Cheers to a Dreamy New Year!

Recipe and image via

Can you believe tomorrow is the first day of 2011?! I have a good feeling about this one and am excited to get it started. How about you? Any predictions or resolutions for the new year? As for me, I plan to work harder, save money, stop procrastinating, read better books and watch better movies. All pretty doable I think!

We know everyone will be toasting tonight with lots of bubbly so we'd love to share these very sexy champagne cocktails with you, which we found over on Huffington Post. The one pictured above, The Lanesborough, is a twist on the classic Mimosa so you can even enjoy it at your New Years Brunch.

The Lanesborough
.66 oz Grand Marnier
.66 oz Cranberry juice
.66 oz Passion fruit juice or puree
2 oz Moet Champagne
Garnish: Orange spiral twist
Glass: Flute
Preparation: Add Grand Marnier, cranberry juice, passion fruit juice or puree to a shaker and fill with ice. Shake vigorously and strain into a chilled champagne flute. Top with Moet Champagne and garnish with an orange spiral twist.

Hope everyone has a wonderful time tonight and a happy new year!

P.S. Check out one of the best New Years movies ever, 200 Cigarettes. ♥
