    A nice twist on a buck's fizz. My family enjoy this on Christmas morning.

    Wonderful easy recipe for the holidays! To ensure the sugar crusted on the rim, I made these the evening before with red and white sugar crystal's and let them "sit up"! Preparing ahead of time, allowed the sugar to last through more than one refill of champagne! Beautiful, festive, fun and turned an ordinary glass of champagne into a work of art. Guests definitely felt special when sipping these!  -  06 Jan 2013  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I gave my sister in law the task of making the Christmas brunch cocktail and she came in with this little gem! Oh my it was so good that 3 of us drank the whole pitcher ourselves. Oh and don't skip the sugar rimmed glass it gave it the right festive touch.  -  27 Dec 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is insane good. I could drink these all night. Even my husband, the whiskey drinker, liked this. YUM.  -  08 Dec 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
