Hi Everyone! It’s Nicole, Annette’s web manager and friend. We are staying in for New Year’s Eve this year, but that doesn’t mean the holiday should be any less special…it just might mean an earlier bedtime. I wanted to share a few tips for sprucing up your bubbly. In my opinion, nothing beats a glass of bubbles, but you can always add a little something to up the ante.
Tip one: use frozen cranberries
One of my favorite holiday tricks is using frozen cranberries to keep beverages cold. 3-4 frozen cranberries in a glass of champagne are not only beautiful but useful! I usually buy a bag and freeze the entire thing. Such a simple spruce.
Tip two: switch up your glassware
Champagne glasses are tall and elegant, but I never miss an opportunity to use a coupe. My favorite coupe glasses are the ones I find while antique shopping, but these from Estelle are a close runner-up.
Tip three: sprinkle some sparkle
My sister gave me edible champagne glitter for Christmas, and it is honestly so fun. It makes your drink absolutely sparkle! Then, my sister-in-law gave me cotton candy that you put in your champagne. How fun is that?! Clearly, my family knows me well.
Tip four: splash some St. Germain
I love a splash of St. Germain liqueur in my champagne. The elderflower has floral notes which pairs well with crisp champagne. Be careful to only use a dash!
I hope you all have a wonderful start to 2022!
