Tonight’s cocktail is an elderflower liqueur and sparkling wine treat.
My husband does, in fact, have at least one elderberry bush in our yard. His only interest in gardening is the production of edible berries! I’ll be honest and admit that I’m not sure that, if I harvest its flowers, it will still produce his berries.
If I write about divorce come late summer, this may be the instigator.
A very near second is the simplicity of throwing in a few berries—I’ve used both blueberries (tonight) and cranberries (a Christmas party)—which result in a fancy looking beverage with a minuscule amount of effort.
I’m a big fan of zero effort.
I’m using dry cava because I traveled to Spain recently. Specifically, we visited El Pla del Penedès, and that’s where the best cava is born if my host is to be believed. And my experience suggests that she should be believed!
All of my best wishes for a healthy, happy, and prosperous 2018 to everyone reading.
