Cocktails to bring in the New Year

x-rated fusion
Toast 2010 in style. Happy X-Rated Fusion New Year

Whether you’re throwing your own party or crashing one, offer a delicious twist to the inevitable midnight toast.

After the requisite bottles of champagne have been secured, opt to add a spirited and playful splash of pink to the glass and the party with X-Rated Fusion Liqueur. This is a yummy fusion of ultra premium French vodka and blood oranges, mangoes and passion fruits and one of my new favorite flavors. These fun cocktails are from some of the hottest spots in the US so a big thanks to the Bartenders who created them and are sharing them with me.

Of course you may be going to a party and do want to bring a bottle of the bubbly or two. Make sure you see the wonderful gifts that Moët & Chandon have to offer. I especially love the minis…can’t go wrong with them. These are really great ideas for your receptions so bookmark this page and refer to it often.

This is the dawn of a new decade…make it yours. Congratulations to all you newly engaged couples and remember if you ever wished for a bridal fairy godmother, I’m here. Contact me if you have any special requests. Here’s wishing you every good thing in 2010. HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
