Christmas in July Kick-Off

At 7:30am, it's far too early for a cocktail but I wanted to post this recipe in case any of you would like to join me for a celebratory toast to Christmas in July this evening.

Poinsettia Cocktail (makes one cocktail)

In a champagne flute, combine 1/2 ounce orange liqueur (Grand Marnier, Cointreau or Triple Sec) and 3 ounces cranberry juice. Add an orange twist and top up with chilled champagne. For the mocktail version, substitute orange juice for the orange liqueur and sparkling water or cider for the champagne.

Happy Christmas in July - cheers!

Update: Forgot to post this evening's Christmas in July movie - Hollywood Christmas.

Available from Netflix as an Instant Play selection and here's what they have to say about it:
Actress Jane Seymour hosts this collection of scenes from holiday movies, ranging from classics such as It's a Wonderful Life, Miracle on 34th Street and White Christmas to contemporary favorites Home Alone, The Nightmare Before Christmas and A Christmas Story. Deleted scenes and footage from other films feature chanteuse Rosemary Clooney singing "Welcome Christmas, Little Friend" and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer in a 1944 animated short.
