Bon Weekend, Plus Couture Cocktails

Fashion

The first weekend of 2013 has arrived.  I hope your year is off to a great start!


 
 
We will be doing a little more celebrating of Christmas. Several inches of snow kept us from visiting family last week. Unfortunately, we didn’t see more than an inch of snow here.  I always love a white Christmas.   However, soon, I will be counting down the weeks until springtime.  Until then, just a little would be nice….

Couture Cocktails
 

 

Coconut Vanilla Bellini’s
 
1 bottle of prosecco
16 ounces of coconut juice blend or coconut pureed nectar

For the sugared rims:

1/4 cup white sanding sugar
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 vanilla bean
 
To prepare the sugared rims, combine sanding sugar, granulated sugar, the scraped seeds of the vanilla bean and the vanilla bean pod in a large bowl and mix. You can do this a few days ahead of time if desired.
Coat the rims of 8 champagne flutes in something sticky and sweet, such as leftover frosting or marshmallow fluff.
To make the cocktails, pour 2 ounces of the coconut juice blend or puree into the bottom of the flute. Fill the remaining space with prosecco and stir with a long spoon to mix.
Serve immediately.  Cheers!
 
 
Wishing you a fabulous weekend!  xoxo, B
