MogoBlog MogoLicious Tasty Tip of the Day: Take a Champagne cocktail, forget the sugar, add some ruby port and orange juice and you have a “Happy New Year.” It really is the name of this fantastic drink and it is an ideal way to ring in the new year.<
As Champagne cocktails go, this one has a little more depth than most and that is what makes it interesting. The addition of port and orange juice bring in fantastic fruit notes that play wonderfully off the brandy and sparkling wine.
