So, now that January is over, instead of a green juice smoothie recipe, I am back with a cocktail recipe! I added a twist- a little DIY for your champagne!
We are going to make sugar cubes- whew hoo!! Making your own sugar cubes is ridiculously easy and when you soak the sugar cubes in some angostura bitters in a heart mold- You have a romantic, sweet champagne cocktail. And, we all know I love the bubbly! (and pink, and hearts ;)
How To Make Sugar Cubes
1/2 cup of Superfine Sugar
2 teaspoons Angostura Bitters
Food Dye (optional)
(If you want a non-alcoholic version, use a water instead of the angostura bitters, but you will need food dye to color them)
Mix sugar and bitters together. They were not quite pink enough for me, so I added a couple drops of food dye to make them more pink.
Add sugar to the heart silicone mold and pack it in tightly.
Let the sugar cubes harden for a few hours or overnight. Pop out and pop open some champagne bottles! (P.S. it is not messy, I just threw pink sugar everywhere for the photo!)
For the perfect Valentine or Galentine gift, drop a couple heart shaped sugar cubes into a clear bag, tape to a champagne bottle and bam! simple, cute and thoughtful gift!
