So, as you know, I’m not shy about my love of a good cocktail.  {Cough!}  I could stand to be a little more shy. {Cough!}  But I don’t love champagne.  I don’t know what it is, maybe too dry?  I’m just not sure, it’s not my favorite.  Which I don’t feel good about (#drinkerproblems), because so many of my friends, like Cathy and Dorothy, enjoy a good glass of champagne.  And since one of the best things about enjoying a cocktail is when you enjoy it with a friend, I decided I needed to get on board.

So, I was in the middle of this photo shoot for that cute Champagne Bottle Printable you see in the background (coming soon!) when I decided that I couldn’t let a glass of poured champagne go to waste (#cheapo).  So I decided to throw some more alcohol in there (#duh).  I tried it with just Amaretto, but it was too bitter.  I tried it with some grenadine too, and that wasn’t right either.

And then!

And then I tried it with equal parts Cointreau (an orange liqueur) and Amaretto, and it was perfection!  Like a glass of champagne that I didn’t just think was drinkable, I thought I could drink like five of!  You guys are going to love it!  It’s super fast to throw together, and then you throw a little cherry in the bottom and it makes for a beautiful cocktail!
