cranberry fizz


The signature cocktail for the German-Swiss Dinner Party was a blend of cranberry juice, Grand Marnier and Prosecco. If I had more time and energy I would have dressed it up with a few fresh cranberries and a sprig of thyme or rosemary.

But you know what? Those accouterments prevent one from quickly downing their cocktail, they just get in the way. Now that I think about it, I’m glad I didn’t dress it up!


Here are most of the guests, some with cocktails in hand, celebrating Tram & Steve for being named Best Power Couple in the October “Best of Phoenix” issue of Phoenix Magazine. I know they were a bit embarrassed that I placed an issue of the magazine on each table and then made them pose for me. What can I say? I’m proud of them!


Plus, it’s such a great photo of an amazing couple! Congratulations Steve & Tram! Love you to pieces!

Hi Betsy, I mixed up a batch of the cranberry-Grand Marnier mixture by placing 1 1/4 cups of each in a pitcher and stirring them together. I chilled the mixture until party time. I had all the champagne glasses out on a table and as the guests arrived, Dave made them each a cocktail by placing 2 tablespoons of the mixture in the bottom of a champagne glass and topping it off with chilled Prosecco. That made enough for 20 cocktails.
