Happy Hour: Midnight Millionaire

Dec 16, 2011

It’s difficult to believe that in just a few short weeks, the calendar will close and 2012 will be upon us.  And while I usually love a new year, 2011 was very good to me, so I’m sad to see her go. 

Regardless, the New Year is a great time to celebrate life.  So why not celebrate in style with a cocktail that’s sure to raise the festivities to another level? 

Elit Midnight Millionaire

1 oz Stoli Elit
Perrier Jouët Fleur de Champagne (I prefer Rose.)
Raspberry for garnish

Pour the vodka into a Champagne flute. Fill with Champagne, and give it a light stir just to combine.
Add a single raspberry (or a few, depending on your taste) as a garnish.
The ingredients for this recipe are pricey, but you can easily sub in some less expensive choices.  For champagne, Miss M and I are both loving Piper Sonoma.  It’s the perfect under-$20 bottle.
I’ve had numerous requests for evening shoes, so I thought that I would share this pair.  I love a metallic shoe for evening, and the light sparkle on this black pump would be perfect for new years.  I also think the mesh cut outs are a bit edgy without being over-the-top. 
I’d wear them with bare legs.  Even if it’s a little chilly, I don’t particularly like to wear tights with evening clothes, unless I absolutely have to wear them.

    I'm confused by this cocktail — is Stoli Elit a flavored vodka, or is this just basically fortified champagne? If that latter, I'm not sure why this would be better than just having a second glass of champagne . . . .

    H.-I'm never opposed to more champagne.

    The texture of Elit is different, though the flavor is the same. It has almost a silky texture. No idea why. So when you put it together it has an interesting mouth feel. But hey, if you want champagne with raspberries, who am I to argue?

The Find: A Striped Tee

Without question, the most worn item in my wardrobe is a black-and-white striped tee. I wear it in winter under sweaters, in spring with white jeans, in summer with black shorts. I’ve been wearing the same one for years (it’s the best). But they don’t make it anymore. So here are some options for replacement.
