A Christmas Cocktail


Our neighborhood Belle Haven Women's Club cookbook has just come out and I have 5 recipes. In fact, the first three recipes in the book are mine. If the truth be told, I hate to cook, and wisely submitted three cocktail recipes and two hors d'oeuvres. I thought you might like to try one of my recipes that is wonderful for the holidays-The Blood Orange Champagne Cocktail.

1 ounce cognac
Juice from 1/2 fresh blood orange
1 dash Angostura bitters
3 ounces champagne

Combine cognac, juice,and bitters in a chilled champagne glass. Top with champagne and serve with a blood orange twist.

The beautiful color makes it perfect for a Christmas aperitif or Christmas brunch.
