This 007 James Bond Champagne Cocktail is refreshing, bubbly and slightly sweet. With only FOUR ingredients, this is the perfect libation to cheers any special occasion!
Are you excited for the New Year? I am. I’m always hopeful and optimistic that the year to come will bring wonderful things my way. Last year I decided to stop just dreaming, pull the trigger, and start this blog. After the initial frustration (and few emotional breakdowns) of getting the site up and operational, NSN has brought much joy into my life. I have ‘met’ some seriously nice foodies and shared dishes I am proud of. I am anxious and enthusiastic to see what 2015 will hold.
*Improve my food photography skills
*Improve NSN as an overall site (techy boring stuff and design)
*Have less blonde moments (not sure this is even possible… lol)
What do you guys think about resolutions? Yay or Nay to making them? And, do you have any? Do share! 🙂
Anyways, on to the fun stuff… libations! Specifically, this champagne cocktail – The 007 James Bond. This drink is refreshing, bubbly and festively fun. It is an excellent drink to cheers with as you ring in your New Year.
I also provided you with a bonus champagne cocktail recipe, because I adore you that much! The French 75 is equally as delicious, and New Year’s worthy, as the James Bond. Plus, since you already have the champagne, you might as well make both… right??
These cocktails are from a book my wonderful Mother-In-Law gifted to Boy and I. The Cocktail Hour by Ben Reed. It is a great, fun book to keep on your bar and it’s filled with a variety of delicious libations.*
So, if you are 21 or older, grab a glass, pour yourself a 007 and ring in the New Year in classy James Bond style. Or pour yourself a French 75, either way is a win-win! Cheers, my friends, and Happy New Year!
