great expectations

28 Oct

This is a BIG weekend for me. My most favorite of the whole year in fact. It has been Birthday Week ALL week, and now, today, marks the beginning of Birthday Weekend.

Filled with pumpkin patches, decorating, witch hats, candy and spooky champagne beverages, I’ve got it jammed packed with Birthday and Halloween festivities.


To help make your weekend just a bit more festivus, try this fantastic champagne cocktail:

Vampire Kiss 


Pomegranate Juice

Bloody rim (corn syrup and red food coloring)

Mix light corn syrup and red food coloring with a tooth pick until it is completely deep red. Pour into a shallow dish. Dip the rim of the glass in lightly. Let it drip down the sides. If you prefer, drizzle with a spoon on the inside of the glass to avoid a sticky outer rim. Pour a bit of pomegranate juice into the bottom of the glass. Top with chilled champagne.

Serve and enjoy!

for more fun...try a Pina Goulada
