One of my all time favorite cocktails is the Pink Halo. Please realize that this drink can cause all kinds of fabulous laughing, dancing and general merriment and should only be used when one desires a most delectable party atmosphere.
- Vodka (I use Three Olives)
- Champagne (I like Martini Asti Spumanti)
- Cherries, Strawberries or Raspberries
Pour a small amount of the grenadine on a saucer to lightly coat the plate. In another saucer pour a 1/8″ layer of sugar. Dip the rim of the martini glass in the grenadine and then dip in the sugar to create the Pink Halo sugar rim. Pour 1/8 – 1 full teaspoon of grenadine into glass(this depends on your preference for super sugary or not – I use just a tiny splash to add color and sweetness). Top with 1 shot of vodka. Fill remaining glass with Champagne. Float berries for final garnish.
