KINKY Bubbles & the new year

Are you ready for 2014?  I am looking forward to it, hopefully it will be better than 2013 was!  It’s hard to believe that one year ago, I thought 2013 was going to be my lucky year…..

maybe it was, and I just don’t realize it yet…..we shall see.  I think my favorite part of 2013 has to be my new camera…..

My lighting is still not quite right, but I am having so much fun playing with it and creating those blurry backgrounds!  Yes, I was excited that the princess came back from Belgium…..but then she left again for college.  I am super excited that my son bought his first house, but I guess I see those as their milestones and not mine.  This here blog is my domain, and I am hoping to take it to the next level in 2014!!

I know, I know, you just want a cocktail recipe for New Year’s Eve.  I bought this KINKY Liqueur a few months ago, and had no clue what I wanted to do with.  I just loved the name and thought it would make a fun cocktail cake!! ;)

What is KINKY Liqueur you ask?  Well the label says: “A naughty fusion of super premium vodka distilled 5 times with succulent mango, blood orange liqueur and passion fruit.”  Works for me!

I went to the KINKY website to see what their suggestions were, and they were basically the same ideas that I had!  KINKY Martini, that’s already been done.  KINKY something with Prosecco, well they had two options.  KINKY Italian has liqueur, limoncello, and prosecco, or the KINKY Bubbles was liqueur with champagne…..let’s go ahead and tweak the KINKY Bubbles!

I dropped a maraschino cherry into a champagne flute because I thought it would look cool…..

I measured out 2 ounces of KINKY Liqueur…..

and poured it into the glass.  Then I filled the glass with Prosecco…..

I am not a big fan of champagne, so I chose Cupcake Prosecco for the bubbly component.  It looks so pretty…..

I just love the color.  This cocktail would be perfect for Valentine’s Day with a strawberry garnish!  Yes, I am getting ahead of myself here. :)

Do you know the proper way to open a bottle of champagne or prosecco?  If you think the correct answer is shaking it and popping the cork across the room, the answer is NO!  Carefully twist the wire on the metal “cage” that surrounds the cork and remove it…..

I do not know if cage is the proper term, but that’s what it looks like to me.  Okay, now cover the cork with a towel and carefully remove the cork by slightly twisting it back and forth and pulling upwards until it pops!

No one looses an eye, and you don’t waste any bubbly. :)

Enjoy!

    So pretty!! And I have never shaken a bottle of champagne and only open them this way for mimosas so I guess I learned from the best over the years! ;)
    Cheers to you and Happy New Year! Will have to make this to ring in 2014 because it’s going to be a GREAT year! (Pinning, of course). xoxo

    You crack me up Miss Kinky Boots… your liquor sounds divine. Does it make you sing show tunes too? Congrats to your kids… they sound like they are doing well. I’m still trying to get mine through high school. Maybe I need a kinky cocktail?
