Thirsty Thursday: Spring Champagne Sangria

The sun is shining. The birds are chirping. And Thirsty Thursday is here once again. I hope you're all having a marvelous week - if you are, good for you. This Champagne Sangria is the perfect way to celebrate. If you aren't, my condolences. This cocktail is sure to cheer you up.

This week, I'm teaming up with my friends over at the SoFab Food Blog to share this recipe - so if you want to see the full details, head over there and check it out. (Psst, just click the link here)


Give this one a try- couldn't be easier to drink. And it's chock-full of vitamin C, so it's basically good for you. Ok maybe not. But let's pretend, shall we? Cheers! x

Mother's Day Mimosas

Happy Mother's Day, Moms! To all of my mommy-readers out there - and especially my own - thank you. For all that you do. We literally wouldn't be here without you.

I hope you're all celebrating this morning with a nice brunch - and hopefully a few cocktails! I know mimosas are traditional brunch staples, but today I wanted to share with you a little something to kick them up a notch. (And to get mom to kick off her heels and spill a family secret or two to you!)

Presenting "Flirtinis". Based on a classic mimosa, the difference here is swapping OJ for Pineapple juice and - if your mom is daring - an extra kick of vodka! They are delicious. But whew do they pack a punch. Make sure to pace yourself with these ones. Or don't. Just don't drive afterwards. 

Simply pour two parts chilled pineapple juice and one part vodka in the bottom of a champagne flute, and top with a nice dry champagne (like classic Korbel Brut.) Couldn't be more simple. Whip up a batch, and let the good times roll. Hope you all have a fantastic mother's day! XO

Thirsty Thursday: Pink Champagne

Whew! It has been another busy week here at Mogblog. In honor of the upcoming weekend - and in the spirit of keeping things quick and convenient - I present a 2 ingredient cocktail: Pink Champagne.

That's right. This recipe takes just two ingredients. Champagne of your choice (In my opinion, a nice toasty brut is perfect here) and frozen raspberries. Simply place the berries in the bottom of your glass, and pour champagne over them.

What makes this cocktail so great, is that it's so delicious, and so very simple. The frozen raspberries keep the champagne cold without watering it down, and as they thaw, they tint it the most chic shade of pink. Love it

Let me know if you give this recipe a try - and if you have any other cocktails you love to put champagne in. (I'm always looking for ways to use my leftover champs!)
