NEW YEAR’S EVE: LET’S SPIKE THE CHAMPAGNE

December 31, 2014

All that champagne tonight is going to make you sleepy. So, add gin! Or vodka! Or St. Germain! YES.

Well, now we just look like boozers… Who cares! IT’S NEW YEAR’S EVE!

Here’s your task for tonight. When your date comes back with a glass of champagne for you, probably during one of five Avicii songs that will be playing all night long, first tell him or her,

“Oh my gawdddddddddddddd, THIS IS OUR SONG!”

Then, proceed to tilt your head back and dance like you’re in a J.Lo music video circa 2000. You know the one. THIS one.

But, next, grab your flask and spike the champagne.

Oh, you didn’t bring a flask? Oh, you’re classy? And classy people don’t bring flasks? Wait, yeah, no… we didn’t bring a flask either… Who brings a flask to parties? Not us. So classless.

To avoid any class-debilitating situations, here’s our recommendation: make yourself a French 75, 76, or 77 tonight! We once made French 75s for Brock’s mom and her girlfriends. Now, THAT was a party. We danced to ABBA.

Oh, and not to mention, French 75s are probably one of our favorite cocktails 😉

Here’s what you need:

French 75
1 oz gin (we prefer Hendrick’s)
1/2 oz lemon juice (freshly squeezed)
1 tsp superfine sugar
5 oz champagne (we chose Chandon)

French 76
1 oz vodka
1/2 oz lemon juice (freshly squeezed)
1 tsp superfine sugar
5 oz champagne

French 77
1 oz St. Germain
1/4 oz lemon juice (freshly squeezed)
5-6 oz champagne

And if you’re extra classy, garnish with a lemon twist (insert sassy pink girl emoji).
