My Christmas in July kick-off got a late start so it's time to make it official with this year's Christmas cocktail. Yikes, moving is expensive so there's not a whole lot in the slush fund to buy exotic liqueurs to experiment with this time around. I do, however, have a small bottle of Chambord, a black raspberry liqueur that is just crying out to be mixed with champagne (got the champagne, too!). It goes by the unimaginative name of Chambord & Champagne so I'm going to have to jazz it up a little. How about the Noël? You can't get much more French and Christmas-y than that!
So tonight's dinner is Poulet à la Sauce tomate-ail (Chicken in Tomato-Garlic Sauce, my CrockPot favorite) with a Noël - Joyeux Noël en juillet - Merry Christmas in July!
