December 31: Borough Breakfast Fizz
You will spend tonight toasting to the New Year with champagne. So why not toast the old year with a little fizz, too? Or perhaps you need a pregame cocktail, before you slip into something elegant for your social blitz. Either way, the Borough Breakfast Fizz should suit your mood just fine, whatever the time of day.
1.5 oz. Ketel One® Vodka
.75 oz. fresh lime juice
.75 oz. fresh Sunburst Tangerine juice
.5 oz. grenadine
Combine ingredients in a mixing glass. Dry shake for 30 seconds. Add ice and shake again. Double strain into a coupe glass. Garnish with sprigs of mint, rosemary and a grind of pink peppercorn.
Homemade Grenadine (an alternative to bottled):
2 cups fresh pomegranate juice, 2 cups sugar, 2 oz. pomegranate molasses and 1 tsp. orange blossom water. Heat juice slightly, just enough to allow other ingredients to dissolve easily. Stir in remaining ingredients, allow to cool, and bottle.
