1 sugar cube

Angostura bitters


Lemon or orange twist, for garnish

1 1/2 ounces orange juice

1 ounce apricot brandy

3 ounces champagne

Orange peel, for garnish

The SF Chron had an article on champagne cocktails a few weeks ago. I served the Pomegranate Fizz at a party and it went over very well. A French 75 with cognac is also really good but it'll kick you harder than you imagined!

Pomagranate Fizz

1/2 oz pomagranate juice

1/2 oz orange liquor

fill the glass with champagne and stir (gently!)

I made Ruby Sippers... bubbly with cranberry syrup. Mmm. And so pretty.

1 1/2 cups cranberries, fresh or frozen, plus extra for garnish

1 cup cranberry juice cocktail

1/2 cup sugar

Juice and grated rind of one orange, plus wedges (optional)

1 750 ml. bottle sparkling white wine

Red sugar (optional)

Food-process or finely chop the cranberries. Simmer with juices, orange rind and sugar about 10 min, med, until syrupy. Strain and let cool. (Don't chill; it will jell.)

Rub the rims of champagne flutes with orange wedge and dip in red sugar. Pour 1-2 T. into flute, top with sparkling wine, and garnish with a cranberry.
