Gorgeous Drink!!! This was such a fabulous recipe! I used the optional creme de noyaux which really added to the striking color! Also used a brut champagne as suggested. This is my new favorite Champagne drink! I cannot believe I was the inspiration!!! Love the title and the directions! Fabulous! Ten thumbs up! RSC #11
