White Poinsettia

I live in a house filled with pale furnishings, and with 2 dogs and 3 cats, I’m regularly cleaning and avoiding as many red consumables as possible. Poinsettia cocktails (cranberry juice, triple sec, and champagne) are far too risky with a bunch of sloshy drunks wandering around the house and over-gesturing the important points of just how crazy drivers are nowadays.

To be fair, I have seen some crazy drivers and really like to emphasize just how crazy they are. For instance, I once saw a man exiting the interstate with a phone in one hand, an ice cream cone in another, and a map splayed out across the steering wheel. Now that leaves me incredibly confused because at some point he bought an ice cream cone and entered onto the interstate, and the previous exit was 5 miles back. However, I know there are no ice cream cones at that exit, which leaves the exit previous to that, and that exit is 10 miles back.

Don’t get me wrong – I’ve tried to eat an ice cream cone while driving, but if I had no idea where I was going, that thing would be eaten! So did he just eat ice cream cones very slowly? Did he actually live at the previous exit and make a cone for the road before leaving his home? Was he just an incredibly fast driver? At any point did he take a good look at his situation? These are things I want to know.

Anyway, back on topic…

To preserve my furnishings and serve a delicious drink, I made a White Poinsettia because I’m lazy and want to avoid stressing over people possibly sloshing colored cocktails all over the place. A good hostess shouldn’t hover with a towel and cleaning solutions – it seems to make guests uncomfortable.

Or maybe I should only invite people I can trust with colored beverages even if it’d likely be the most boring party ever.

Recipe:

Pour 1 oz Triple Sec and ½ oz White Brandy into champagne glass and top with Dry-Extra Dry Champagne.

Serve with an orange twist.
