Wild Hibiscus Prosecco Cocktails

We’re raising our glasses and getting ready to escort 2012 out and 2013 in! Are you throwing a party? Do you need some last minute simple yet chic ideas? We can help. We’re having a few friends over tomorrow night to celebrate and we’ll have an array of simple yet satisfying appetizers and sweets out to nosh on throughout the night. Simple is always my motto and helps keep me sane while entertaining.

Starting with our table, we’re keeping it sleek with a black/white table scape. I’ve created some fun DIY chalkboard painted wine bottles that I’m using as vases filled with white flowers that I picked up at Sam’s Club (definitely luxe for less!) I’ll randomly place a few square glass votives on the table for a little sparkle and pizazz. Now the important stuff. It’s not a party without food and drinks. While I was there I picked up a few bottles of my favorite bubbly beverage – Prosecco. Some cheese and crackers to go along with salami I already have. Now some sweet stuff. Can’t leave without my favorite cream puffs on the planet. Not a chance. They’re completely addictive and guaranteed that you can’t pop just one into your mouth. Go ahead, try. And to balance everything out fresh fruit, because I can always use balance.

What are we going to do with our Prosecco? Besides sipping it straight up I like to make a few cocktails with it. Wild Hibiscus Prosecco Cocktails anyone? I happened to have had a jar of wild hibiscus flowers in syrup at home. They’re not only beautiful they’re EDIBLE (there’s 11 of those flowers in each jar in case you’re wondering). They make a creative cocktail that will definitely strike up a conversation. Need another option? Plop a few fresh berries into each glass and then fill with Prosecco. Simple and chic, just how we like it.

Wishing you a very Happy New Year friends! Cheers!

Baci!
