Hi everyone! It has been forever since I’ve had a chance to sit down and post. Things have been crazy with the holidays and finishing school. That’s right! I completed my Masters program! Although I don’t walk until May, I will have my degree in hand in just a few short days and I am beyond excited and proud of this accomplishment.
Now that Christmas has passed, I spoiled my loved ones and Santa spoiled me, I’m looking forward to the new year! 2015 was rocky but I’ve grown so much that I’m extremely optimistic about 2016 and all the great things in store for me.
That being said, we have to bring in the new year right! Since I have been MIA for awhile, I’m gonna give you TWO cocktails for your New Year’s Eve celebrations. Champagne is definitely the quintessential drink for the holiday so of course these cocktails will be champagne based. Random fact: Champagne can only be called by that name if the grapes were grown in Champagne, France. Otherwise it’s just sparkling wine.
This first cocktail, the Champagne Punch Bellini, comes from Crazy for Crust.
I want to try it with orange sorbet and orange slices!
Y’all know by now that I loveeeee tequila and therefore margaritas lol Something about that agave flavor just gets me every time. This next cocktail is a play on my favorite drink using champagne for an extra surprise! These Champagne Margaritas come from The Kitchen is My Playground. For the sake of simplicity, I modified the recipe a bit.
I can’t wait to see how these cocktails work out for ya’ll! I’m definitely planning on making the Champagne Punch Bellini. Check Instagram @cocktailswithkiera and Twitter @cocktailswithk for updates! Don’t forget to share your creations with me using #cocktailswithkiera!
I wish you all a very Happy New Year! Thank you for your support of my little blog in 2015. I hope to see you back here in the New Year!
