CHAMPAGNE COCKTAIL & TWITTER FOLLOWERS

No, I do not want to buy 100,000 Twitter followers! (lol)  How many of you get these requests on a daily basis, and why in the world does anyone want to pay for a follower?  What is the purpose I ask, and why spend money for someone to basically hang out with you, dang it??????  Is it really all that important to be popular on Social Media? That's my mini-rant to end the year. *heh*




If you still have cranberries at your house, you may as well use them for something even more elegant, like a champagne cocktail, right?  Here's a super simple recipe that tastes yummy and will impress all your friends.



POMEGRANATE CRANBERRY CHAMPAGNE
To make this more festive and fancy, put everything in a champagne glass.


Ingredients & Directions
2 Tablespoons Chilled Vodka of your choice
1 Tablespoon Chilled Pomegranate Juice ( I use POM)
1 Tablespoon Chilled Cranberry Juice
Add Cranberries or Cherries from a Jar
Top off with your favorite champagne or sparkling wine

This recipe is good for one serving.

NEW YEAR PLANS
Every single year, I watch New Year's Rockin' Eve, or all the rest of the musical programs that come on television.  There are a few exceptions when I celebrated with fireworks in the local park with hubby, had to work because no one else showed up, or went out for a steak dinner.  Other than that, I'm safely on the couch watching something drop, along with my book and a cheeseburger. (lol)  


In New York, a ball is dropping.

In NC, an acorn is dropping.

What happens in your neck of the woods?

  1. I have the same reaction to those requests to buy followers or the ones that are strictly there to 'promote' my tweets.

    I love how you have the simple recipes that sound delicious. This sounds doable for a nice holiday party beverage.

    I stay at home mostly these days for New Year's and watch the celebrations and the ball drop on TV.

    Have a Happy New Year, Ro!

    1. I could use that extra cash on cheeseburgers and chocolate, so no, no, no! (lol) If it gets too dang hard, I'm guaranteed to screw it up. Yay for couches on New Year's Eve!

  2. Yeah I dont get those bought followers either. I like people who engage, not troll or be a robot...

    It's awfully warm here in TN. It's a good change, but the weather patters are driving me crazy! One day we'd be using the AC, then we have to turn up the heater next. It's crazy!

  3. Yep, I see those get 1000 Twitter followers here! lol No thanks.

    Here in Las Vegas they set off fireworks on top of several of the Hotels on the Strip. I will be on my couch watching it all.

  4. A guitar drops here in Nashville, but no way do I go out there and stand in the cold to watch it with thousands of people! I'm like you...I stay home and watch the NY one. And now they don't even time delay it for us anymore...so we just celebrate at 11pm with New York and then go to bed usually!

    1. LOL! I've pondered the thought of hanging out for a visit to New York, then reality set in, because like you, I'm not standing in the cold when I could be INSIDE with a cheeseburger. (lol)

  5. Yeah, I get those buy followers thing both for Twitter and for Instagram... I think in some places, it's 'important' to show that you have a lot of followers, but I just want interactions. I doubt that will happen with bought followers, you know?
    The Cranberry Champagne cocktail looks delicious! I might try that for New Years, Ro, thanks for sharing.

  6. Those twitter follower things are so weird. I do wonder who uses them. Obviously there are plenty of people who are out there buying followers because there are so many people selling them. I'm barely able to keep up with Twitter as it is. I definitely don't need 10,000 robot followers! I think there's something space related here on NYE. They started it last year and if I remember right it's an astronaut landing on the moon. Pretty much everyone here works for the space industry in some capacity so it's pretty fun.

    1. Totally agree, and have really been trying to understand it. There just seem to be so many people selling, I guess you're right that people are buying. Space related stuff for New Year's sounds pretty cool. Happy New Year!

  7. Yeah Ro, I'm SO with you! I could never pay someone to be my friend or to :follow me"whatever that even mean anyway. But don't get me wrong, the idea has tempted me sometimes but then I think about it and I'm like..Nah, I'll just save my money on like...gum or something. teehee Want to know what i'm looking forward to for New Years? S'MORES! THAT'S WHAT!

    Happy Holidays RO RO! <3 XOXO

    1. Hey There Kute Keionda and hope your holidays were great and relaxing. I'm with you, girl. I'd rather spend any extra cash on a gourmet cheeseburger, books or something else fun. Gum sounds good too! (lol) Yay to s'mores!!!!!

  8. Our acorn is so funny to me. I've never gone to see it drop though.

    I don't get the followers either. I think some of the BIG blogs on FB bought their likes too. They rarely have interactions (or any real ones) but will have 50,000 followers. Mmhm.

    1. I think that acorn thing is funny, too. I also heard that somewhere in NC a pickle drops! (lol) The purchase of followers I will NEVER understand, yet there are tons of marketers over there selling that stuff. Hugs...
