A BUBBLY COCKTAIL RECIPE FOR SPRING
Spring has sprung and what better way to celebrate it’s forthcoming than with a bubbly floral cocktail made of champagne and lavender!
When I think of spring, I think of fragrant florals, warm sunshine and that feeling you get like you’ve finally come out of the winter hibernation. It’s the time of year when we can’t wait to get outside and frolic!
Most frolicks like social gatherings or brunch include cocktails and with Easter well on its way, I decided it was time to create a signature drink that embodied the very sentiment of spring and I’m calling it the “Spring Cottage”.
The ingredients I used for this libation can be found here and the champagne coupe glasses pictured can be found here. When I first saw these glasses, it was love at first sight, not to mention, they are affordable. I had been looking at similar options but they were all a bit out of my price range and I knew that if I made the commitment and splurged I would never use them and be devastated if one broke. It was an absolute no-brainer and perfect timing as my Mom was asking for Christmas present ideas. Winning!!!!

The napkins I used are available in 100% cotton or linen and they come in a precut roll. They are also washable and the designs are way more elegant than the usual paper towel. I would highly recommend these for your next gathering.
The recipe featured below is so simple and it kicks things up a notch from the everyday mimosa. The fun part aside from the alcohol is in the name. I can’t wait to ask my guests if they would like a spring cottage, I mean who would say no to that, ha!
