Excuse the filthy counters, I was so excited about my cocktail I didn't bother cleaning up after myself. I can't remember where I saw this cocktail recipe, but I know it showed up the day of the Oscars and I purchased the requisite ingredients immediately. And I'm not sorry. Not even a little. (Additionally, if the bubbly gives you headaches [in which case I feel VERY sorry for you] you can sub in some chardonnay. Not nearly as tasty, but equally effective ifyaknowwhatimsayin.)
How much better would this cocktail look in my hand if I had this in my other hand:

Granted, it wouldn't have gone well with the outfit I was wearing while sipping this cocktail (namely leggings, an oversized t-shirt, and my frog slippies) but a certain amount of pizzazz never hurt any outfit (or cocktail), no matter how mundane (or plain-old-hideous).
