Ever get into a rut? Want to try something new? Well, for New Year’s Eve, I asked my husband to brush off his book on cocktails and brush up on a new signature drink for the evening. He chose a drink called The Ritz.
I liked it SO much that I snapped these photos mid drink and wanted to share the recipe with you. It’s that good. And, a great way to put that leftover champagne to use.
Fresh squeezed oj is worth the effort! Bottoms up everyone! Have a wonderful weekend!!

I adore your images….my dear husband has a business trip and will be staying at the Ritz…I think I may be a stow- away and order this drink!
Love the name! Hope 2012 is a magical year for you! Have a wonderful weekend, Elizabeth! xo

Looks delicious although we're hard-pressed to ever have any Champagne left over when we have it. A definite must-try.
I just copied this, it's always good to have some signature drinks to reference when entertaining! Happy New Year!

Looks like a great way to use the Ina Garten cognac I blogged about yesterday! And I'm up for any drink that calls for champagne.

Sounds yummy! But do we really ever have leftover champagne? 😉 Have a great weekend!
Sounds delicious! I got my husband a bunch of cocktail themed items for Xmas…. I might have to have him start making me fancy drinks 😉

Sounds delicious! My new favorite drink also includes OJ–Use about 1/4 OJ, 3/4 Ginger Ale, and a shot or two of Vodka–it's a delicious frothy drink and good even without the alcohol!

This drink would make me fall off the wagon immediately – there goes my resolution to drink less! Happy weekend, Elizabeth!
