Raspberry & Ginger Champagne Cocktail

Sometimes you just want to feel fancy. Or, sometimes you are fancy and you need a drink to match. Either way, this drink fits the bill. Sweet and bubbly with a bit of ginger, this champagne cocktail is perfect for a girls night, date night, or hang out with your cat night.

Wine Enthusiast was kind enough to send me these lovely champagne glasses. I'm really excited about them because not only do they look great, but they claim to be the "world's most break-resistant glass." I have broken way too many wine glasses, so I'm happy that these dainty glasses are strong as well. Hopefully I won't have to test the claim for a while! While on the topic of glassware, how cool are these double wall martini glasses? I would love them for sipping a cocktail while watching Mad Men. 

Raspberry & Ginger Champagne Cocktail
