Simple Spirits for New Years Eve

Happy New Years Eve!  Here are two quick and easy ideas for festive drinks to ring in the New Year.  One is bubbly and one is steamy.

Cranberry Champagne Drink:

Combine equal parts of cranberry juice with champagne and garnish with two cranberries and a rosemary sprig.  The rosemary looks festive and smells like the holiday season, too.  My guests liked this drink and commented that the rosemary really didn’t alter the taste that much.  All gave a thumbs up.

Baileys & Coffee Idea:

Baileys and coffee is a popular combination.  To mix things up a bit, I added 1 cup of Baileys with a Hint of Mint flavor to a cup of coffee.  Then top with whipped cream, a sprinkle of nutmeg and one cinnamon stick.  It not only looks festive, but tastes terrific!  This drink truly warms up the celebration.

Have a great time tonight and be safe.  Happy New Year to all!
