can i admit, i have never fancied new years eve? the idea of paying a pretty penny to line up at a lounge/bar and ring in the new year with a bunch of strangers hasn’t appealed to me since i was 19. although this year, we planned a last minute trip to seattle for the night, most new years are spent with close friends, drinking a glamorous cocktail, noshing on a few nibbly bites and laughing at ourselves playing cheesy games. preferably in pj’s.
midnight kiss cocktail (vintage cocktail book)
- rim the edge of a champagne/wine or cocktail glass with white or gold sugar
- pour 3/4 oz. well-chilled vodka into the glass, and fill with champagne
- add a splash of cranberry juice for colour and flavour
beef satay (sub tofu or chicken for beef if you prefer)
happy new year, however you choose to celebrate it!
