There’s no question that 2021 was a pretty rough year, and all of us are hopeful and excited to usher in 2022. It also marks the first time in several years we have the option of gathering with friends and family, which means that celebratory cocktails are absolutely on the menu.
When it comes to New Year’s Eve, we’re all about sparkling wine. Whether that means straight-up Champagne or a fun cocktail, we’re ready!
At Casa Limone in New York City, the Kir Italiano is an elegant, bubbly cocktail, made with Prosecco, lemon juice, simple syrup, St. Germain elderflower liqueur, and Crème Yvette—a fragrant liqueur made with parma violet petals, blackberries, red raspberries, wild strawberries and cassis, honey, orange peel and vanilla. Its dramatic red color and delicate bubbles make this the perfect festive cocktail to toast to the new year! “The Kir Italiano is a great holiday cocktail as its vivid color brings out the holiday spirit. It’s a take on the classic Kir cocktail—in ours, we add Crème de Cassis and elderflower liqueur, which gives it a unique flavor. Although served chilled in a champagne flute, this is a cocktail that will keep you warm on cold winter days in New York City,” said Alex Teisanu, CEO and Director of Casa Limone.
