The competition is up & the prize will be a copy of Quickies: Morning, Noon and Night Cookbook! This is Denise first cookbook & she had written it “with the aim of providing inspiration to anyone who's ever felt too tired or too uninspired to cook, or who has the pizza delivery number on speed dial.”
Timing has never been better, as I’ve just received a bottle of Moet & Chandon Champagne from an old friend of mine. Taking an Oriental approach to a Champagne Cocktail, I mixed it with my beloved Choya Umeshu, a Japanese Fruit Liqueur & added a tinge of Apple Cidar. Can you see the gold sparkle on the rim of the glass? I’ve used Peppermint Tea to add a minty touch & a rustic charm to the drink.
10ml Apple Cidar
1 Ume (from the Choya bottle)
Top with Champagne
Add Peppermint Tea to rim
* For those who prefer to have less alcoholic content, substitute Champagne with Sprite
It was no easy feat though as besides creating the cocktail, I’ll have to come up with a fancy, sexy name too. Since this is my 1st challenge making a cocktail, I decided to name it after my blog, “Luxury Haven”, a seductive cocktail specially created for the sophisticated ladies! And, what's better than getting a celebrity to add some gold dust to the Cocktail Challenge & to the newly-launched "Luxury Haven"?
I'm submitting this special drink to Quickies: Morning, Noon & Night Cooking Challenge, jointly hosted by Lazaro Cooks & Quickies on the Dinner Table. Thank you again, for the wonderful opportunity! Hop over to these two fantastic sites now & take a look at other great entries :)
