Aaaaand here it is. 2021 is coming to an end. May I say good riddance? After the year we had in 2020, we had high hopes for this year, but it turned out to be a dud as well. I had some good times during the summer, but I’m still paying off debt from the Covid shut downs, work is scattered, sometimes scary, you just don’t know which virus is lurking around the corner. Mask or no mask? The vaccine was never a question for me, I got it as soon as it was available for me, though I do understand that it’s a major concern for others. So. With that said, let’s hope for a great and healthy 2022, we all deserve it. I have all intentions to ring in the New Year with style and some stylish cocktails. You too? Good. Here’s a great recipe, fruity and bubbly, just what Dr. Fauci ordered. Or whoever, if you’re not a fan.
In a Champange Flute, add the Barcardi and the cranberry juice, then add the sparkling rosé. Make sure all ingredients are cooled or chilled. No garnishes are necessary, but feel free to add anything you like to make it look more festive.
Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that.
All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything.
Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
