Wonderful easy recipe for the holidays! To ensure the sugar crusted on the rim I made these the evening before with red and white sugar crystal's and let them "sit up"! Preparing ahead of time allowed the sugar to last through more than one refill of champagne! Beautiful festive fun and turned an ordinary glass of champagne into a work of art. Guests definitely felt special when sipping these! Read More

I gave my sister in law the task of making the Christmas brunch cocktail and she came in with this little gem! Oh my it was so good that 3 of us drank the whole pitcher ourselves. Oh and don't skip the sugar rimmed glass it gave it the right festive touch. Read More

OH HOLY COW!!! These were outstanding!! I served these New Years eve and they blew the 50.00 bottle of Gruet Champagne out of the water! I used Patron Citronage and Turbinado sugar! There were requests for these for brunch!! Alas I was out of champagne... will definitely make again! This recipe is a keeper!! Read More

Made this recipe for our Christmas brunch. We have a big family so I recalculated the recipe for 36 servings and made it in my 3-gallon drink dispenser. I rimmed the glasses with red and green sanding sugar (like you use for Christmas cookies) and put one marachino cherry in the bottom of each glass before serving. It was delicious! Be careful with it since it goes down so easily! Thanks for the great recipe! Read More
