To Finish The Year:

I truly hope that the new year brings you some good luck. Lord knows that we all could use some. Try these Champagne cocktails to toast the new year for good luck. Remember that all the alcohol listed in these cocktails is all on sale. That is not even the best part, depending on where you live you could get everything delivered to your home in about one hour. That means that you do not have to run out to the store for supplies.

Plus if you have other party needs such as snacks, or even ice you can have this delivered to you as well. I know, hard to believe is’nt it? It is much safer to stay home with a small group of friend and or family, and have a couple cocktails. Then to go out to a bar or a club this year. Plus most states still have restrictions in place, so bars are closing at 10 pm.

You then have to rush home to have a toast with what you have on hand. So, why not just click the link, stay home and have the party there. Much safer this way No worries about getting a DWI or a DWUI.

Remember to drink responsibly and never drink and drive. The life you save may very well be your own. Have a safe and happy new year my friends. Sincerely: John D. Have a blessed new year.
