Happy 100th post, Spices and Spatulas!! To celebrate, I thought we’d have a little toast (and by we, I mean myself and my computer, but feel free to break out the bubbly while you read some of my #feelings) with a festive champagne cocktail. It’s taken me well over a year to really get into the blog and post regularly, but I’m ever so glad I did. I’m an avid list-maker, but I tend to get sidetracked, so having at least one aspect of my life where I’m relatively obligated to do things from start to finish and keep up on a regular basis is really wonderful. Much as I hate to admit it, there’s something to be said about setting goals for oneself, even if they’re as simple as “post something twice a week” or “upload pictures right after image editing”. It’s truly a comfort to think that there are (maybe) at least a handful of people out there who are regular readers of my ramblings, and I’m so unbelievably grateful. I hope you all stick around for my next 100 posts!
Okay, I’m sure at this point you’re really ready for a drink, so here we go! It packs quite the punch, I hope you’re ready.
Barbotage (adapted from siroter.com)
– 1/2 ounce cold lemon juice
– 1 ounce cold orange juice
– 1/2 ounce cognac
– 1 tsp. Grand Marnier (or Cointreau, or Triple Sec)
– chilled Brut champagne (mine was $6.99- jealous??)
Pour cognac and Grand Marnier into a champagne flute (or a goblet if you’re me and that’s all you have in your dorm room). Add the orange and lemon juice. Top with champagne. Here’s to you!
