Boy do I have a treat for you today! Today 40 of my favorite blogs and I are having a Cocktail Party Blog Hop and sharing our favorite recipes for cocktails, desserts and treats. All perfect for an evening soiree.
I love myself some bubbly and there’s never a better time for a sparkling wine than during the holidays! Brut sparkling wine is a perfect base for a cocktail because the flavor is crisp and clean, and you can easily dress it up with a variety of mixers.
For the Sparkling Stars Champagne Cocktail, you’ll want to rim your glass with sugar. The sugar adds an extra touch of sweetness, which I find balances out the depth of the cognac. To do this you will want some simple syrup, some granulated sugar, edible glitter and edible glitter stars.
Just grab some adorable champagne glasses (these are from Crate and Barrel) and dip the rim into a bowl with about 1/4 an inch of simple syrup. Then dip the rim into a bowl of granulated sugar. Now you can strategically place the edible stars on the sugar. I did this by pouring some into a bowl and gently touching the sugared rim to the stars in the bowl, where ever I wanted them. Lastly sprinkle just a small amount of the edible glitter around the rim. Easy huh!
The hardest part about making this drink is to remember to pour the champagne/sparkling wine slowly. I mean SLOWLY. You don’t want it to bubble and fizz up and ruin your gorgeous rim!
