Vanilla Sugar Plum Cocktail Recipe
- ¼ of a fresh plum
- ½ ounce vanilla simple syrup
- champagne to top
- sugar for the rim
- thin plum slice for garnish (frozen for 30 mins so it floats)
Dip the rim of the glass into a sugar/water solution and then into the sugar for a sugary rim. Prepare the vanilla simple syrup and transfer to a cocktail shaker with the plum chunk. Crush the plum into the syrup using a muddler. Use a mini fine mesh strainer to strain the mixture into your cocktail glass. Top with champagne and the frozen plum slice.
Champagne Jello Shots Recipe
- a 3 oz box of jello
- 1 cup chilled champagne
- 1 cup boiling water
- Fresh strawberries (optional)
Add 1 cup of boiling water to the gelatin mix and stir until the gelatin dissolves completey. Leave the mixture to cool to room temperature. Once cooled, pour in the cup of chilled champagne stirring continually. Pour the mixture into a shallow pan. You can now add fresh starwberries to the mixture and then leave to refrigerate until firm (about 4 hours). When the jello is firm, place the bottom of the pan into hot water and the jello should slide out. Cut into shot pieces and decorate with sugar!
