An Erin Cooks Christmas: Day 2 – Christmas in a Glass

While scouring the internet for creative ideas for my upcoming holiday party this weekend I happened upon a lovely bubbly cocktail that Nigella Lawson has coined “Christmas in a Glass.” The crowd of people coming over to my house on Saturday will be enjoying these scrumptious prosecco based drinks around a roaring TiVo generated fireplace.

After hunting down gingerbread flavored syrup and procurring a generous amount of prosecco I decided that it would be unwise for Chris and I to serve drinks to our guests without trying them first. So we popped the cork and enjoyed our own mini Christmas in a Glass cocktails. The gingerbread syrup gives the prosecco a very nutty flavor and every time you bring the glass to your lips you inhale the scrumptious smell of Christmas cookies. I love how something so simple can turn out so unexpectedly brilliant. Cheers!

God Bless Us, Every One!
