Gumdrops, for garnish

Directions

In a Champagne glass, combine Champagne, plum wine, and cranberry juice.

Garnish with a gumdrop.

Sugar Shopping Tip

Be sure to purchase the correct flour a recipe calls for – flours differ in gluten or protein content, making each suited for specific tasks.

Sugar Cooking Tip

Insert a toothpick into the center of cakes, bar cookies, and quick breads to test for doneness – it should come out clean or only have a few crumbs clinging to it.
