Bon Weekend, Couture Cocktails Plus 1 More ~

 
I hope everyone had a fabulous week! The weekend is among us and I am looking forward to relaxing a bit after a very busy week.

Couture Cocktails

Back in May, T and I went to NYC for our 15 year anniversary celebration.  One of our favourite restaurants is Balthazar.  The food, the drinks.. everything is complete perfection so when I found this recipe online I had to share it with you.


According to legend, Chambord originated in France during the reign of Louis XIV.

 

Balthazar French Martini

1 ounce chilled vodka
1 ounce pineapple juice
1/3 ounce Chambord
Ice cubes
 
In a cocktail shaker, combine the vodka, pineapple juice, Chambord and ice cubes.
Shake vigorously to produce a frothy head and strain into a chilled martini glass. Serve straight up. Makes 1 martini.

Les Jeans de Chanel
On September 8th,  Chanel will debut it’s denim-inspired nail lacquer range, Les Jeans De Chanel, in honour of Fashion’s Night Out.  The highly-anticipated nail collection created exclusively by Peter Philips, Creative Director of Chanel Makeup, can be found at selected boutiques and chanel.com.
I hope to pick up Coco Blue and Blue Rebel.  Do you plan to purchase any of these beauties? 
Wishing you a most beautiful weekend!  xoxo, B
