As it was new years eve 2016 and i received some bottles of fizz for Christmas. I felt it was my duty to try some Champagne cocktails.
First i tried was plain old fizz
Then added some Chambord (Raspberry liqueur)
Champagne, Cointreau, orange juice
This was a variation on a gorgeous cocktail i had on holiday in Zakynthos. Called a Kalamaki Beach. The only ingredient missing was a bit of grenadine for a bit of colour.
Champagne, Cranberry juice and Cointreau
Finally a Champagne, Peach Snapps and lemonade cocktail.
Just a note, i did add some diet lemonade to some of the above aswell, this was to try and reduce some syns to try and keep my weightloss slightly on track. I feel asleep on the sofa at 11.30pm so not sure how successful that idea was!
Champagne is 5 syns for a standard glass and spirits are around 5 syns for a 35ml measure, so this soon adds up. Nevermind all the nibbles that a reduction in willpower results in. I must say i thoroughly enjoyed all of them though.
Cheers and happy new year x
