Happy 4th of July!

Sadly my celebrations end early today as Mr. J and I drive back to Connecticut.  In case you are still looking for a bit of fun, here is a fabulous summer cocktail drink that will surely brighten your holiday.

This recipe was adapted from a special drink served at L'Escoffier restaurant in the CIA Hyde Park campus from a graduating senior Stephanie. Not only is it refreshing and yummy, the colors are perfect for any kind of Fourth of July celebration.

Ketal One Vodka
Cremant d'Alsace
Wedge of Lime

Mix two parts of each liquor with one part sugar. Mush berries with sugar and put in bottom of glass. Pour combined vodka and cremant and pour over berry mixture. Add lime juice.
