Dress and Dish | Superbowl Sunday Champagne CocktailDress and Dish | Superbowl Sunday Champagne CocktailDress and Dish | Superbowl Sunday Champagne CocktailI am not a football fan. Tennis, golf, baseball and basketball, I will watch but football has never been my thing. I mean I played powder puff football in high school and actually almost de-flagged my own team mate. So, as you can guess, I don’t really get into Super Bowl Sunday.

What I do like about the Super Bowl is that it doesn’t start until 3pm. So, that gives you plenty of time to enjoy a Sunday brunch and maybe even a Champagne cocktail or two.

Williams-Sonoma Recipe

Ingredients :
4 oz Raspberries
3 table spoons Creme de Cassis
1 bottle dry Champagne, chilled
4-6 teaspoons Grenadine syrup (optional)

Fresh raspberries macerated in creme de cassis and then bathed in chilled Champagne, with just a hint of grenadine for extra flavor. Put the raspberries in a small bowl, add in the creme de cassis and let macerate for at least 30 minutes. Divide the raspberries between six Champagne glasses and pour in the well chilled Champagne. Add grenadine in for taste and serve immediately.

Serves six.

  1. If only I had one or two of these with me for the Super Bowl… It definitely would have been the highlight of the event! Can’t say I’m a big sports fan either.

  2. Now this is a cocktail I can get behind. It’s a close sibling to one of my all time faves, a Kir Royal. Supplemented oh so well with raspberries- twice the fun. Definitely pinning to my cocktail board.
