HIGH FIDELITY and APPLE AND WATERCRESS SALAD WITH WALNUT VINAIGRETTE

A party was planned in our yoga class, as an early Christmas gift to ourselves. We started with Mimosas, moved through our class, then gathered for cocktails and lunch -  salad and a fabulous egg dish our instructor had made.

HIGH FIDELITY


1 ounce grapefruit juice
1 ounce tequila
1 ounce Aperol
Champagne to top

Shake the grapefruit juice, tequila and Aperol over ice. Strain into a flute and top with Champagne.
Enjoy!
