Happy New Year! Time flies and I can’t believe that it’s already January 1st. Last year was one of my favorites in a long time. My husband and I traveled to so many amazing places we lost count, spent lots of time with family and friends and sampled some fabulous foods along the way. I’m grateful we’ve had so many amazing opportunities and such supportive people around us.
Right now we’re spending our last days in the states with family and really looking forward to an exciting new year ahead. To kick off the new year, we’re drinking these delicious cocktails. Since we’re in Florida, we’re making the most of the abundant citrus down here and whats new years day without a little bit of bubbly?
Florida Orange & Thyme Cocktails
- 4 tbsp freshly squeezed orange juice
- 2 tbsp Cointreau
- 3/4 cup of Prosecco
- 2 sprigs of thyme
- fine sugar to rim glasses (optional)
In a small jug measure out the orange juice, Cointreau and Prosecco. Dip the very tip of the rim of a champagne glass in the mixture and then into a small bowl of fine sugar. Rub the thyme between your fingers and place into the glass. Pour in the mixture and enjoy.
These cocktails look so classic and beautiful.
