What a year we’ve had, Discover readers! After the rush of the holiday shopping madness and likely hundreds of miles logged traveling to our friends’ and relatives’ homes during the holiday season, we here at Discover think that we all could use a refreshing, flavorful and memorable New Year’s Eve cocktail.
Here’s four to whet your palate and inspire the most hopeful of toasts to ring in 2017!
Cocktail: Pomegranate Rosemary Sparkling Cocktail
Why We Love It: The drink looks fancy, but we promise that it’s easy to put together, and we love how it celebrates the fruits of the season. Even the most challenged mixologist can make this sparkling cocktail and impress family and friends! (Did we have you at easy?)
Cocktail: Blood Orange Champagne Cocktail
Why We Love It: What’s not to love about the season’s most sought-after citrus? After a busy season of shopping, the elections, and a mixed bag of a year (looking at you, 2016), there’s just something so refreshing and life-affirming about this scene-stealing drink.
Cocktail: Strawberry Champagne Float
Why We Love It: It’s champagne that doubles as dessert. You might even make this kid-friendly by substituting the champagne with sparkling apple juice—go ahead and try it, and let us know if it’s a hit with the kids!
Cocktail: Strawberry Guava Spritzer
Why We Love It: Most of us are stuck in the cold this winter, so why not bring a little bit of that Caribbean breeze to your New Year’s Eve party with this cocktail? Trust us—this sweet and bubbly spritzer is sure to have your guest in awe; it’s easy to make and only requires four ingredients!
Cheers to you and HAPPY NEW YEAR!
