Wisdom & a Cocktail {No. 5}

Audrey + Lavender Champagne

Is there anyone who doesn’t adore Audrey Hepburn?  Or a flute full of bubbly?

No?

That’s what we thought.

And so, in honor of two timeless, perpetually elegant, always classic icons, we bring you:

A little light wisdom from Ms. Audrey Hepburn:

I love people who make me laugh.  I honestly think it’s the thing I like most, to laugh.  It cures a multitude of ills.  It’s the most important thing in a person.

And a cocktail to match:

1. Bring 1/2 c sugar + 1/2 c water to a boil in a saucepan, stirring to dissolve sugar

2. Stir in 1 Tbsp dried lavender, remove from heat,  & cool completely

3. Strain out lavender

4. Pour 6 oz champagne + 1 tsp syrup into each flute

5. Garnish each with a sprig of lavender

6. Serve on a fancy silver tray to a room full of lovely guests.
