Leftover fruit salad?  Check.
Bottle of (cheap?) Champagne? Check.

Now all you need is a bottle of awesome ginger liqueur!  This bottle of Domaine de Canton isn’t the cheapest, at about $30 a bottle, but it goes a long way, and is great for making innovative cocktails.  A little sweet ginger liqueur is also great to spruce up a glass of white wine.

This cocktail really was the result of some leftover fruit salad from a party, combined with my ginger addiction.  It turned out to be delicious!

1 part Canton Ginger Liqueur
2 parts Champagne (or sparkling wine)
spoonful of fruit salad (or any chopped sweet fruits)
