Tuesday Tipple

So today, we're having a

Champagne Cobbler

3/4 ounce maraschino
3/4 ounce triple sec
2tsp lemon juice
1 peach half, diced
2 maraschino cherries
2 grapes
sparkling wine, or champers to top up

Fill the cocktail glass one-third full with crushed ice. Mix the maraschino, triple sec, and lemon juice together in the cocktail glass. Add the fruit to the glass, top up with sparkling wine, and serve with a spoon.

Now I admit, this drink takes a steady hand (something even I struggle with espeically recently), however it's worth it.

And now for something completely different, a spot of mischief for your enjoyment....

Way too much fruit. Feels too healthy to be enjoyed. Can I swap the fruit for chocolate?

Oh Steve! Chocolate???

Sounds good to me. I'm sure Saggy could supply some chocolate to nibble inbetween sips. Although I prefer to concentrate exclusively on drinking - don't do eating and drinking at the same time!!

Not to be too much trouble, but would you mind holding the Maraschino, Triple Sec, lemon juice, and cherries; filling my glass with the sparkling wine; and serving the peach halves and grapes on the side? No need to dirty another spoon that way, and someone else can have double servings of all that was left out of my drink. Waste not want not! I'm all about ecology and saving the planet, doncha know.

hello you lot, I do SINcerely apologise - I know you all don't like fruit in your drinks. I think I have quake brain or something. OK, here's what we will do...I'll scoff the fruit while I mix you another batch of bubbles sans anything-else?

Excellent. I prefer my champagne naked.

The Sagittarian said...

Louciao - indeed, most things are better naked...
