Ok Detailz fans….. as you all know we have a fun summer blog series on signature drinks to give you inspiration for you next party or upcoming wedding! I look for any excuse to come up with a fun concoction to serve whether it be throughout the evening or just as a fun welcome as your guests arrive. This ones a zinger! If you like spice this one’s for you. It’s got a good dose of fresh ginger, chinese five spice and the star anise. This is a SASSY cocktail if there ever was one! If you aren’t a fan of anise, give it a little does of citrus peels and juice instead-I think it’ll still be well worth the effort!
1/2 cup chopped fresh ginger 2/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar 1/4 teaspoon Chinese five-spice powder 3 tablespoons chopped crystallized ginger 8 whole star anise 1 bottle (750 ml) Champagne or sparkling wine This one is definitely worth a try!! Happy Friday!! Recipe is from one of my fav culinary go-tos….epicurious
