So what did you think of Modern Cocktail week?  We had so much fun coming up with the recipes and photographing details.  Oh and tasting everything too!  That was the most fun!  If you weren’t able to join us for the whole week here is a recap of what we did this week.

When we started working on the theme for this week we thought about a party we might like to have or at least be invited to.  We imaged this as a lovely party with drinks and appetizers being served on a lovely patio overlooking a lovely sunset.  Yes, that is a fantasy but we can dream.  With a bit of prep time, not much, you could have this party with your friends over the weekend.  Most of what we gave you can be made ahead of time so you will only need to do last minute details like the crostini, but really just assembly.

We love bringing you our stories of food but we want to hear from you.  What are some of the theme you would like to see from us?  Please connect with us in the comments or on our Facebook page.  Have a wonderful weekend.  We will be back next week with another theme.

We hope you enjoyed Zucchini Week last week.  If you didn’t get a chance to read those posts, go check them out here.  We are going to start this week off with a bang!  We really hope you don’t have to wait until the weekend to try this drink.  We already loved Prosecco and with the addition of Violette Liqueur its divine!  Here is what you need:

4 oz Prosecco

1/2 oz Creme de Violette

Lavender sugar

LemonModernDrinks-18

With the lemon, wet the edge of the glass.  Gently roll the wet edge in the lavender sugar.  Careful not to get inside the glass.  Add 1/2 oz of Creme de Violette and top with Prosecco.How easy was that?!  You can use unflavored sugar if you can’t find lavender sugar.  You don’t want to use regular table sugar with this.  Look for fine sugar, not powdered, just fine grain sugar.  Prosecco is sweeter than Champagne but Champagne would work as well.  We love Cupcake Vineyards Prosecco.

Thank you for join us again!  We would love to connect with you here.  So leave us a comment or connect with us on Facebook.  Happy Monday!
