Well I may have stumbled upon this drink too late to celebrate the new year, but I'd just as happily toast to Tuesday, or Wednesday, or... Well, I think you get the picture. ;)

This looks fantastic , Shannon! Nice that you can choose to add the sparkling wine or not. I'll be keeping it in mind this winter when I need something alcohol-free and fun!
