Happy Hour: Champagne Cocktails

Dec 18, 2020

Champagne is for celebrating.  2020 didn’t give us a ton to celebrate.  But with 2021 and the promise of vaccine-driven herd-immunity just around the corner, perhaps we should be celebrating the light at the end of a very dark tunnel?

Sparkling cocktails are the easiest thing to make for a group.  A couple of bottles of decent-quality Prosecco, Cava or Champagne, the mixers of you choosing laid out, and everyone can make their own drinks.  But even if it’s just you and your immediate family, sparkling cocktails can still be a lot of fun.

This Elderflower Grapefruit Mimosa with sprigs of thyme from Fed + Fit is perfect for winter.  I love the mix of citrus and herbal notes.  Looking for other sparkling cocktails?  Esquire has a good list of bubbly beverages.

We’re celebrating Christmas a couple of days late, but we’ve decided that we’re dressing up.  Because why not?  2020 has taken a lot from us, and I’m not going to let it take the only thing I love about Christmas — festive attire.

I wanted something that was comfortable and chic.  This & Other Stories Ribbed Sweetheart Neck Dress is a great option.  Prefer a v-neck?  Try this dress from Aqua.  I also love the drama of this off-the-shoulder Line & Dot dress.  Plus-size?  Give this wide-neck sweater dress a look.

    Yay! Love that you’re dressing up for belated Christmas. Perfect way to ensure it’s still festive. Christmas is really whatever day you make it, so you also get to enjoy a bonus quiet day on the 25th before the real festivities. Happy holidays everyone!

    Me: “Do I need a new dress for the holiday Zoom calls?”
    (Sale code makes Eloquii dress $25)
    Me: “Guess that answers my question. New dress it is!”

    A fun way to add to your sparkling drink station is to make a kid friendly version. Mixers are sprite, sparkling juice, and lemonade. My kids love to mix “fancy drinks” at holidays

    Champagne cocktails are my fav! I’ve been drinking a lot of champagne apple cider mimosas – just mix apple cider and champagne! Easy and season appropriate

Too Many Tabs: April 19, 2024

This week, I fell mindlessly into my phone more than I think I ever have. My screen time went from 3.5 hours per day to 5 hours per day. But the increased eye strain did lead to some good finds. Just going to leave this right here.  (I really need to work on “Didn’t make […]

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.
