French 77

While I know January is normally time for cleansing and hitting the gym and starting that diet you have been putting off for months, sometimes you just need a little enticing treat. A little break during happy hour should be welcomed when you are working so hard in other areas of your life. I often feel that we take on too much at once, or at least I know I do, and we put a lot of pressure on ourselves to bury our heads in work and in daily tasks, and we regularly forget to take that step back and just breathe. I personally struggle with this time and again. When I am not working, I fill my days off with to-do lists, workouts, errands, and assignments and I am constantly trying to tell myself to relax and enjoy the day for what it is worth. Today, I did just that. Kris and I are super fond of this little cocktail and we love it so much we knew we had to share it with you. It is a little spin on the classic French 75  and is incredibly delicious. It encompasses just the right amount of sweetness with a strong and biting piney undertone and the bubbles give that extra special effervescence. Oh, I shouldn’t forget to tell you that when I saw the Michelle Brut Champagne, I obviously had to buy it. So fun! We hope that you enjoy because we definitely are! Xo. 

Ps. Kris- “Why did you write an ‘Xo’ at the end?” 

      Me: “Because I’m drunk, honey.”
