Champagne Cocktail

aletnes | Dec 19, 200704:05 AM

I am hosting a small dinner party for Christmas Eve and wanted to serve a champagne cocktail with appetizers. I was thinking of creating my own, since I really don't want something fruity.

My thought was a cinnamon/vanilla twist.. Maybe make a simple syrup with vanilla bean and cinnamon.

1. Does that sound like a feasible cocktail?

2. What champagne (under $15) would you suggest? I am not sure if I should go dry to counteract the sweetness, or a little sweeter so they will blend better. I have a World Market where I ususally buy my wines, but can go to other wineshops too.
