Last week's cocktail didn't go up because it wasn't my own recipe-- I just made traditional buttered rum.

THIS week, though, we have two cocktails!

1 tangerine plus 6 tangerine slices with rind
1 bottle Champagne, Prosecco, or other sparkling white wine

Muddle with sugar, add gin
Strain equally into 6 glasses
Top with sparkling wine
Add tangerine slices for garnish

Persephone's Peril

1 orange
1 lemon
1 tb sugar
