I hope y'all had a wonderful holiday season! I intended for this post to go up yesterday but we had the laziest day at our house filled with pjs and movies, it just didn't happen.
I released two new products late last year - the State Flowers of the South and Cocktails Desk Calendars. Every month I will post a new free download for you to go with these calendars, a desktop and wallpaper for iPhone calendar. I'll also post the recipe of the cocktail of the month. The Cocktail Calendar features the recipe printed on the back.
This month's cocktail is the MIMOSA. It seemed fitting for January after New Year's celebrations.
2 ounces of champagne or sparkling wine
2 ounces of orange juice
1/2 ounce of Triple Sec
Garnish with fresh orange peel
Pour champagne into a champagne flute.
Add Triple Sec and orange juice and garnish.
Pour one bottle of chilled champagne into a serving pitcher.
Add 3 cups orange juice and 3/4 cup Tripe Sec.
Set garnishes out to add when served.
The State Flower of the Month belongs to Georgia and it's the Cherokee Rose. It's such a pretty flower and the white reminded me of snow in winter, something we rarely see in Louisiana. Fingers crossed for this year.
I hope y'all will enjoy these monthly posts, they sure are fun to do.
