for my friends who love to garden, spending time outdoors—or is this one for me? it’s also tempting to
stick a candle in them and do the Chianti bottle with wax drippings thing…hmmm…

happy hanukkah!

photo by: scazonKnown as the Festival of Lights, Hanukkah is observed by lighting a Menorah which holds 9 candles.

One is for each night of the holiday, and an extra light called a shamash—meaning guard or servant. Traditionally placed higher than the others, it’s lit each night and is used to light all the other candles.

Hanukkah began last night at sunset—Happy Hanukkah!

While the holidays are filled with the aroma of peppermint and pinecones, I prefer my cocktails to stay sweet and fruity with the help of my new cocktail shaker.

Entertaining extraordinaire and blogger, Camille Styles, created the quintessential party libation—the Hibiscus Tea Fizz—which is perfect for this soiree season.

Check out her new book, Entertaining: Inspired Gatherings & Effortless Style for more style tips and recipes!

Ingredients:
1 750 ml bottle sparkling wine, Champagne or prosecco
1 C vodka
½ C honey
2 hibiscus-flavored tea bags
24 blackberries, fresh
Makes 8 cocktails

Directions:
1. In a pitcher, combine the vodka and tea bags. Let stand at room temperature for 2 hours and then discard the tea bags. Refrigerate the tea-infused vodka until cold.

2. For each cocktail, muddle 2 blackberries with 1 or 2 teaspoons honey in a cocktail shaker—make it more or less sweet based on preference—add 1 ounce tea-infused vodka and 1 teaspoon cold water, then shake vigorously for 30 seconds.

3. Strain into a flute to the halfway mark then fill the glass with sparkling wine, Champagne or prosecco. Garnish with a blackberry and serve.
