Ending With A Little Chocolaty Sparkle

Or talk about the New Year; goals, dreams, where we want to be, things we have planned. Just so many ways to go. Well, in an effort to be brief yet celebratory I am going to go with a fun little recipe to allow you to ring in the new year with a little bit of liquid sparkle.

We once belonged to a winery up in Auburn. I would love to share the story but then that would take away from the “brief” so, I will say they used to pour their sparkling wine and their chocolate port together. It was yummy.

I have since tried to find a port to make it but have not yet found the perfect port. Theirs was much more chocolaty or something . . . I don’t know, but it made a FABULOUS cocktail. When I offer to pour one for someone they wrinkle their nose and I say, “Ok, fine. You can try mine if you want.” And they do then they want one of their own.


Chocolate Bubbly

Your favorite champagne/sparkling wine
Your favorite chocolate port

Fill the champagne class with champagne/sparkling wine then top with the chocolate port. Enjoy!


You have to experiment with the amount of port to get it to the desired chocolate flavor that you want.

Happy New Year!

  1. I remember having something similar once in a cocktail bar once. It was fun but never found it again.

    Goodness, that is not a combination I would ever have thought of, but it does sound delicious!

    My favorite wine of all time is port! !   Its pricy, but “taylor fladgate” at bevmo is terrific.  Ive also recently found Costco’s sangria is really delicious very sweet and I think it will be something that you will enjoy. I enjoyed hearing the word chocolate and port together. I wonder how they make that, I feel like giving it a trySonja

    • It is funny to hear you say “your favorite wine” because you don’t like wine. But now I know you like port. Wow! Port is not something wine drinkers even like. When we go to Napa they usually have port at the inn and we will have a glass, but I don’t drink it regularly. The chocolate port in the sparkling wine is yummy. I still have this one open from when I posted this. 🙂 WONDERFUL TO HEAR FROM YOU. I was thinking about you then logged on to see you comment! Happy New Year! XO
