Bon Weekend, Couture Cocktails Plus 1 More ~

I hope everyone had a fabulous week! The weekend is among us and I am looking forward to relaxing a bit after a very busy week.

Couture Cocktails

Back in May, T and I went to NYC for our 15 year anniversary celebration.  One of our favourite restaurants is Balthazar.  The food, the drinks.. everything is complete perfection so when I found this recipe online I had to share it with you.

According to legend, Chambord originated in France during the reign of Louis XIV.


Balthazar French Martini

1 ounce chilled vodka
1 ounce pineapple juice
1/3 ounce Chambord
Ice cubes
In a cocktail shaker, combine the vodka, pineapple juice, Chambord and ice cubes.
Shake vigorously to produce a frothy head and strain into a chilled martini glass. Serve straight up. Makes 1 martini.

I hope to pick up Coco Blue and Blue Rebel.  Do you plan to purchase any of these beauties? 
Wishing you a most beautiful weekend!  xoxo, B
