How are your holiday preparations coming along? Since we were out of town so much the past two weeks with Piglet sports (Bucket List Adventure), we feel like we are still playing catch up. We finally finished putting up the Christmas decorations last night. (We know… this is way behind schedule for the Blind Pig Household.) However, Craig got the outside lights up and looking festive and Rhonda finally finished the inside. Now we can concentrate on entertaining, baking and shopping. Gish!
This week we have a delicious little cocktail just right for spreading holiday cheer. This cocktail is light and refreshing. If you have been around our little blog for very long, you are well aware that Rhonda has an affinity for anything titled spritz — especially if there is a little Prosecco involved. This cocktail is festive without the feeling of weighing you down like a heavier or cocktail or a glass of wine. In fact, Rhonda is having a little soiree with some friends this week and plans on serving it to her friends.
Aperol, cranberry juice cocktail (we used sugar-free), grapefruit juice, Prosecco, a slice of orange, a handful of fresh cranberries and a sprig of fresh rosemary are all you need to create this spectacular cocktail.
Pour the Aperol, cranberry juice and grapefruit juice in a rocks glass filled with ice. Stir together. Top off with Prosecco and garnish with cranberries, orange slice and rosemary sprig.
Try the Holiday Aperol Spritz for your next holiday festivities, and see how your guests like it! Do you have all of your holiday decorations complete? What part of your decorating is your favorite? Let us know. We’d love to hear from you.
