Pink Drink for Sunday

Here's a lovely libation we created for the lovely Loni, a generous donor to our Feeding America fundraising campaign! It's perfect for Sunday brunch (or any other day of the week!)

Sweet Pink Bubbles

Sweet Pink Bubbles (created for Loni)

2 dashes cherry bitters
Chilled pink sparkling wine
A pink cherry (red is okay, too)

Combine all ingredients in a champagne flute and stir gently.

Thank you so much, Loni!

In other news, our first attempt at doing a live video on YouTube fell apart when we realized that we had to use the webcam in our computer. No bar shots? No mixing drinks? No thank you! We did our video on Facebook instead and it was a lot of fun. I especially enjoyed the comment that said that we're "destroying tiki" and that young people don't care about this stuff. Where would anyone get the idea that we're trying to appeal to young people?! :D We make drinks, so that lets out anyone under 21, plus I'm pretty sure anyone under the age of 35 has their own shows to watch, starring people young enough to be our children. But I'm glad he watched - thanks for the view!

More live video coming soon and, if you have an idea for a live broadcast, let us know!


  1. Oh dear, that comment is nonsense! This millenial highly enjoyed the broadcast and all your posts. This may be the cold weather talking, but would love to see a spring garden party or summer barbecue live!

    1. Thanks! That's a great idea! Definitely when the weather warms up, although Paul is not averse to grilling in the snow. ;)

  2. Good grief! You give tiki a regular dose of vitamin velveteen, exactly what it needs! Ridiculous.

    1. Thanks! We made a Trader Vic's drink - it doesn't get more tiki, right? ;)
