Happy New Year & A Cocktail

Happy New Year! Last night was spent with a small group of friends, a pitcher of cocktails and assorted snacks. There was good conversation, a lot of laughs and a couple of dicey shooters, which shall remain unnamed in an effort to keep things PC.

The pitcher of cocktails was this....a mixture which I had scrawled on a napkin from somewhere, which I have no name for. Let's just call it what it is (for me anyways)....a Screaming Hangover. Of course, if one were to consume just one or two, like a normal person, it would probably be okay. Nonetheless, it's very tasty!

1/4 oz vodka
3/4 oz Chambord
1 oz cranberry raspberry juice
3 oz sparkling wine

In a martini shaker, shake vodka, chambord & raspberry juice until frothy. Pour, over ice, in to glass. Top with sparkling wine and garnish with frozen raspberries. Makes 1 drink.

If I make it for a group, I scale up the recipe, mix the first three ingredients in a pitcher and add ice and the sparkling wine just before serving.
