I’m almost ready for New Years Eve which is my favorite occasion to host since its the only time there is no limit to the amount of sparkle and glitter you can/should use. No New years Eve gathering is complete without a little bubbly, so I decided to try this Blackberry Thyme Champagne Cocktail recipe from Style Me Pretty to serve to my guests. I haven’t tried it but seems there is no way it could be bad. I’m using prosecco and feel it’s more commonly used, but I plan on making the flavored syrup earlier in the day and placing out with all the ingredients including some frozen blackberries as garnish and to help keep drinks cold. Generally I set up a bar section for gatherings that are self service with one or two pre-made cocktails, as well as beer and wine. If things need to be mixed or combined I like to have a little display picture that makes it easy for each guest to help themselves. If this a cocktail you would like to use for any of your parties here is a free printable that labels the drink and shows your guest what to add. There are two sizes of 4×6 or 5×7 so you can cut and place in a frame you have already. More details to come of our get together I’m planning in case you need some inspiration.
