2019! I can’t believe how fast time flies, can you? Just yesterday it was Christmas and now...
La Burgondie Brut Reserve

I’m very excited for the new year! I have some new goals, and I intend on following through on as many of them as I can. For one, I’ll cooking a cocktailing a ton more this year. I’m all about doing, because by doing you LEARN. So, anyone ready to learn a new drink recipe?

I have the BEST NYE cocktail for you! This is my FRENCHIE 75 - a take on the classic French 75, but pink. That is not code for too sweet, FYI. They say this drink dates all the way back to 1920’s - an era I love. I simply added a raspberry-thyme simple syrup to make it extra beautiful with a subtle boost of fruity flavor.
