Good afternoon! A happy New Years Eve to you. I hope that you had a great weekend. I have been on a “staycation” since Christmas and I have loved every minute. It has been so nice to have a week with no plans, no jumping out of bed to go to the gym, staying up late(last night I was up until 2:00 am reading), sleeping in, eating junk food, going for long walks or just sitting by the fire. I am enjoying the waning hours of 2018 because there are big changes happening in my life in 2019 and although I am a little anxious about them I am excited as well.
Do you have plans for New Years Eve? I personally have never, ever been a fan of going out on New Years. I like to have people over for dinner and drinks, or to be with family. More often than not we stay at home, make dinner and are in bed before the “ball drops” in Time Square.
If you are having a party and need a last minute cocktail idea you might enjoy this one, it has all of my favorite flavors, cranberry, lime, vodka,
4 ounces vodka
1/2 an ounce of Cointreau
8 ounces sweetened cranberry juice
Freshly squeezed lime juice (1 lime)
Pour vodka, cranberry juice, cointreau and lime juice into acocktail shaker, add ice and shake until mixed. Pour the mixture into a glassand then top up it off with the champagne. Add cranberries for for garnish.
I hope that you have a wonderful and safe evening if you are headed out and all the best for a happy, healthy New Year!
