Sparkling Shirley Temple Cocktail

I don’t know anyone that didn’t love ordering shirley temples when they were young! It was the best and made you feel so grown up ordering this little mocktail. I still order it from time to time – never gets old! When trying to think of fun holiday cocktails (I am often the designated bar tender at Christmas), I figured making this mocktail, a cocktail. It’s delish and can’t wait to break it out this holiday.

Sparkling Shirley Temple


  • Sparkling Wine or Champagne – I used Le Grand Courtage Brut (it’s so good and worked perfectly in this champs cocktail, you can order it here)
  • 1 1/2 tbsp of grenadine (if you don’t want that sweet, adjust accordingly)
  • splash of ginger ale (optional)
  • maraschino cherries for garnish

Pour in grenadine, add a splash of ginger ale and top with Le Grand Courtage and that’s it!!

Chrismukkah Table Setting

We celebrate Chrismukkah in the Sky household. My husband and I are Jewish (I converted prior to our wedding) however, Christmas is a big holiday for my family so we celebrate both! You may remember the show ‘The OC’ (it was really big when I was in high school) and Seth describes the holiday best – you can find the clip, here. Given that we celebrate both Hanukkah and Christmas I try decorate the house and of course our table accordingly. Last year, I went with a winter white tablescape…

Stocking Stuffer Gift Ideas

Want to know something interesting? When I think about it, I don’t recall having official stocking stuffers. We had stockings out, but I don’t remember doing the whole mini gift thing… Maybe because I just remember all the amazing toys Santa brought so didn’t pay much attention lol. #verylikely Cute and fun gifts are such a fun twist to the holidays! I feel like the older we get the bigger our lists and gifts grow, but finding creative and fun mini gifts can show your creativity – especially when you…

5 Holiday Decorating Tips for Small Spaces

I’m going to let you in on a not-so-little secret….I LOVE THE HOLIDAYS! In years past, we (read I) didn’t do but so much holiday decorating in our condo. Mainly, just pretty table settings, a few decorative pieces, and a festive bar cart look. Why? One, because (if I”m honest) I tend to make excuses for our available space to decorate (followed by a ‘BJ this is why we need a house’ comment and an eye roll from him). Two, because we spend the holidays with family and my mom…
