Tie One On Tuesday

 It's time to kick 2010 to the curb and invite 2011 in to boogie down with you in the champagne room. Speaking of champagne, I've got a few cocktails to wet your whistle while you are shaking your money maker on the dance floor. Hollar!

Say you need something to get your boom boom hitting the room room-well this is the cocktail just for you.

Boom Boom cocktail
1 shot sweet vermouth
1 shot dark rum
1/2 shot orange juice
Put the vermouth, rum and orange juice into a Champagne flute. Add in Champagne to fill. Toss on a slice of banana for a tropical accent, and enjoy!

Oh my! Is that a sparky pepper in your pocket or are you just glad to see me...oh, it's a sparky pepper,my mistake.

Sparky Pepper
1 oz. Pepper Vodka
Pour champagne into a flute glass and add shot of vodka, mix slightly and see the sparks fly!

The clock is ringing midnight and the ball has fallen. It's time to give a sweet kiss good-bye. Oh 2010-let's just be friends. No, you don't need my number...I'm going out of the country for a year...on safari...helping build churches in a land far, far away...don't call me, I'll call you.

A Good Night Kiss
1 drop Angostura Bitters
1 sugar cube
1 splash Campari
Add the bitters to the cube and place in the bottom of a Champagne flute. Add a splash of Campari, and then fill it up with Champagne.

Oh yeah! Ringing in the new year-Pedersen style. Whoop! Whoop! Now good riddance to you 2010-don't let the door hit ya where the good Lord split ya. 2011, it's your time to shine.

As the old saying goes...Here's champagne for our real friends and real pain for our sham friends and when our journey finally ends...may all of us find peace. Happy New Year!
