2017 is almost over – what a year it’s been! R+R launched On January 1st, 2017 so we’re celebrating our birthday this new year with some Champagne Moscow Mules! And Funfetti Cupcakes. Naturally. These Champagne Moscow Mules are a refreshing twist on the classic AND they’re perfect for New Years!!
This New Year’s Moscow Mule is the perfect cocktail for your new year’s bash that everyone will love! Be sure to use a sweeter champagne (I used Martini De Rossi Spumante) or prosecco for this drink so you have the right balance of sweet and sour. I also used Domaine Canton (a ginger liqueur) for mine, but a homemade ginger simple syrup works well also.
Champagne Moscow Mule
- 1 oz Domaine Canton or Ginger Liqueur
- 1 oz Vodka
- 1/2 small lime
- 1/2 cup ice
- 6 oz Champagne or Prosecco
In a shaker, muddle the lime with the ginger liqueur and vodka.
Add Ice and shake.
Pour into a champagne glass or flute.
Top off the mixture with champagne.
Garnish with a lime and some mint and serve.
R+R TURNS 1!!
Here’s to a bright New Year, and a fond farewell to the old; here’s to the things that are yet to come, and to the memories that we hold.
We’re having a huge celebration on New Year’s this year because R+R is finally turning 1!! I can’t believe how far this blog has come in the past year and I can’t wait to keep coming up with delicious recipes, mouthwatering photos, and much much more in the next year!! More home and entertaining posts, perhaps? You’ll have to tune in and see!! We’ll be starting January off with a slew of healthy recipes (and cozy and amazing recipes!)!! But first, cake. And champagne. Because, it’s a party, duh!
