Christmas in a Glass


1 bottle Prosecco, or other sparkling dry white wine, well chilled

1 bottle of cranberry flavored syrup

Pour the Prosecco into glasses. Add a capful of the syrup to each glass of the Prosecco, to taste.

As an alternative...pour a couple of shots of cranberry into a bottle of Prosecco, add a straw and carry on your merry *hic* way!


I love the simplicity of this drink - there is a reason why a kir royale always hits the spot - who needs more than two ingredients in glass?

In a time when it is so easy to get carried away and overcomplicate things, I make a note to stop and turn to Nigella who will always tell me to simplify, simplify, simplify. 


Have a fabulous day!

LOVE Nigella--and at this time of year, her Christmas book sits permanently opened to one recipe or another on my dining room table!
Happy celebrating--hope you're not snowed in?? I hear your area of the country got quite a dumping!

Simple is always best. Something really decadent and naughty about Nigella's recipes ;-)

Good afternoon from Tokyo!

I'm finally catching up on my blog reading and goodness did this catch my eye! I, too, enjoy simply made meals and drinks, and this one sounds delicious. I cannot wait to return home and make this with my family.

Many thanks for sharing your Christmas cheer!

Warmly,
