Sweet Libations | New Year's Eve

Posted on December 30, 2013 by LISA KUNIZAKI | 0 Comments

Here are just a few simple, but elegant cocktail choices for this holiday season. I chose two tea inspired cocktails and the rest use just the right amount of sweet to ring in the new year.

Who doesn't love something bubbly for the holidays? I know I do. 

This recipe comes from the good people at Mason Shaker

Here's a recipe for the Puerh Old Fashioned via Autumn Giles of Serious Eats. Click here for the recipe.


A Holiday Apple & Sage Iced Tea Cocktail from our friends over at Takeya. Who doesn't love chartruse? Click here for the recipe. 

Frozen Cranberry Skewers keep the champagne cold and the cranberries give the drink a festive look. I would sprinkle a little Amber Sugar on the frozen cranberries to give it that extra special something. Photo and recipe idea from Occasions.

Champagne with sugar rimmed glasses. Easy and glamorous. I like to use our Rainbow Sugar for an extra festive, fun look.  

Photo from The Hostess with the Mostess. The original recipe calls for rock candy swizzle sticks, but you can use our Diamond Sugar Stirrers which are made of pure sugar cane and nothing else). They are a quick and easy way to fancy up your champagne on New Year's Eve. Diamond Sugar Stirrers come in brown and white.

And lastly, a recipe from one of our FaceBook friends, Pete Gee. He writes, "This is the Royal Navy version. Don't know how much it differs from the standard recipe: Wine glass, sugar cube in bottom. Two drops Angostura Bitters on cube. Add a shot or two of cheap brandy. Top up with cheap sparkling wine. Then sit back and count how many people drink before they start slurring their words."

Thanks Pete for this simple (and I'm sure fun) recipe. You can use our Mini Cubes or our Sucre Pierre (shown above).

Wishing you all a very Happy New Year's Day!
