Spring Elderflower + Prosecco Cocktail.

The weather is warming up and more + more events are starting to pop up on my weekend calendar. From brunches to bridal luncheons and baby showers to Spring dinners and birthday parties it seems there is always room for a nice classic cocktail. This one is simple but always makes a beautiful presentation.

I love the fizz of a nice glass of Prosecco or something bubbly. The clean and crisp taste makes it very nice to sip on and is a great “starter” to get your event going.

Sometimes for a party, even a classic can use a new and fun twist. I gathered just a few more ingredients (and this gorgeous vintage coupe glass!) to turn a plain ol’ glass of Prosecco into a fancy cocktail for you.

Elderflower, which is the flavor in St. Germain, is just the most beautiful little hint of floral flavor. I think it adds just the right addition of flavor profile and depth to the cocktail to keep in fresh + signature. And the freshness + aroma of the thyme with those delicate little leaves just feels so sweet and elevated to me. Any excuse to use herbs!

Spring Elderberry + Prosecco Cocktail :

  • 1 bottle Prosecco

  • 1 bottle St. Germain

  • A few springs of fresh herbs (one per glass)

Using your favorite serving glasses, pour about 3/4 way full with prosecco. Next, add just a splash of St. Germain to really make the flavors pop. Lastly, garnish each glass with a fresh herb spring. I used thyme and it went really well with the other flavors.

Swiss and Leek Quiche.

Just in time for a breakfast-in-bed or Sunday Brunch kind of Mother's Day, this go-to breakfast classic is one of my favorites. 

They say that "real men don't eat quiche" but here in the South we beg to differ. There are a million variations on the traditional quiche and this one is packed full of savory flavor. I'm a breakfast lover through and through (if you couldn't tell from my love of buttermilk biscuits or this egg casserole ...) so I hope you enjoy this one as much as I do.
