I can’t believe Christmas is around the corner… and before we know it, it’ll be time to ring in the New Year! For the past ten years or so, we’ve done our New Year’s Eve celebrations at home; keeping things low key with pizza and the New Year’s countdown on TV. This year, though, I wanted to change things up a bit.
Instead of toasting with regular champagne I added a fruity twist and brightened things up with Mike’s Hard Lemonade. Truth be told, I do not like champagne at all, so the midnight toast never really appealed to me because it was followed by a sip of something I didn’t enjoy the taste of. This year, though, I’ll be sipping strawberry lemonade champagne so I’ll happily be toasting with my glass of pink bubbly in hand. What I love most about this drink is that it’s super simple but adds a lot of happiness (and deliciousness) to the occasion. So, if champagne isn’t your drink of choice… I’ve got a simple fix and easy recipe you can use to ring in the New Year just right!
To make strawberry lemonade champagne, just fill your flute two thirds full with Mike’s Hard Strawberry Lemonade and top your glass off with the champagne. You can even add some lemon zest or muddled strawberry at the bottom of your glass if you’d like to. The strawberry lemonade flavor is my favorite Mike’s Hard Lemonade, but you can use the other flavors if you prefer.
Mike’s Hard Lemonade can brighten any occasion this holiday season, from holiday parties to that late-night wrapping session you are bound to have on Christmas Eve. However you celebrate, I hope you all have a festive rest of your holiday season and a fantastic start to your New Year!
