Merry Merry! Today’s holiday post is a quick simple yet stunning Candy Cane Champagne Cocktail Recipe you can make to impress a crowd or just to treat your special someone. This holiday I’ve created this cocktail with One Hope Wine’s Limited Edition Gold Glitter California sparkling wine. Every bottle of this champagne you serve provides 15 meals to children in need, and that is certainly something worthy of drinking to.
This season I’ve partnered with One Hope Wine and the One Hope Foundation to spread the word about their wonderful quality wines that provide so much to children, women, animals and so many others in need. A portion of each bottle purchased is donated to the vintage or grow’s designated cause. I encourage you to check them out the next time you are planning a party or stocking your cellar.

Wishing you all a truly wonderful, very Merry Christmas.
Thanks so much for reading and following along this year.
Candy Cane Champagne Cocktail
1 bottle (750ml) dry, Brut, champagne
(like this fabulous One Hope Wine Gold Glitter Ltd Edition sparkling wine)
2 candy canes, crushed
2 shots creme de cacoa or
rim the glass with an orange slice (much like a margaritta) in a pinch
5-6 unwrapped candy canes, for garnish
Take 5 chilled champagne flutes and rim each glass by either dipping the rim into a shallow dish of creme de cacoa liquor or taking an orange slice and coating the riming much like you would with lime when prepping a margarita for salt.
Crush 2 candy canes in a zip lock bag using a rolling pin till you have a nice powder with several small chunks of the peppermint. Transfer to a shallow dish or plate.
Then dip each glass rim into the crushed candy cane and let sit on the counter for 1 minute, while you pop the champagne. Pour champagne into each glass about 3/4 of the way and garnish with a candy can right before serving.
