostura bitters
5 ounces Champagne or brut sparkling wine, chilled
Lemon twist for garnish

1. Drop the sugar cube into a chilled Champagne flute. Add the bitters. Top with the Champagne. Stir gently. Garnish with a strip of lemon peel, first twisting it over the glass to release the oils. Serve immediately!

Love the new look! Bubbly and bright! My current fave sparkly cocktail includes prosecco or champagne and a splash of St. Germain.
