Be Pretty in Pink with Moet Champagne
Can you believe that it’s almost Valentines Day? With love in the air, it’s the perfect day for anyone, single or taken, to get a little fun and flirty. Whether you’re taking the town by storm with your single gal pals, finally going to ask out that girl (or guy) who twists your stomach into knots and gets you all tongue tied, or staying in for a evening filled with romance, make sure your cocktails are as memorable as the chocolates, roses and love letters.
I’ve written about several cocktails and I hope you have enjoyed them. Feel free to use them as your signature cocktail for your engagement party, rehearsal dinner or wedding. After all, nothing says this is a reflection of who we are as a couple than a special little something-something. Until that day, cuddled with your honey on Valentines Day, or make everyday Valentines Day and toast your love and your future.
