I mean, aren’t candy canes the most quintessential holiday treat?! Well, I certainly think so! I’ve always loved them and thought stumbled across a way to add a holiday fav to one of my others – champagne, darling!
This peppermint champagne cocktail is very simple (only 3 ingredients!) and would be a nice addition to your festive hosting this season. Here’s what you need:
- Candy Canes
- Champagne/Sparkling Wine of choice
- White Creme de Cacao (this gives a slight chocolate flavor – you could also use peppermint schnapps if you want to amp up the peppermint taste)
Pour about 2oz of white creme de cacao in the glass (if you want more of the cacao flavor, add more). Top the glass with champagne/sparkling wine and add the candy cane for garnish! It’s that easy!
By the way, you will notice as the candy cane sits it will begin to disintegrate and gives you more of that peppermint taste.

Turn the garnish level up and add a peppermint rim! How? Before making this yummy drink, pour a little white creme de cacao in a shallow dish, dip the rims of the glass and then dip the rims in crushed candy cane – pretty and tasty!

The holidays came a couple of months after Bj and I got married and we talked about sending out holiday cards to our friends and family with one of our wedding photos.

I’ve always thought about how great it would be to start now and as our family grows (not yet…but one day…years from now lol), be able…
This is the season for quite a bit of entertaining and one of my go- tos for putting out a little ‘nosh’ is a good ol’ cheese plate. I love doing them not only because they are an easy option but also because I am always trying to improve my presentation. I don’t know about you, but don’t you look at some on Pinterest or wherever and say to yourself, ‘why don’t mine look like that’ *eye roll*. Well, if you do, you’re not alone darling! Practice makes perfect though!…
Thinking of having friends over before Thanksgiving? Why not host a wine tasting and recipe sharing night?! I don’t know about you, but while I love turkey and stuffing with all the fixings, I also love trying new recipes and twists to the old faithfuls. This is where getting inspiration from friends can come in! Have a few friends over to try some different wines, an hors d’oeuvre or two, and ask each guest to plan to share one of their favorite recipes. My mister and I really…
My love of home decor, tablescapes, entertaining, etc. I get from my mom! She is the ultimate hostess! She put together this lovely, yet simple tablescape on her rec room dining table for Thanksgiving. I love the rich , yet light tones and especially love the Kim Seybert table accessories. [Champagne Darling Inspiration] Have more than one dining table in your home? Decorate your others too, even if they aren’t going to be used when you have guests over! One, it is another form of decorating for the holiday…
