Nothing commemorates the new year quite like a Champagn cocktail. I’m Anthony Dias Blue with the Blue Lifestyle Minute sponsored by CUISINART. If you’re hosting a party, serve up the Kir Roya le. Fill each glass with 1 ounce of framboise or cassis liqueur, top with Champagne and garnish with a lemon twist. A Champagne Cooler is also easy. Pour 1 ounce of brandy and 1 ounce of Triple Sec into the glass and top off with Champagne. Stir and garnish with mint sprigs. If all else fails, mix orange juice and Champagne in a 1 to 2 ratio and use orange slices for garnish. The ever simple Mimosa never disappoints. If you don’t have Champagne, sparkling wine works great. Just make sure it’s chilled. Cheers! I’m Anthony Dias Blue sponsored by CUISINART-fine small appliances and cookware. Visit CUISINART.COM.
