I think a little time travel could have helped us out immensely this year too, it was a bit of a rollercoaster one, so much happened it’s hard to believe it all fit into 365 days! With still a few days left until the clock chimes us into the next one too, who knows what else this year will bring us!

This New Years Eve Cocktail is a great drink to serve whatever your plans are, as it’s so easy to make but it looks really impressive. When you first mix up this New Years Eve Cocktail it is a gorgeous pink colour from the grape syrup, then you stir in the gold lustre dust and it turns into a magical, shimmery, golden colour that is sure to impress.
I have to give a big shout out to and all the credit for the inspiration for this Shimmery New Years Eve Cocktail to Dini over at The Flavor Bender – who first taught us how to make shimmery drinks at home and introduced me to this awesome world of shimmery cocktails!
This Shimmery New Years Eve Cocktail doesn’t only look impressive with its shimmery swirls, but it’s really delicious too! It’s made using a simple grape syrup that is easy to make and is a gorgeous pink colour. You just add an ounce of the grape syrup to your champagne glass, top up with a dry champagne to balance the sweetness of the syrup. You can just stop there if you like, it will look beautiful and taste fantastic – but once you stir in the gold lustre dust you’ve really got a fun and festive New Years Eve Cocktail! You could even swap out the gold lustre dust for a pink one to get a pink shimmery New Years Eve Cocktail!
