the mommy’s signature drink: Glamorous Imperial Cocktail

It’s New Year’s Eve and it is time to celebrate! Although I only drink occasionally, in view of the fact that I’m a mommy now; I will make an exception tonight in moderation of course. When the hubby and I were first married we rented a little shack that came with a very tremendous bar; so needless to say we both became pretty good bartenders while living there. So to commemorate 2009, I will share the recipe to my signature drink the Glamorous Imperial, which is my twist on the Kir Imperial.

Glamorous Imperial Cocktail
1 ounce* Chambord Raspberry Liqueur
1 ounce Pineapple Juice
½ ounce Malibu Rum
Champagne (I prefer Gaetano D'Aquino Asti Champagne only $5.99 at Trader Joe’s)
Fresh berries for garnish
*1 ounce = 1 shot

Place Chambord, pineapple juice and rum in a shaker with ice and shake vigorously for 15-20 seconds, then strain into a martini glass or flute. Top off with champagne and add a few berries for garnish.
