Valentine’s Day Cocktails

Sweetest Valentine's Day Cocktail by Fashionable Hostess6

As I mentioned in last week’s Valentine’s Day Bar Cart display, I wanted to share a closer look at the specialty drinks I whipped up and it’s not just due to the recipe. The actual cocktail portion is incredibly simple, being primarily rosé champagne and a splash of St. Germain {elderflower liqueur}, which makes it just a bit sweeter. Pink, a hint of sweetness, and bubbly, that’s pretty much checks across the board! But what really makes it really Valentine’s worthy was in the way I prepared it.

Before filling my glasses with the champagne, I dipped the flute rims in a shallow dish of agave, followed by a shallow dish of gold sugar to create a gold sugared rim. I let them dry for minimum of 10 minutes before then moving on to filling the glasses. After filling my cocktails, I took out Sugarfina candy lips and stuck tooth picks through the middle, so I could lay them across the top. Next I took XO hangtags and tied one at the bottom of each glass. The finishing touch was displaying mini bottles of rosé chandon alongside the cocktails so everyone could help themselves to a top off. Seriously in love with the girly finished product! Cheers!

    Ever since your bar cart post I am been itching to restyle mine. The hubby has taken it over and it looks pretty cluttered. I am thinking of adding some champagne bottles and restyling it so it looks more feminine!

    I absolutely love the presentation of these!

    Where do you get your gold sugar for the rim from?

    Thank you!!

      Hi Shelby! I actually got it at Publix in the cake section. Although Party City is a good place to search too! Or even Amazon!
