Apricot Fizz for #SundaySupper

Apricot Fizz | Magnolia Days

Thousands of tiny bubbles are rising to the surface. Each one is a perfect round ball reflecting images from outside the glass. Some bubbles burst as they hit the surface and others stay to float around the top. The moments of our life are like those glistening spheres. We have thousands of moments within a year. Some pass without notice. Others hang on to become cherished memories. Our reflections from the past can make us smile as we carry those precious ones into the coming year. I plan to sip on an Apricot Fizz and watch the bubbles rise as I think about many wonderful moments of this year.

The days pass so quickly. It seems as if time speeds up and before you know it another year ends. A week ago it was spring. How did winter get here so fast? A day or two ago I was meeting many of my Sunday Supper friends at the Food and Wine Conference. Oh wait, that was July. Has it really been five months since then? Wow. Now we are coming together virtually to share our reflections and resolutions along with recipes for remembering the past year or bringing in the new one.

Apricot Fizz is a sparkly, fruity cocktail. It’s very easy to make. Pour an ounce of homemade Apricardamom liqueur in a flute and top it with sparkling wine or champagne. I recommend using brut or extra-dry sparkling wine since the liqueur has a sweetness of its own. You can use apricot brandy if you haven’t had a chance to make Apricardamom.

I absolutely love apricots so this drink sounds wonderful to me. Too bad I had to spend the holiday time without alcohol this year. Next year I will put this on my list to try. :)

However, you can enjoy this cocktail any time of the year. Something bubbly and fizzy can make any celebration more fun.

I can relate because I don't know where this year has gone, either. Have a very happy new year, my friend. If I were there with you, I'd be so happy to have this drink with you.

Have a very happy year ahead Anita and perhaps one day soon we can have cocktails and more together.
