Valentine’s Cocktail

For Valentine’s Day we decided to sip Champagne Cocktails.  Champagne is not limited to special occasions in our household, think Wednesday evenings just because, so I decided to dress it up for an actual occasion.  I found the perfect recipe for Valentine’s – Martha Stewart’s Blood Orange Champagne Cocktails – red and bubbly.

Imagine it looking just like this!

While Martha’s recipe is more of a mimosa (bubbles and juice only) I decided to follow the classic Champagne cocktail approach and added vodka to each glass.  And let’s just say that I’m a little worse for the wear today that I might have otherwise been from an evening of sipping mimosas.

My highly technical recipe:

  • A splash of fresh squeezed orange juice,
  • A splash of vodka,
  • Top with Champagne,
  • Repeat as needed.
