        A toast is always called for to welcome in the New Year. This is beyond easy. The hardest part for me was uncorking the Prosecco bottle. I actually had to drive to a nearby restaurant and ask them to open it for me!

one bottle of the bubbly of your choice, I used Prosecco—inexpensive and delicious
2-4 Tablespoons Crème de Cassis
fresh raspberries (optional)

Make the Kir Royale:
Put 2-3 teaspoons of the Crème de Cassis in 4 champagne flutes. To control the fizz, fill each glass about ¼ full with the Prosecco. Then slowly fill to about 2/3 full. Drop 3 or 4 fresh raspberries in each glass and CELEBRATE!

Makes 4 servings.      YUM!

LESSONS Learned:
1. Crème de Cassis is only about 20% alcohol, so unlike other liqueurs, it needs to be refrigerated after opening.
2. If you pour a small amount of the Prosecco, about ¼ full, in the glass first, and let those bubbles subside, it will help control the bubbles from overflowing.

I have decades of experience creating and producing online marketing. I left the corporate world to work independently with people who need help establishing and maintaining their online presence. Not everyone knows how, has the aptitude, or time to learn how to use online marketing tools, and nor should they have to try. Those people who need help and/or don't want an in-house marketing team work with me. Each client has different needs, goals and expectations. I do custom work for each of my clients. I get to know each person and know their voice, their style, rhythm and budget. 

I have a large skill set that covers the range of tasks for online marketing. It is both easy and cost efficient to work directly with me. I can get the whole job done.
