Blue Galentine’s Party

I’m definitely a romantic, there is no denying that. Beyond romance with my fiancé (we’re cooking homemade pasta and meat sauce on Sunday and I can’t wait), I think celebrating your friendships is uber important. It’s so much fun to dress up and drink some girly cocktails and eat candy!!

I’m super excited to share some behind the scenes pics from our feature with Rue Magazine this month. PS. the February issue is unreal – I can’t wait to read the whole thing with a glass of wine tonight!

Keep reading below for a fun little Valentine’s cocktail that I made which is so easy to recreate this weekend!

DSC_7944I knew that I wanted to make a cocktail that was romantic and easy. Elderflower liqueur immediately came to mind but then when I found this tiny bottle I knew it would be perfect! It reminded me of the love potion that Romeo and Juliet drank that decided their tragic fate. Luckily, this party ended on a totally different note (a lot more fun – ha!)
