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!
The Rory Cocktail is a very pink drink, made from pineapple vodka, grenadine and champagne or prosecco, served in a martini glass with a pink sugar rim! A really fun, easy and yummy way to celebrate the return of Gilmore Girls with cocktails and girl power!!
I am very excited today my lovely readers. Because do you know what’s coming up VERY soon? No, I don’t mean my trip to Atlanta. Or Thanksgiving. I’m am so very excited for November 25th! And nope, it’s not because I’m looking for some good Black Friday deals. Have you guessed yet? If the title of this post did not give it away, or the intro blurb, then you must not be a Gilmore Girls fan. That’s right! After 9 long years off of our televisions, Gilmore Girls is back on November 25th!!! There will be a four hour special on Netflix so we can find out what’s going on with our favourite Stars Hollow residents! And not so favourite (go away, Dean). Who else is excited?!
