Happy 2013 everyone!
We'll be staying home and doing what we usually do on New Year's Day: building puzzles in our pajamas and sharing snacks and cocktails. This year, this ginger champagne cocktail from Martha Stewart is on our to-do list. Doesn't it sound delicious? How will you be celebrating the first day of the new year?
2 teaspoons of peeled, finely grated ginger
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup of water
1 bottle of Prosecco or Champagne
In a small saucepan, boil the ginger, sugar and 1/4 cup of water until syrupy (or for 2 minutes). Pour contents through a sieve over a small bowl. Discard solids.
Pour 1 tablespoon of syrup into a glass and fill with champagne. Gently stir then serve. Cheers!
