We made it – Merry Christmas! Everyone could use a cocktail this time of year! Are you ready to put your feet up and enjoy one?
I heard someone joke just the other day that December is ‘alcoholism month.’ With all of parties, ceremony, and tradition – not to mention the sheer amount of time with friends and family in the darkness of Winter – it’s no wonder we want to reach for a drink!
That said, it’s also the time of year when we reflect and celebrate those who make our lives rich. For us, at Foodology Geek this brings to mind one of our biggest fans – my old college buddy Bruce!
Bruce is the guy who is always there with commentary, feedback, kudos, and ideas. WE LOVE THIS!
Bruce is a warm, friendly and generous person with a perfectly wicked sense of humor! The best type of friend, am I right? Not to mention, he is also an ACE at baking. I aspire to make pies like Bruce!* As a THANK YOU to him, we thought we’d feature one of his ideas.
We give you Bruce’s Favorite Holiday Champagne Cocktail!
This delicious gem is super easy to prepare. Beware, they do go down almost a little too easily! You may forget they are more than just champagne! Make one for your crazy aunt and let the stories fly!
Seriously – we hope that you enjoy a wonderful holiday season with people – like Bruce – who make your life rich. As I’ve said before, they may be a crazy bunch – but take the time to appreciate them as – they are YOUR unique crazy bunch.
