'champagne' on Serious Eats
There's something a bit decadent about adding champagne to a recipe for something as simple as cranberry jam. But this recipe from Edible DIY: Simple, Giftable Recipes to Savor and Share makes it all make sense. Ginger adds a welcome touch of heat. The result? Sweet, tart, and zesty jam that goes lovely with cheese or in sandwiches.
Valentine's Day is only two days away. If you're still looking for the perfect gift for your sweetheart, fear not. This Champagne jelly can be whipped together in less than an hour and the results are elegant and delicious. Pair a jar with a box of chocolates or—better yet—a wedge of gooey cheese, and you're sure to set hearts aflame.
This New Year's Eve, I suggest you make this float: a tart, ripe grapefruit sorbet blooming with orange, lemon, and the subtlest whisper of gin. And I suggest you float it in Champagne (or one of these other lovely fizzy things). And I encourage a drizzle of pomegranate molasses, sweet and tart, rich but bracing, a hopeful portent of the year to come.
