So it is Christmas eve and things are just starting to get festive around here. The tree is up, refrigerator stocked and cheesy, Christmas carols on repeat! There are a few more little things to do before we can truly relax but we are getting drunk on the yuletide spirit! Speaking of drinking, we are having a relaxing, slow day tomorrow with some lovely friends coming over in the evening for a few drinks and some chilled out movie watching. Food-wise I am expecting a world of leftovers and snacks but we wanted to make it a little special with a holiday cocktail (or two). Here is what we will be serving – it is a little bit bitter at first sip but it mellows out over time and is really refreshing. I am also totally in love with the Campari bottle and typeface – you know me, a packaging girl through and through!
30ml Cinzano Rosso
Thinly peeled rind of one orange
To serve: prosecco, chilled
Combine Campair, Cinzano Rosso and orange peel in a glass filled with ice, top with prosecco and serve.
We wanted to wish you all a wonderful holiday season and a safe trip into the new year. Thanks so much for visiting and commenting – it really does mean the world to me to have you guys here, listening. I cannot tell you how much I value each and every one of you and the comments you make. So, cheers! Let’s make 2013 the best yet!
Note: Please excuse my dreadful fingernails. I stupidly got a shellac (for want of a better word) at ProfessioNail in Queen’s Plaza and they put something on my nail that I can NOT get off!!! They are totally trashed and I now have to wait until they grow out. Oh well, serves me right for going to a nail bar! If you value your nails then STAY AWAY!
