Breakfast at Tiffany’s is a Rose and Raspberry cocktail, made with Belvedere vodka, rose liqueur, lemon juice, raspberry syrup, and an egg white. It’s sweet, slightly floral, and a little bit tart. This Rose and Raspberry cocktail is an easy, elegant drink to serve at any celebration, or for a pre-dinner cocktail.
Confession time, I’ve never actually seen the movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s! I know, it’s appalling. It’s just one of those movies I’ve always meant to see, but never actually gotten around to it. I will get there one day, I am sure. In the mean time, I will just sip on these delicious Breakfast at Tiffany’s cocktails and be happy I at least have these amazing rose and raspberry cocktails in my life!
Peach vodka, fresh raspberry syrup and champagne are combined to make this gorgeous Mother’s Day Raspberry Peach Champagne Cocktail. Sweet, bubbly and full of fresh, fruity flavours, this is the perfect cocktail to serve at a Mother’s Day brunch or any special occasion. Don’t have peach vodka to hand? No problem, I have an easy substitute for you! So raise a glass and let’s call a toast the wonderful Mother figures in our lives.
When I asked my mum what she wanted me to make for Mother’s Day her first answer was shortbread (I’ll be sharing how I obliged with that request very soon) and the second was a cocktail. As my chief taste tester, she’s always very happy when I put mixologist hat on – I mean, who doesn’t love testing new cocktail creations? For her Mother’s Day cocktail I knew I wanted some bright, spring flavours and colours, along with some bubbly – because what’s a celebration without bubbly? Our usual go-to bubbly is Prosecco, because it’s delicious and you don’t have to spend a fortune to get a decent bottle. I went with champagne for this Mother’s Day Raspberry Peach Champagne Cocktail however, because I wanted it to be extra special. However, if like me, your champagne tastes are pretty pricey, you can always substitute with Cava – Champagne’s Spanish cousin, you can get a nice tasting bottle (in my humble, non-sommelier, opinion) for much cheaper than a bottle of champers!
A sweet and tart fruit filling, with a warming kick of ginger, topped with a buttery, crunchy crumble. The perfect size for two to share this Valentine’s Day!
Happy New Year everybody! It’s been a while since I last shared a new recipe with you all, a new job and a very long commute has kept me very busy. I am so excited to be back sharing new recipes and catching up with you all though! And I’m super excited about this Apple, Raspberry and Ginger Crumble for two recipe, it’s really yumy, so easy to make and how adorable is this two-person serving? I just love it! And I bet you will too!
I started my last post talking about how time seems to slip me by and it looks like I’m starting this one off the same way, at least I’m consistent! This post almost didn’t happen, because I did not realise how late into the week we are – it’s Friday apparently?! Did everybody realise this?! Has somebody alerted the PM? (On second thoughts don’t, he’ll probably impose a time tax) It’s actually currently Thursday as I write this, 11:30pm on Thursday – oops! I’ve been baking all evening in the kitchen (where else would you be baking, Michelle?!) and I finally sat down, ready to catch up on some blog reading before I go to bed when it hit me that tomorrow (now today) would be Friday and I hadn’t even started on a post! Luckily I had at least edited the photos, so it’s just the actual writing I have to do. Please tell me I’m not the only one who finds themselves this unorganised on a frequent basis? Lie to me if you have to!

What a week this has been! I’m still recovering from the hen party over the weekend, it was a lot of fun but very exhausting and if you follow me on instagram you will already seen the bruises I came back with! I’m also all full of cold, which is never any fun. And my internet has been down for the last 2 days – and won’t be fixed until Friday afternoon 🙁 So I’m writing this post on Thursday on my phone, then I’m gonna use my phone to tether and format it all properly on my computer – that’s the plan anyway, fingers crossed it works! There is an upside to my net being down and that is I got a lot of spring cleaning done!
