Oh, Christmas tree, oh, Christmas tree! Thy leaves belong in this cocktail, according to Woodinville's Herbfarm Restaurant.
The restaurant's Christmas Tree Champagne Cocktail calls for the edible needles of evergreen trees, which, the recipe says, "give it a forst-fresh, citrusy flavor."
"The branch tips of Douglas Fir, Grand Fir, and Noble Fir have the best flavor. During the holidays you can use trimmings from your Christmas tree," the recipe said.
