I can't believe we're less than two weeks away from Christmas and three weeks away from New Year's. This year has been a whirlwind of frenzied activity, packed with work, travel, gardening, chickens, dogs, cats, and cooking. If I can say anything about the past 11 months, it's that they were productive. The height of the holiday workload is nearly passed, though, and at the end of the month I'm going to make myself a delicious drink, sit back, put on some Ella Fitzgerald, enjoy the lights from the Christmas tree and my roaring fireplace, and relax. I feel like unwinding at the end of a long day with a little bubbly is a wonderful treat, and this cocktail certainly fits the bill.
- 8 ounces sparkling white wine, like prosecco
- 4 ounces cranberry juice
