I tend to enjoy a more sedate celebration, usually with a Champagne Cocktail in hand. If you’ve never had one, here’s a quickie (I’m fixated on fireworks, again). For those of you who want to whoop it up with a crowd, you’ll find a recipe for a traditional Champagne Punch and another for a Non-Alcoholic Spiced Apple Punch below this post. However you celebrate - even if you’re sawing logs or reading a book by the fire - have a safe, happy, and contented New Year’s Eve!
1 sugar cube
5 or 6 drops aromatic bitters, or to taste
Enough Courvoisier to cover sugar cube
Champagne (or any sparkling wine), chilled
