First up was the "Champagne" cocktail for the designated driver:


  • Place a sugar cube in a champagne flute
  • Add 1-2 dashs Angostura Bitters onto the sugar cube; let the bitters penetrate the sugar cube until the color of the sugar cube changes
  • Fill with 4-6 oz. of non-alcoholic sparkling wine
  • Garnish with a lemon twist

Marilyn Monroe was more than a Hollywood star. She's also a great drink:


  • Put 1/2 oz. of apple brandy in a champagne flute
  • Add a splash of grenadine (it is important that the grenadine is added after the apple brandy)
  • Top the glass with 4-6 oz. of extra dry sparkling wine or champagne

And a classic cocktail is the Kir Royale:


  • Rub the rim of a champagne flute with a lemon twist and drop the twist into the glass
  • Add 1 oz. mathilde framboise liqueur
  • Top with 4-6 oz Blac de Blancs sparkling wine or champagne
  • Garnish with a frozen Grand Marnier Raspberry ( to make a Grand Marnier Raspberry, freeze raspberries for two hours, sprinkle with one teaspoon Grand Marnier, put raspberries back in the freezer overnight or at least for several hours)
