DOTW: Sparkling Summer Solstice

Is summer over yet? Nooooo, not by a long shot. Summer cocktails are still in order. Summer solstice was a few months ago, I wish I would have found this cocktail then. But hey, it’s never too late. I personally love cocktails that include cognac, they’re so smooth usually. So, this one turned into an instant favorite for me. Which is a little dangerous. Unwind with this yummy drink after a long day or a fun weekend!

What you’ll need:

Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add Courvoisier, lemon juice and strawberry syrup. Shake well. Pour into a Coupe glass, the top it off with Prosecco. Garnish with an orange peel.

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!
