New Year's Champagne Cocktail: The Wintergreen
Here's another New Year's Eve Champagne cocktail. Want more? Drink up!
It's the frostiness in mint that reminds me of winter. I love how it leaves an icy trail as it goes down. And to me, nothing is more dead-of-winter than New Year's Eve: Perhaps because we girls are relegated to little dresses in even smaller temperatures. Recall the season of the snowmen as you celebrate around a toasty fire with this wintergreen cocktail. Champagne is mixed with sweet mint syrup and crème de menthe, and crowned with a mint-green wreath of mint sugar. Cool.
