As the holiday season comes to a close we still have one more night to celebrate. Celebrate what 2013 brought to us and what 2014 has in store. And what better way to reminise with friends than over some vegan cocktails and champagne?
Chef Alex made us all a Hot Toddy at our Native Foods holiday party and with the blustery weather outside it was a welcomed warm treat and would be a great way to end a good year. Below is his recipe:
1 each Cinnamon stick
5 each Cloves
1 each Lemon peel
1 oz Agave nectar
1 cup Hot water
1- With a peeler, peel a 1 inch by 2 inch long lemon peel and press the 5 cloves into the peel.
2- Place in your cup along with the cinnamon stick, agave nectar, bourbon,
3- Pour the hot water into the cup

If you are looking to pop open a bottle of bubbly there are vegan options of champagne as well and I was pleasantly surprised to see my favorite made the list.
2.) Vevue Clicquot ( my favorite)

3.) Domaine Ste. Michelle
*Another good resource is going to barnivore.com to see if the alcohol you have is in fact vegan.
And if you are not into drinking or you are celebrating with your kiddos, Trader Joe's has you covered with a vegan Sparkling Apple Cider.
