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.
