Christmas in Paris is possibly even more romantic than Paris in the Spring ... or the Fall ... or really anytime is magnificent, Paris has a tendency to always shine ... but I particularly love the way the French celebrate the Season!

The Champagne Cocktail ... my favorite way to kick off the celebration of the Night and Lights in Paris.
1 sugar cube
2-3 dashes Angostura bitters
1 oz brandy
orange slice for garnish
Place the sugar cube in the bottom of your Champagne Flute
Dash the sugar cube with the Angostura bitters
Fill with Champagne
Garnish with Orange
p.s. please visit At The Picket Fence ... a fun blog by two sisters, Vanessa and Heather. I joined in on their Christmas Blogger Block Party featuring Doors and Porches. They were kind enough to feature our Red Front Door ... guarded carefully by the "boys" Byron and Cooper! Thank you ladies!
