Couch's Pink Bubbles & Blue

Updated on February 3, 2012

"Some time ago, I picked up some Nuvo off a liquor store shelf on a whim. I threw it in my bar and forgot about it. It was pink. It was French sparkling wine and vodka. It was the definition of girly. It sat there for awhile before I finally one day felt like trying it. I let it chill and poured myself a glass. Let's just say I don't drink regular champagne anymore. The stuff was phenomenal. And I soon started using it as a mixer. It floats easily, it's got a unique color and a great flavor. And you can substitute it for champagne or wine in almost any cocktail.

Some time later, on a similar whim, I picked up some Hpnotiq. Another French girly product. Vodka, Cognac, and some exotic fruity stuff. A vibrant baby blue color. And like Nuvo, it sat on my bar for some time before I bothered to try it. And once I again, when I finally did try it, I was pleasantly surprised. I can't describe the taste. But it is absolutely deliciously fruitilicious. And with its beautiful color and taste, it makes another great mixer or can be drank straight on the rocks.

The following recipie was adapted from one on the Hpnotiq site. I posted a picture of it awhile ago and got a lot of requests for the mix. So here it is. Hope you enjoy the Pink Bubbles & Blue." ~Couch

Things you'll need:

  • 2 oz chilled Nuvo
  • 2 oz chilled Hpnotiq
  • Maraschino cherry
  • Champagne flute

Step 1 - Try to shake as much of the "juice" off the cherry as you can, then place it in the bottom of the glass.

Step 2 - Add 2 oz of Hpnotiq to the glass.

Step 3 - Float 2 oz of Nuvo on top.

Step 4 - I like to add a couple drops of the maraschino cherry "juice" to the top of the drink. It will usually mix with the Nuvo and stay above the Hpnotiq. It just makes the top half a little more reddish.

Step 5 - Try to enjoy the drink and not just down it in one gulp. Believe me, this is harder then it seems. It's very delicious.

Notes: In my opinion, it tastes best with chilled liquor, but can be made with room temperature if you prefer sparkling wine that way.

      I can't say I am much for alcohol, but this hub will be useful for my next dinner party. Some of my friends enjoy a drink or two at supper. I'll have to try this one out.
