Kentucky Champagne


Just in time for your New Year’s Eve celebrations, I’m sharing with you Kentucky Champagne…one of my favorites!

Can you believe it’s almost the end of 2016?! Whew! It’s been a year of ups and downs, high and lows but through it all we’ve loved visiting with you each week, here at the picket fence! Whatever your New Year’s Eve plans hold, staying in cozy by the fire or celebrating out on the town with friends and family, know we are virtually toasting in 2017 with you!  At our home we love celebrating the arrival of the new year with Kentucky Champagne!

This fun drink pairs well with my semi-homemade croquembouche! Don’t they look festive and beautiful together?
