Unfortunately, I was majorly under the weather this New Year’s Eve. What is this sticky flu-cold that everyone has right now? So gross. Nonetheless, we decided to give the dawn of the apocalypse our best.
Giada’s Lemon Raspberry Fizz
1 cup Champagne or sparkling water
1/4 cup limoncello liqueur
2 tablespoons fresh raspberries or frozen raspberries, thawed
In a small pitcher, combine the Champagne and limoncello. Place a spoonful of crushed ice into each of 2 Champagne glasses and top with raspberries. Pour the Champagne mixture over the ice and raspberries. Serve immediately.
I’m not really a fan of doctoring up my wines, but this was a festive and fun way of making an otherwise snotty night, special. To make it even more special, we pulled this sparkling from the wedding vault. A perfect gift from the queen of sparkle herself, Big Deb!
