Nigella’s Filthy Fizz for a Happy New Year {Powernap}

Filthy Fizz

In preparation for tomorrow night’s celebration I thought I’d share this fun recipe from Nigella’s new book. I don’t talk about cocktails often since I am usually a wine drinker, but I am always up for a cool champagne cocktail when the occasion calls for it. I mean, with a name like Filthy Fizz how can it not be the perfect beverage for a New Year’s Celebration!

Before I cut straight to the bubbly I want to thank you all, readers, once again for your amazing support this year. It has been a big year for The Naptime Chef with moving to Connecticut, starting a daily column at Babble’s The Family Kitchen, securing the Book Deal, redesigning the website, starting my Tales from the Trenches columns, and producing my first ever packaged food products for JMcLaughlin Westport. It has been a lot of hard work and you have been with me every step of the way. So thank you from the very bottom of my heart. I know that I have a lot to be thankful for as we kick-off 2011. I promise this coming year I’ll do my best to deliver even more delicious food, helpful articles and fun webisodes. Happy New Year!

This would look amazing in a punch bowl, but I usually serve it right in champagne flutes!

Naptime Reviews

Everyone loves this simple beverage, it is dark and gorgeous, perfectly festive for mid-winter. Just keep them away from the under 21 set!

    Did you catch her interview about this on NPR a while ago? I think I have a bit of a crush on Nigella. She’s so great.
