Cocktail of the Week: Beach Cup

The ball has dropped and 2010 is here—are the festivities really over? It’s a New Year, so rather than worry about resolutions, we’re going to elevate the occasion with light, fizzy champagne cocktails that are fruit-filled, velvety, and wonderfully tasty. Start the New Year on the right foot with a yummy champagne-infused cocktail, such as a Beach Cup, to spice up your night.

Beach Cup Recipe


1 Sliced strawberry

4 Grapes cut in half

3 Orange slices

6 Mint leaves

3 oz. Sour mix

3 oz. Champagne (We used Barefoot Bubbly Brut Cuvee)


Combine fruit and sour mix in a pint glass with ice. Shake well and top off with champagne. Serve with a straw.
