Recipe - "The Lucy" - Champagne Ginger & Bourbon Cocktail

We were having a great time serving Sparkling Turmeric Dusted Baby Ginger and Bourbon and Ginger cocktails at Lucy's Market in Atlanta, GA, decked out with holiday cheer the week before Christmas. 

"...wonder what these would taste like together" asked Leslie M. Seemed like an innocent enough question.

Answer is "Oh, wow - I have to serve this at my New Year's party!"

At last, an answer to the question, "what happens when tailgate meets little black dress?" Meet "The Lucy" champagne cocktail. Warm, light, spicy and refreshing. Your favorite sparkling wine (or sparkling water for the designated driver) with a shot of Bourbon and Ginger Syrup.   

The perfect winter celebration champagne cocktail. A wonderful complement to a cheese board or savory dip. With an easy pre-mixed shot (delicious by itself) and glasses with a jewel of Turmeric Dusted Baby Ginger in the bottom, the Lucy is ready to go as soon as guests arrive.
