Happy Hour: Kumquat Champagne Cocktail

One of my new favorite past-times is to head down to the farmer's market grab a bunch of tasty produce and relax in the sun at the Hog Island Oyster Company for a few oysters and a cool glass of bubbly. However, this weekend I had to get home to whip up some snacks for a friend's potluck birthday picnic, so there was no time for the bubbly. Not wanting to break my new tradition, I decided to have a glass that afternoon instead. While at the market I picked up a bunch of delicious kumquats and figured they'd make a great addition to the bubbly. While looking for a bit of inspiration, I came across this recipe for a Kumquat Champagne cocktail and knew it was the right recipe for me. To check it out,

Kumquat Champagne Cocktail
From The Surreal Gourmet

10 kumquats - 8 whole, 2 sliced
3 oz Cointreau
3 tbsp sugar
1 bottle champagne

Combine whole kumquats, Cointreau and sugar in a bowl. Use a blunt instrument to smash the kumquats and blend with the other ingredients. Let sit for 30 minutes. Strain off the solids and pour one ounce of liquid into each champagne flute. Top with champagne and garnish with a kumquat slice.
