A glamourous New Year's Toast

Leave it to the French to create the world's first sparkling liqueur called NUVO. This gorgeous soft pink blend of vodka, French sparkling wine, chardonnay and pinot noir is great alone but its even better in event planner extraordinaire David Tutura's signature New Year's drink - Midnight Kiss.

Try this at home:

- Add one spoonful of muddled raspberries and blackberries to a champagne flute

- Fill glass 3/4 of the way full with Champagne or Proseco (about 3 oz.)
- Top with one ounce of NUVO Sparkling Liqueur

If you're hosting a New Year's Eve gathering, this will surely get the party started! I think it would also be fabulous for creating signature cocktails to serve at a bridal shower, engagement party or wedding.

Have you created a signature drink for your wedding?

Midnight Kiss sounds very romantic. Maybe it will be this summers high fashion signature wedding cocktail, first reported by the globetrotting bride.

Have you tried the Nuvo yet? It sounds like a lot to mix together, but I am now curious to try it. Love the packaging.
