Even more beautiful at night.....

This is a daring proposition - for those with courage. This bed lies in the heat of an African Game Reserve deep in the heart of the Serengeti. The name of the Reserve is Singita, meaning place of miracles, which is exactly what you need if the rightful owners of the ecosystem size you up from the other side of this small canal separating you from their wilderness.

Coconut Vanilla Bellini
What you need:
- 1 bottle of prosecco
- 16 ounces of a coconut juice blend or coconut pureed nectar

For the sugared rims:
- 1/4 cup white sanding sugar
- 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1 vanilla bean

Directions:
- To prepare the sugared rims, combine sanding sugar, granulated sugar, the scraped seeds of the vanilla bean and the vanilla bean pod in a large bowl and mix. You can do this a few days ahead of time if desired.
- Coat the rims of 8 champagne flutes in something sticky and sweet, such as leftover frosting or marshmallow fluff.
- To make the cocktails, pour 2 ounces of the coconut juice blend or puree into the bottom of the flute. Fill the remaining space with prosecco and stir with a long spoon to mix.
- Serve immediately!
