Pink Packaged Moët & Chandon Rose Champagne

Pink Boxed Moet & Chandon Rose Champagne with Gold Pen

I love this pink boxed Moët & Chandon Rosé “Tag Your Moët” set!  The set comes with two champagne glasses and a gold pen to write your message on the champagne bottle. This would be a fabulous keepsake for a wedding, an anniversary, a proposal or engagement party or for your perfect Valentine wish to your sweetheart.

If you can’t find the boxed set, you could always buy a bottle of the Moët & Chandon Rose Imperial champagne and a gold marker to create your own version of this special addition box.

What an amazing gift to give and to receive!

Valentine’s Day Romeo and Juliet Cocktail

Romeo and Juliet Cocktail

Looking for a tasty cocktail to serve on Valentine’s Day for a party or a romantic dinner for two? Try the Romeo and Juliet Cocktail. It starts with my favorite, Patron Silver tequila, and the mix of Grand Marnier, Chambord and peach juice is fabulous.

1 1/2 oz. Patron Silver tequila
1/2 oz. Grand Marnier
1/4 oz. cherry or Chambord raspberry liquor
2 oz. chilled peach juice
3 maraschino cherries, garnish
Orange spiral, garnish

Fill a cocktail shaker with ice; add tequila (you can substitute Absolut Apeach), Grand Marnier, cherry liquor and peach juice. Shake vigorously for 10 seconds and pour into a chilled fluted glass or large martini glass.

Place orange spiral on the lip of the glass so it drapes down the side. If you’re using a fluted glass, drop a cherry into the drink.  For a martini glass, you can skewer three cherries on a swizzle stick and lay it across the lip.

Alpine Martini for the Holidays

Saturday, November 10th, 2012

I love the picture of this martini and admit, I had to find the recipe to see what the snowball looking thing was in the cocktail.  Turns out it’s Douglas Fir Sorbet. Who knew there was such a thing? Turns out you have to make it yourself and that’s a little more work than I think I will ever do for a cocktail. I’m not sure where I’d find Douglas Fir fronds in Southern California, but it does look interesting.

Mad Scientist Halloween Martini

Tuesday, August 14th, 2012

If Halloween is one of your favorite holidays, now is the perfect time to start thinking about some of the little details that make a great party. Food, drinks and decor are some of the areas where creativity really stands out.

This Mad Scientist Halloween Martini is actually called “Frog in a Blender” and is a wild concoction of jello pieces, lemon-lime carbonated beverage, maraschino cherries and does not contain alcohol. For an adult party, add vodka or try your favorite alcohol on a test run before serving to guests to find what works best.
