Because Ms. Spenser is a very popular girl, people give her things. For example, a couple gave her some bubbly wine that they didn't need. So I now have three bottles of prosecco and a bottle of Dom Perignon 2004.
Now, the DP is obviously the prize here. At 12 years, I think we'd better drink it as soon as possible, but we want to wait for an Occasion. I have no scruples about the prosecco - I also don't mind mixing it into a cocktail. Since I had the ingredients around, I made a French 76 variation: an Aviation with a bubbly topper:
1/2 oz Maraschino
1 oz lime juice
1/2 oz Creme de Violette
2 oz gin
Stir over ice, strain into flute.
Top with sparkling wine
These are pretty lethal. I recommend no more than one before 3:00 PM.
