Happy Friday guys! To celebrate the month of December, I wanted to share with you this delicious recipe, so decadent and so easy to make. I found originally the idea on Pinterest and it uses three ingredients : Champagne [because… December and holiday] or sparkling wine if you prefer, Saint Germain liqueur, and…. cotton candy! Yep, cotton candy, that literally melts in the Champagne, and gives this cocktail a fabulous pink tone and a sweet taste, while the Saint Germain liqueur adds a little sourness to the ensemble.
Since I don’t have a cotton candy machine at home – to the despair of my 2 daughters – and I doubt most of you have one either, I found some packaged cotton candy here for those interested.
PS: On a side note, do you know how we call cotton candy in French? “Barbe à papa”, which literally translates into “dad’s beard.” Pretty sweet, heh?
- Champagne or sparkling wine
- Saint Germain liqueur
- Cotton candy [in any flavor you like]
Place a bit of cotton candy inside your glass. Add a dash of St. Germain, and then fill to the top with Champagne; and watch the cotton candy dissolve in front of your very eyes; drink immediately.
Happy, happy hour, and a lovely weekend to you! Xo, Si-
