This Ball Drop Cocktail is the perfect drink to make for your New Year’s Eve party! We like champagne cocktail all the time, but a NYE party is the best!
New Year’s Eve will be here soon and I know that night is usually all about the champagne. Champagne’s OK in my book but it’s definitely more of a “special occasion” type thing for me. I wanted to find a champagne cocktail that I think everyone will enjoy, especially the guys. This Ball Drop champagne cocktail has a little bourbon and orange liquor in it…just to give it a little extra kick.
I guess everyone’s probably started thinking about New Year’s resolutions already. I have found that it always seems to be the same top ten things…
New Year’s Eve Resolutions:
- Spend more time with family and friends
- Career Change
- Quit smoking
- Enjoy life more, slow down
- Quit drinking – let’s not get crazy, but slow down once in a while too
- Get out of debt
- Learn something new
- Help others more
- Get more organized
For me, it seems that the most important thing is to spend more time with family and friends. Every year at this time I always look back and remember all the things that I have done with my family and realize how quickly time goes by. I’ve learned to have a different outlook in life and not to stress about everything so much and to just be thankful for the life that I have and the family and friends who are in it.
Easier said than done, I know, it took me a long time to get there.
I hope you all have a safe and happy New Years Eve!
