Marasca Fizz
(New Year’s Day Champagne Recipes)

Champagne and the New Year are matching bookends. You must have both to truly ring in a festive 2011. This champagne cocktail originated in the fashionable parlors of the upper west side in New York City. Cherry Heering is a brandy-based Danish cherry liqueur. You can find this liqueur at any specialty liquor or package store. Our test kitchen at Foodcreate.com has been sampling this recipe all day long. It is really outstanding. The maraschino cherries combined with angostura bitters create a tangy and rather pungent odor and sensation. Angostura lends a dramatic effect to this wonderful cocktail. Enjoy. Drink responsibly and have a wonderful New Year!
