Champagne Ginger Cocktail

Champagne Ginger Cocktail

Tried and loved from the Martha Stewart website, here’s my 2010 New Year’s Eve cocktail of choice. Champagne and ginger, what’s not inspiring about that? Happy new year! -Kristin Martha Stewart’s Champagne Sparkler Thanks to Martha herself for the wonderful recipe! Ingredients • 2 teaspoons finely grated peeled fresh ginger • 1/2 cup sugar • 1 bottle (750 ml) dry sparkling wine (Cava, Prosecco, Champagne) Directions • Set a fine-mesh sieve over a small bowl; set aside. In a small saucepan, boil ginger, sugar, and 1/4 cup water until syrupy, about 2 minutes. Pour through sieve into bowl, discarding solids. (To store syrup, refrigerate in an airtight container, up to 1 week.) • Pour 1 tablespoon syrup into each of 8 tall glasses. Top with sparkling wine, and gently stir. *Kristin’s finishing touch, which you’ll well deserve if you’re been THINK-ing all day like we have: Add crushed candied ginger on the rim of the glass, and a few chopped cubes of candied ginger in the bottom of the glass.  If I’m feeling fancy, I might also add a mint leaf as garnish.* Photo by www.sweetpeasandsaffron.com
