Good day! Welcome to Champagne Thursday! I am your gracious hostess, Kathy. *curtsey* I'm not 100% sure where we came up with Champagne Thursday but I do think it had something to do with the chick flick where Sarah Jessica Parker is a professional man therapist and tries to force Matthew Mcconaughey to grow up and move out of his parents house. I'm Googling it…. Ah! Failure to Launch! Anyway, I love Champagne. I kind of like Thursday since it's almost Friday but not enough to not require a little bubbling happy persuasion to get me through.
I looooooooove Champagne. I know I said that already but I need to actually convey to you how much I love it. So let's enjoy this recipe we found on Pinterest recently. This cocktail kind of combines two of our favorite drinks into one beautiful libation.
- 1 1/2 ounces vodka (we prefer Grey Goose or Belvedere)
- 1/2 ounce triple sec or Grand Marnier
- 1/2 ounce cranberry juice
- 1/2 ounce fresh squeezed lime juice
- 2 ounces champagne (on the sweeter side)
Combine vodka, triple sec, cranberry juice, lime juice and ice in a cocktail shaker. Shake, shake, shake. (I'll refrain from adding booty to this part). Pour into a chilled martini glass. Top with champagne and garnish with a couple frozen blueberries or whatever you think looks snazzy.
