Champagne Wednesday: Horn of Plenty

Grand Marnier, bitters, grenadine, champagneThis week I bought my first bottle of grenadine.  Do you remember where you were when you bought your first bottle of grenadine?  Probably not.  It’s a weird thing to remember.  However, I remember it quite clearly because it was less than a week ago.  I was in Hiller’s market, I stopped to get a little four pack of tiny champagne bottles, as is my usual to-do before a Champagne Wednesday, and the grenadine was right where I thought it would be, near the bitters and other cocktail accoutrements, in a tall dark bottle.

‘Now that is a bottle of tasty looking syrup,’ I said to myself.  I may or may not have made a mental note to try it on pancakes sometime.  It’s not important.

What is important is this: this week’s Champagne Wednesday cocktail is delicious.  Tart, beautiful, tasty and you can get 3 servings out of a 187ml bottle of sparkling wine.  I know this because I did.  Aaaaand I drank all three.  I was on my own!  Josh was away at a gaming convention this week.  And besides, they were only champagne flutes.  And I drank them while making dinner, so it hardly even counts at all.
