They say how you spend your New Year’s Eve will tell you how you’ll spend the rest of the upcoming year. If you’re anything like us, you’ll want a New Year’s Eve full of good food, friends, and of course, luck! We’ve found a way to fulfill all of your hopes and dreams for the new year: Make, share and drink cocktails that’ll bring you good luck!
In Spain, eating 12 grapes as you count down the seconds to the new year is a common good luck tradition. Rather than stuff your mouth full of grapes, try this Sparkling Grape Cocktail.
Europe in general considers eating 12 round fruits before New Years good luck. So drink up your luck with this Pink Grapefruit Martini, too.
Pomegranates are considered good luck in Turkey, because their red, bloodlike color denotes life and fertility and their abundant, round seeds represent prosperity. The fruit is also eaten during the Jewish New Year to ensure that one’s merits increase as abundantly as the pomegranate’s seeds. Get your fix of prosperity by way of Tangerine-Pomegranate Sparklers.
Cheers, and happy new year!
